Production started in 1987, but due to the abundant stop-motion creations and special effects, production took years longer than planned and after several lawsuits involved with the distributors, Vidmark entertainment was given distribution rights. The film was released in 1993 to film festivals and shortly after onto video. See more »

This movie was lots of fun to watch. If you enjoyed the anything-goes direction or creative-even-though-they-look-fake special effects of older monster movies, than you'll love this update, which almost seems to be a homage to schlock films. The plot is extremely simple, a top-secret organization finds alien DNA and begins to test it out on various animals. A scientist injects himself with the DNA and through a series of really gross, slimy, nasty transformations turns into a giant monster and runs amok in the lab where he works. First of all, the movie isn't for the faint of heart. It's really gory for the year it came out. REALLY. There was one part where the lead character gets his hand pretty much ripped to shreds by this frog-looking mutant, and he gets his assistant to pour sulphuric acid over it while the camera zooms in to show his mutilated hand being burned off. Or when his lab assistant gets her eyes gouged out. There's many, many other juicy bits, including a guy getting his head bitten off and another guy getting half his face ripped off, both shown close-up in all their glory. There's also many closeups of the scientist's festering, oozing skin as he transforms. There are many other outrageous looking mutants, like a dog that looks like it was spliced with a shark, and a giant monster crab. The movie is so full of special effects, makeup, gore, and weird looking, stop-motion animated creatures that you'd swear it was from the eighties. The monster that is killing people in the lab looks like a cross between a rhino and one of those Sandworms from Beetlejuice. This movie is great for a Sunday afternoon when you don't feel like thinking. It's more of a showcase for the great special effects than anything else.
