Rondo Hatton, who played the monstrous Creeper in this film and in House of Horrors (1946), was actually handsome as a young man, but later in life became disfigured by acromegaly, a form of gigantism brought about by unnaturally high levels of human growth hormone produced by a disease of the pituitary gland.

For such a low budget movie and from PRC as well, The Brute Man is quite good.
As a result of an experiment going wrong at university, Hal Moffat becomes disfigured and some years later, starts killing people. His victims include a grocer's delivery boy and a jeweller. He makes friends with a blind woman but nearly kills her after shopping him to the police and is arrested in her home after she set him up.
The Brute Man is shot well in black and white and is certainly one of the better efforts from PRC.
I've never heard of any of the cast in this, with Rondo Hatton in the title role.
This is worth checking out. A good way to spend an hour one afternoon or evening.
Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
