Storyline

A company that produces a toxic chemical tries to improve its image via a popular spokesperson, Ricky Coogan. Ricky travels to South America to get a first-hand look at the chemical's effects and finds himself at a mutant freak farm. Elijah, who runs the farm, is only too happy to have new subjects on which to try his freak machine. The very chemical that Ricky is supposed to promote is the one responsible for creating the great variety of freaks. Written by Christine Sai-Halasz <sai@mit.edu>

Trivia

About eleven minutes of footage was cut from the film. Some proof of this can be heard near the end when Skye Daley says "Sorry to interrupt you, Rick, but you've been talking for almost ninety minutes." The footage was cut, due to the reactions of test audiences. See more »

Goofs

When Ricky leaves Skuggs' den with the very important clue, he is walking on the dolly track, which can be seen toward the end of the shot. See more »

This movie probably didn't make much but this is funny & stupid at the same time. There are many camoes by famous stars. Keanu Reeves as the dog boy, once again, co-staring with A. Winter from BILL & TED movies. B. Shields appears in a weird role & R. Quaid is hilarious here. There's awesome make-up effects. MR. T in a bizarre role 2. this is a must see who like 2 see cheesy yet funny movies. Plus, 2 my delight, I found out that this movie is in THX. So if u can blast it in your Dolby Digital Surround Sound THX theater system. its a blast.
