Don't toy with God's will, Dr. Blood!
20 May 2003 | by (Ohio, USA) – See all my reviews

Dr. Peter Blood (Kieron Moore) shows up in a small Cornish village to move in with his father (Ian Hunter) to carry on with the old man's experiments. Maddened by his ambition and arrogance, Peter paralyzes unwilling victims with curare (African arrow poison) until their still-beating hearts can be removed and transplanted into other bodies. Will his new widowed nurse girlfriend Linda Parker (Hazel Court, as always, a strong female lead) catch on before it's too late?

Saddled with a very implausible plot and pretty minor compared to some concurrent Corman and Hammer films, this still has good acting, nice location filming, atmosphere and a decent surprise ending.
