EMERGENCY!!! Film in critical condition!

3/10
Author: Jason C. Atwood from Suffolk, Virginia

Another discovery in lost Z-grade material! It's been a while since I saw the thing, but my memories remain intact! Forget the title! What you are about to see is actual filmed footage of bad production values shot on camera, circa 1968! The victim, known as THE TRANSPLANT, is sent via helicopter to Bad Movie Institute Of NYC, where historians and professors examined something inside the negative that plagued it in years past. They found a scene where doctors performed surgery on a fake heart, a silly old prop. Another discovery on the negative was the appearance of a scantily-clad chick making an entry to the tub. Unfortunately, they could not find a cure in time for this diseased-stricken entity. It was later pronounced D.O.A.

It's enough to make you sing "Weep Not For You.....Weep Not For Me" with glee over and over again.

You can't do that with gore fx!

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).
