Pretty Lame Stuff
19 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The megazoid is a cross between a bad gorilla suit and a big parrot. It is also known as the most dangerous alien creature yet captured in some futurist time. To have one in your possession is a capital crime. A man of science whose marriage is falling apart because of his cowardice and insensitivity has one of these things in a kind of natural history setting. He must kill it because it is about to give birth and spread these things all over the planet. So what does a coward do? He goes to a place where duplicates of himself can be made. He spends a hundred thousand dollars for this purpose and the duplicate is born. He has a Cinderella thing going. He must kill the megazoid before midnight or he will go back to oblivion. Of course, things aren't that simple. The duplicate, over time, will begin to embrace the being of the original. This is fine until the guy shows up at the original's house. The beast has been shot but survives and wreaks some havoc. The creature is one of the dumbest looking low budget pieced together things ever put forward. There are some interesting things that go on, but overall, this is a clunker.
