Wild Thing (1987)

Screening this as part of the #nightdropbox.

This movie is insane. It's basically a modern day (80's at least) retelling of the Tarzan story. A young child witnesses the murder of his parents at the hands of a lunatic and realising that he might be next, jumps into the river. After being raised by a tramp on the streets he has hardly any grasp of the English language and so communicates via TV commercials and radio voices. He falls in love with a woman who was attacked by a local mob boss, the same guy is the one who killed his parents and after realising this... The rest you'll have to see.

The soundtrack for this is pure gold. 80's electro synth at times with the odd classic track thrown in for good measure.

It's a decent film but highly forgettable.
