Beginning with a baton twirling scene by a vacuous majorette (old fashioned word), to the terror they experience when they encounter a couple guys in the woods. The boy gets shot and his little cheerleader disappears in her short little skirt. So there's a missing person. Would one not immediately assume that a couple of bad boys got her. No, the sheriff immediately names a scientist from the Nazis during the war who made people old. There is absolutely no evidence to bring about this theory. None! Of course, when our hero investigates with the baton twirler's sister, that's the only conclusion available. And, doggone it, they're absolutely right. The acting is horrible. The girl they are searching for has one of the worst voices I've ever heard on film. Her sister is a two bit lounge singer with a bad singing voice (according to the emcee, she has won two gold records. Perhaps in those days, they were found in a Cracker Jacks box. There are long explanations made by the mad professor for some reason, including how his evil machine works. Then there is the strangulation scene where an Egyptian girl is being strangled while the sister sits and watches doing nothing to save her. This film is so dumb and yet one can't help watching it. It also may have the best rant since "Plan 9 from Outer Space."
