Little Wing (Suzi Lorraine) is a weird one: She talks in a clichéed
Chinese accent even though she doesn't look one bit Asian, and her mother
Madam Won Ton (Debbie Rochon), who has brought her up on her own, isn't
Asian either - which doesn't keep her from running a Chinese restaurant of
course, in which Little Wing works as a waitress, even though she's the
clumsiest thing around. Little Wing is also pregnant, but that is a birth
defect ... or so we're told until Madam Won Ton finally (after 30 years)
takes her to a doctor (Gunnar Hanson), and he tells Madam Won Ton Little
Wing is suffering from a fetus in fetu, or a parasitic twin, which needs
to be removed ... and thus, Won Ton Baby is born, a baby with great hair
who is still attached to and can control his umbilical chord, with rather
monstruous extremities, and of course his behaviour is more than a little
odd, even violent.
Now Madam Won Ton is of course no holywoman, back in
the 1970's, when she was impregnated Little Wing by an Elvis imitator (Lou
Martini jr) - which is where Won Ton Baby's great hair comes from - she
ran a brothel, but was also very much working there as a prostitute ...
but this is all something she never told Little Wing preferring to let her
believe her father was Chinese and left them the restaurant when he passed
away (which was of course actually her whorehouse all those years ago).
Nowadays, Madam Won Ton is an alcoholic not known for always making the
right decisions - but she loves Little Wing and her son Ben (Abe Tran) -
who's actually half-Asian - nevertheless, and her new boyfriend, detective
Hardin (Lou Martini jr again) is determined to finally set her straight.
Ton Baby starts to behave weirder and weirder, like the time when he kills
and eats a mouse, or when he is caught masturbating to a diarrhea porn
flick, but nothing can affect Little Wing's love to him - but everyone
else is freaked out by the little one, so it's decided he ought to spend
the night in Madam Won Ton's restaurant ... where he starts killing (and
sometimes eating) people, like the staff still there, people who live in
the rooms above the restaurant - oh, and he even rapes a girl (Kiran
Malhotra) who passes out drunk just outside the restaurant.
bodies are found, Won Ton Baby is quickly identified as the killer ... but
where has he gone. Little Wing could probably help ... but with the love
she has for Won Ton Baby, Madam Won Ton has a lot of explaining to do to
win her over to the side of good ...
Won Ton Baby! is a
film that is quite simply fun: It is totally grotesque of course, and
despite its parallels to films like It's
Alive! and Basket Case
rather irreverent, it has all the laughs but also the shocks in the right
places, and it has as much actual heart as it has guts flying around. In
all, it's very possibly not the next Citizen Kane, but it is nice
and rather well-played low budget entertainment, several scenes of which
(and not just the obvious) will stay with you for quite a few days after
