Critic Reviews for Man-Made Monster

Chaney brings pathos to his role, supported by fine makeup and visual effects.

It was fun but far to generic to warrant a re-watch, and due to this, it gets a three, but I'd recommend you give it a watch if you have an hour and nothing else to do...

Every aspect of Man Made Monster is perfect for what it sets out to be.
