Panic and fear strike the hearts of the carefree sunbathers in a once peaceful and popular nudist resort in sun-bleached Miami, when a mysterious, yet menacing intruder manages to find his way in the camp. Inconspicuously, taking cover in the thick foliage and hiding effortlessly in the pitch-black and almost shapeless shadows, the grotesque and powerful perpetrator will eventually kidnap a helpless woman in the still of the night, and after a brief fight, he will pitilessly take her life. Could a sex maniac be responsible for the poor woman's gruesome death? As the Miami Police launch a full investigation, taking into account a lucky survivor's statement while the killer is still on the loose, the terrorised sun-kissed nudist girls will keep on screaming for help during the nights. How could one lure the blood-stained adversary out of his hideaway? Written by Nick Riganas

User Reviews

Utterly terrible with few amusing moments.
17 August 2008 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

Delores Carlos and Byron Mabe play a couple,who is visiting a Miami nudist camp.Unfortunately for them an escaped gorilla chooses to show up on grounds of camp and start killing female nudists,one woman to be precise.How the beast in gorilla suit escaped or why it's attacking nudists in their grass huts at night is never explained though we're given a soundless scene near the end of the film where the cops arrest an unnamed woman with a large cage in her home.I have seen my share of bad horror movies and "The Beast That Killed Women" is no exception.It has tons of naked flesh,but no full-frontal nudity.The acting is terrible,the plot is extremely dull and the beast looks laughable.Still the scenes with gorilla are strangely amusing.3 out of 10.
