Professor Charles Conway is a mad scientist attempting to develop the proverbial fountain of youth by creating "the 17th gland". Ignoring all aspects of scientific ethics, his research subjects are people who have no family and are under the impression that the doctor can cure their depression. However, his research hasn't been successful and his subjects are turned into grotesque zombies. Some of Conway's patients begin to catch on to his scheme and intend to stop him. Written by

The Lobo character here (who can speak) was created by writers Mann and Black. He is a different character than the mute Lobo created by Ed Wood Jr. in "Bride of the Monster" and "Night of the Ghouls". Screenwriter Jane Mann was the wife of director Boris Petroff. See more »
When Danny Green is apparently shot by Lobo in the stomach, there doesn't seem to be any sign of injury or blood. See more »
More fun than a cellarful of monkeys. Carradine goes over the top as the haughty, flawed (mad) scientist. Tor Johnson is Lobo is Tor... proving his bad acting in "Plan 9" and "Bride of the Monster" was his own idea, not Ed Wood's. The three female leads are all famous beauties - Dr. Gilchrist was Miss America in 1946, Natalie was Playboy's Playmate of the Month in 1957 (the year this film was released), and B-movie giant Allison Hayes adds a sultry touch. Unfortunately, almost everyone in this film is INSANE.
