A Low-Budget, Grade-B Film from Days Gone By
27 May 2015 | by Uriah43See all my reviews

Believing that a tribe deep in the African jungle has gold a ruthless woman by the name of "Marilyn Blanchard" (Marla English) and her boyfriend "Rick Brady" (Lance Fuller) manage to manipulate a guide named "Ted Bronson" (Mike Connors) to take them to this village. What none of them realize is that there is a mad scientist named "Dr. Roland Gerard" (Tom Conway) who has been staying there and learning the black arts which he hopes to combine with western science in order to transform a female into a monster he can control with the power of his mind. Now rather than reveal any more of this movie and risk spoiling it for those who haven't seen it I will just say that this is clearly a low-budget, grade-B film from days gone by which most people probably won't like or appreciate. However, to suggest that this is one of the worst films ever made is probably a bit of a stretch too. In any case, having grown up with movies like this in my early years I personally didn't think it was that bad and for that reason I have rated it as about average.
