But the bad guys leader, Cole, disguises himself as a doctor, breaks into the woman's hospital room and murders her.

10 November 2003 | by (Rot'N'Fester, NY) – See all my reviews

Ok, so you guys thought Ed Wood was a hack? Worst director ever? I think you need to re-evaluate your previous ideals and look into Andy Milligan. Although I state worst director does not in return mean that I think he's horrible. I would like to see Milligan become another director with one of those cult like followings. Monstrosity was one of those films where I had to sit myself down and say "I only paid $7.99, I only paid $7.99," but I did enjoy it..for $7.99 (I bought the double feature dvd that also featured Weisman's Graverobbers aka Dead Mate). This is one of those films where you have to go in with an open mind...I was laughing...but I'm not even sure if it was a good laugh or an "I'm slowly going insane" laugh..The ending of the movie didn't seem quite right along with bits and pieces of the movie..but I'm sure that's just due to an extremely low budget. For hardcore horror fans and open minded movie lovers I suggest this film but with caution. May cause mild post traumatic stress disorder due to the extreme weirdness. Enjoy! And remember Frankie loves Teddy!
