You can't do that with gore fx!
12 September 2002 | by (hollywood, CA) – See all my reviews

The film is famous for the inserted open heart surgery as advertised on the video's case. Not being one to watch medical tapes I was floored by the real life gore of skin being peeled away and a torso being cut open with an electric tool!

There is only one scene of real surgery in the film and it lasts less than a few minutes. The rest of the movie is padded with musical numbers performed by artists I am not familiar with. There is an extended dancing stripper scene as well. Edits are well done. Frequently one scene blends to another. Example: A bloody bathtub cuts to a floor being painted by a nearly nude performance artist. Yes there are some killings by a paranoid psychotic and evil doings by the surgeon.

On the down side, the final action sequence is dark and it is unclear exactly what transpires. The back of the box tells the entire story of the film, including the conclusion.

Do not confuse this movie with the well loved "Night of the Bloody Apes", which also deals with heart transplants and shows real life footage of surgery (although not as gruesome as I can recall).
