Director: Rene Cardona
Main Stars: Jose Elais Moreno, Carlos Lopeze Moctezuma, Armando Silvestre, Norma Lazareno
Storyline: A female wrestler wants to save her sons life so they try an experiment which mixes his blood with an ape.
Review (Spoils): Female wrestler Lucy (Norma Lazareno) with her snazzy devil costume beats the crap out of people for a living. The years of doing this and hurting people is starting to wear on her mental health and she wants to quit plus her son (Carlos Lopeze Moctezuma ) has leukemia and needs a new heart. She works with a crazed scientist named Dr. Krallman (Jose Elais Moreno) who wants to do a heart transplant with an ape. This leads the boy to turn into what would be an ape-man.
This was one of the Video Nasties so I thought I better track down a copy and check it out. Well it’s not that shocking but we do have some blood such footage of the heart surgery, heads getting ripped and knocked off, eye gouging, female wrestling, ripped blouses and over exposes ladies and some bad gorilla make up. The movie is a bit graphic and yet with the bad translations it was funny.
Rating: This film is great for a night of drinking and leaving the brain turned off. We have some serious gore, crazy monster make up and some exploitation as horror has it. We have blood and nudity what more do you want for a movie with lack of acting and poor storyline. Enjoy!
