When a very old African woman offers an ambitious endocrinologist the secret of eternal youth, he decides to take his estranged and no-longer-young-and-beautiful wife along with him on the safari. But then she finds out the true reason for their sudden reconciliation is so that she can serve as his guinea pig. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, especially one with a stolen pineal gland tapper. But once you try Nipe, there's no going back. Written by
This film has two chief assets: an excellent performance by Colleen Gray and Bud Westmore's expert makeup. The script, though, leaves a lot to be desired. It's on the dull side and there is very little excitement or chills. It just drags along. Grant Williams, here in a supporting part, is bland as usual. And when Phillip Terry, who plays the lousy husband/doctor, dies, I cheered! Of course the story is unbelievable. That's why they call it science FICTION. A lot promised but little delivered. But see it for Colleen Gray and some convincing old/young makeup.
