Paula the ape woman (Acquanetta) is alive and well, and running around a creepy old sanitarium run by the kindly Dr. Fletcher (J. Carrol Naish), also reverting to her true gorilla form every once in a while to kill somebody. Written by

Dr. Fletcher, as long as you have elected to take the stand at this inquest, I again urge you to give us more information regarding the circumstances surrounding the death of the deceased. You are being of no help to us by your continued silence.

Jungle Woman is one of several ape woman movies made by Universal in the 1940's.
In this one, the ape woman, Paula is living in a sanatorium but the people there don't realise she is going out at night to kill people in her ape form. Her victims include a resident of the sanatorium, who first gets the blame for her previous victim.
This movie is creepy in parts and despite this, it is not the best of Universal's horrors made at this time.
The cast includes J Carrol Naish (The Monster Maker), Evelyn Ankers (The Ghost of Frankenstein), Acquanetta (The Lost Continant) and Milburn Stone (Invaders From Mars).
Though not brilliant, Jungle Woman is worth a look at.
Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
