Enter the wacky, tacky world of Ed Wood!
3 February 2003 | by (Louisville) – See all my reviews

James T Craig plays the hotheaded rocket scientest/madman who mixes a venus flytrap with a carnivorous undersea plant only to create a man in a rubber suit with green dreadlocks in this goofy throw-back to the fifties! With nudity so gratuitous it borders on dadaism!

Wood himself was directing Rick Lutz and Rene Bond in pornos at the time, making this a special treat. More than any other movie not directed by him, this production seems guided by his hand. One wonders if the use jarring library music and lots of stock footage was written into the script. A must!

(AKA: Venus Flytrap)
