Congratulations, it's a mutant.
24 April 1999 | by Axiom-2See all my reviews

This very low budget film is really called "Monkey Boy". It is a really crappy movie. The only good thing about it was the Laser Disc jacket that it came in.

It was another .50cent disc that I took a chance on. I mainly bought it because of how funny the cover looked. It said: They made him. They raised him. Now he's coming out to play.

Then they have a picture of him, with the title "Monkey Boy" under it. On the back it has the statement:

Congratulations, its a mutant...

Its a .50cent disc that I have had alot of laughs with. But, "Monkey Boy" is another movie that I can't figure out why they would release the Laser Disc of it. Let alone even make.
