A small-town crime boss accepts delivery of a stolen car, only to find there’s a baby in the back-seat. He and his transvestite “wife” cut out the boy’s tongue and raise him as a mute accomplice in their crimes. When the grown “Sonny Boy” escapes and tries to make contact with the outside world, the attention he draws to his warped family results in darkly-humored mayhem.
Sonny Boy is a one of a kind horror/comedy with an exceptional cast. Paul L. Smith (Midnight Express, Crimewave) plays his usual over-the-top man/monster role, David Carradine his transvestite wife, Brad Dourif (legend!) the aptly named Weasel, and Dourif’s Cuckoo’s Nest co-star Sydney Lassick, the slimy Charlie P. Michael Griffin is exceptional in the title role. Pity he didn’t go on to do anything else. Maybe making Sonny Boy scarred him for life?!
