Hal Moffat who is taking wholesale revenge by murdering those he holds responsible for his predicament, is befriended by Helen Paige, a blind piano teacher, and he develops a warmth for her that leads him to add thievery and robbery - no big deal, he is out there anyway - to his murders so that she can be provided with the money for an operation.

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.
