Blue Monkey (1987)

Nothing too original here. The lighting sort of helps the movie at times; hiding the creature, but overall sort of a murky movie. Pretty much a waste of Steve Railsback (so good as Duane Berry in X-Files and Manson in Helter Skelter)and Joe Flaherty(the comic relief a little flat). Not only that but Railsback gets second billed to the creature. But still some decent action scenes (nice beheading) and fair amount of predictable drama. The hospital,unbelievable as it may be, provides a fairly good setting. A previous reviewer astutely mentioned the ‘Alien’ imitations. That’s pretty much what you got here: ‘Them’ crossed with ‘Alien’ and not as good as either, of course
