No trailer, but you can try to make it through the whole movie on youtube.

"THEY BREED. THEY HATCH. THEY KILL. Maybe it's just a phase they're going through." "There's a bad bug goin' around." Blue Monkey Original Video One Sheet. No monkeys, blue or otherwise. No idea where the name comes from. The monster is more like a giant fly that terrorizes a hospital. Also known as "Insect," which makes more sense. In one pivotal scene, the insect is flying around trying to get the main characters, but is obviously just being swung around on a cable. Unbelievable. Only available on VHS and BETA, which may be a good thing. Trailer here. From 1987.
