Storyline

While working in a greenhouse, a man receives an insect bite after touching an exotic plant. Immediately, he falls ill and is taken to an emergency room where the doctors diagnose him as suffering from an unknown bacteria, and a strange parasite which emerges from his mouth as a large slimy wormlike creature. Soon, there are more cases of bacterial infection, but the more immediate problem for the hospital is the wormlike creature which after accidental exposure to a genetic growth stimulant grows to monstrous proportions and starts a reign of terror and bloodshed in the hospitals abandoned wing. Written by Patrick D. Rockwell <prockwell@thegrid.net>

The greatest horror movie I have ever seen
6 September 2005 | by (Slovenia) – See all my reviews

Steve Railsback's greatest performance(besides in two episodes of "The X-files")was in "Blue monkey".The movie itself is simply fantastic.The story,special effects,the actors,....They are all combined together in the greatest horror movie ever filmed.I'm not kidding.This movie deserves better vote results.It's true that this is a low budget movie,but it's still the best.Steve Railsback,Ivan E.Roth,Gwynyth Walsh and Don Lake did everything perfect. When I first saw this movie I was about 11 years old.The movie was titled "Insect".I still remember being so scared that I watched half of the movie with my eyes closed.Since then I've seen it about 20 times(minimum). My vote:10 out of 10.Believe me. (greatings from Slovenia)
