Monkey Boy ★★½ 1990

Decent sci-fi horror from Britain, about a cunning human-ape hybrid that escapes from a genetics lab after massacring the staff. Not excessively gruesome or vulgar, and some sympathy is aroused for the killer mutant. Based on the novel “Chimera.” 104m/C VHS . John Lynch, Christine Kavanagh, Kenneth Cranham; D: Lawrence Gordon-Clark.
