A detective discovers that a series of local murders is somehow linked to a hair tonic formula with some unusual properties. When some of the tonic is accidentally spilled into a tank of Zebra Mussels -' the fun really starts.

A low budget, monster-on-the-loose flick with elements of horror and comedy blended together in equal measure. Some fine location photography and an exceptionally good soundtrack help offset the films general lack of suspense, a weak script and some wooden acting. The film could easily trim fifteen minutes off and it would be a nice, lean addition to the horror-comedy genre. As it stands, it starts off slow but gets into a nice rhythm in the second half and actually delivers some genuinely funny moments. The creature is acceptably gross and there's plenty of gore on hand for those into that type of thing.
