Take a fifties-style horror film in the tradition of 'Them' and 'The Fly' and the cross it with the spectacular special effects of the eighties and you've got BLUE MONKEY. This bizarre tale of horror begins in a greenhouse where a mysterious plant rubs its first victim the wrong way. So wrong that he lands at County Memorial Hospital where he gives "birth" to a hideous wormlike creature! Police detective Jim Bishop (Steve Railsback, Lifeforce) and Doctors Glass (Susan Anspach, Five Easy Pieces) and Carson (Gwynyth Walsh, The Crush) manage to contain the 'thing', but within hours, the BLUE MONKEY has developed into a grotesque insect of gigantic proportions. Now roaming the corridors looking for its favorite food - human bones - the creature is virtually indestructible. And when it produces an egg-laying female, only one course of action seems apparent.. Blow the hospital and everyone inside away!
From the writer of the of 80's video store hits 'Children of the Corn', 'Force: Five' and 'Nowhere to Hide', the cult classic BLUE MONKEY (aka 'Insect') features an all-star supporting cast that includes Sara Polley (Zach Snyder's Dawn of the Dead), Robin Duke (Groundhog Day), John Vernon (Animal House), Joe Flaherty (SCTV) and Done Lake (Netflix's Space Force) .
