Now we have a flesh eating tree
3 October 2005 | by (Derby, England) – See all my reviews

The 1950's produced almost everything in sci-fi/horror and The Womaneater is the one about the flesh eating tree. I quite liked this.

A mad scientist brings a flesh eating tree back from the Amazon that the natives used out there. This tree only eats women and he has to look round the local area for these. After it has eaten its "meal", the scientist then gets a serum and uses it to resurrect the dead. He employs a native to help him. The victims includes his housekeeper/lover and nearly her replacement too. The tree is burned at the end.

The cast includes Gorge Coulouris (Citizen Kane), Vera Day (Quatermass 2) and Robert MacKenzie (Feind Without a Face). With Jimmy Vaughn as the Native assistant.

If you wish to see another movie about a killer tree, take a look at From Hell It Came.

The Womaneater is a must see for all 1950's sci-fi fans. Great fun.

Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
