Revenge of Billy the Kid (1991)

Film details


Story of the MacDonald family, the crudest, most grotesque family ever, who live a solitary life on their farm on Gahenna Island, a place where nobody dare visit. Soon after the drunken Gyles MacDonald has an undesirable encounter with the farmyard goat, she gives birth to a half-man/half-goat mutant. Gyles' daughter takes pity on the creature and names it Billy but when it starts growing, Gyles tries to dispose of it by throwing it in the river. A while later, various animals are found inexplicably mutilated around the farm and the dead bodies of two poachers are also discovered. Billy has survived and wants his revenge.
