    I ordered BLUE MONKEY. We have history. Being a huge fan of "Killer Party", I would go to my local video store and check this book they had on a counter which told you most movies available on VHS. After finding out who directed "Killer Party", it said "Blue Monkey" was his newest film. I had an ad tucked away in my collection from Variety Magazine called "Green Monkey". Same film, different title, lol. So I call every video store in Reno, NV. to see who has a copy of "Blue Monkey". Find it and rent it several times. In the early days of Ebay, I purchased a new copy on VHS and watched the heck out of it. In recent times, I've been wanting to find another sealed copy but prices were out of my range. Well - here we are. Blu Ray. Yeah...ordered.:cool:

    Checked out Blue Monkey last night. I had only ever seen a dodgy VHS rip before, so this Blu-ray was a very welcome upgrade. The disc is barebones except for a trailer, but the movie looks good and the glow-in-the-dark cover is pretty nifty as well. For all their irritating shenanigans Dark Force has put out some suprisingly solid releases.

    It's always good to see more William Fruet on disc, one of the seminal Canuxploitation directors. Now if only someone could rescue Funeral Home from bootleg-DVD purgatory, we've been waiting a long time on that one.

    Blue Monkey has to be the most stupid title for a giant killer insect movie. INSECT at least makes sense. That all being said, I wasn't into this film when I finally tracked down a rip of it a few years back.

    It's very wholesome. It's like a 50s giant insect movie script that was dusted off and made in the 80s.

    $35+shipping is way too much, but bundled with the terrific Primal Rage made it a decent deal.

    That's probably a factor as to why I didn't enjoy it. I'm really not into those kind of movies.

    Eek... it sounds like Bill is going to have to get both of his legs amputated. That's pretty horrible, I can't imagine having to go through that.

    That’s rough. I watched with the volume down. What’s causing it?

    My thoughts go out to Bill for sure....

    Well that looks terrible and is horrible to hear but why does that video feel so exploitative?

    Whoa. The ulcers or whatever you call that. How does one let it get to that stage? Terrible.

    His one leg looks like it has flesh-eating bacteria, It looks black and wasting away :eek: I feel bad for him but he most likely brought this on himself with poor diet and no exercise for many years.
