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>

LOTSA FUN!
21 April 2002 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

As long as you approach this one knowing it is a spoof of Big Bug Movies of the 1950s, you can have a lot of fun watching this -- over and over again, I might add. My favorite bad movie. The monster bears no resemblance to any kind of monkey, which always makes my kids crazy when we talk about this film. It also simply is not scary, except maybe for one quick chase sequence in the hospital basement. Even then, my two teenage daughters think it simply looks ridiculous -- sort of like the giant spider in the recent ARACHNID. In fact, when we recently viewed ARACHNID, all I could think of was BLUE MONKEY, thanks to a similar chase sequence through a cave. BLUE MONKEY is good, harmless fun for all. The title makes it.
