Toby (Sean Laguna) is the happiest boy alive - because his dad (Joe Mannetti) allowed him to mail-order a seamonkey - but of course, once the seamonkey arrives, it's nothing but some weird dry crap that does (seemingly) nothing when it comes into touch with water ... for two whole weeks, before mum (Stacie Stocker) flushes the seamonkey down the toilet and dad tells Toby why he has come off easy regarding pets over a glass of whiskey - because when he was Toby's age, he had to shoot his own dog because the dog had attacked someone ...

A few weeks later, Toby's eccentric grandma (Lynn Lowry) comes for a visit - and exactly that day, the sea creature returns home through the sink, but now it's angry ... and eventually, Toby has to come to the conclusion that his best bet for survival is his grandma - it's just, grandma's memory isn't what it used to be, her nicotine addiction is getting in her way in more ways than one, and she IS a selfish bitch. But still ...

 

Night of the Seamonkey is above all else FUN: Narratively and stylistically it might be a mix of Tales from the Crypt-like horror stories with a twist ending and a sort of moral, and 1980's low budget monster movies produced by Charles Band and the like - but not in a derivative way, but made with a zest and gusto so the result is something that feels entirely fresh ... and apart from that, genre veteran gives probably one of the most hilarious performances of her career.

Great fun, really!
