Students have been going missing from the local college, and the one person who knows what's happened to them is Dr. Noller, a rogue biologist. Not satisfied with the pace of natural selection in driving evolution, Noller wants to push things further by creating his own genetically engineered creations. Having already created some amazing specimins by mixing the DNA of plants and animals, the doctor has now set his sights higher, and want to work on modifying humans, as well. Written by

According to Tom Baker, while filming he and Willie Ingram, who went by the stage name "Popeye" for his strange ability to make his eyes pop far out of their sockets, used to frequent a bar across the street between shooting scenes. During one such outing a waitress made it clear through her attitude that she didn't approve of Baker, who is white, being friends with Ingram who is black. So to get back at her Ingram would make his eyes pop out when she would pass the table causing her to completely freak out, and then go back to normal while he and Baker would pretend nothing happened as she tried to point it out to other waitresses and patrons.

"You may think you're normal. But you're all a product of mutations. Your ancestors, our ancestors were freaks"
A traveling family of freaks, a crazy scientist with strange plant fixations, a deformed man who refuses to accept himself, a possible protagonist who is suddenly doomed, and one of the most original monster designs I have ever seen. All of these elements clump together rather crudely to form this bizarre, low budget horror that I really enjoyed for some reason -I partially blame the beautiful Julie Ege and Donald Pleasence-. It's creepy, campy and even sad in some parts, not to mention the crazy evolutionary ideas that it toys around with.
