Bizarre little black comedy throws everything at the screen, hoping some of the gross-out humor will prove amusing (and some does). Greedy TV star Ricky Coogin (Winter) agrees to be the spokesman for E.E.S. Corporation, which markets a toxic green slime fertilizer to the third world. He's sent to South America to promote the product and is captured by the mad scientist proprietor (Quaid) of a mysterious sideshow, who douses him with the fertilizer. Before you know it he's an oozing half-man, half-beast, perfect to join other freaks as the latest attraction. Lots of yucky makeup. Reeves has an uncredited cameo as the Dog Boy.

This movie is very corny, strange and yet somehow likable. This is the best I've ever seen Randy Quaid (I never thought I'd actually hear myself say that, but still...he was good!) Strange creatures, half-mutant people, plenty of 80s style humor (although this was made in 1993). Worth a watch once. You may like it and appreciate the bizarre humor, or wind up thinking it was awful!
