Bit of a mess, this. But where to start? Let's start positively - Regina Torne is a very striking looking women, I see she had a considerable film career in Mexico and made 9 films in the same year as this little number. Its not saying a lot, of course, but she does give a better performance than the hammy John Carradine, who made several films in Mexico at this time, maybe because he couldn't find his way home. There is a daft mad scientist theme here and a female killer theme. Supposedly linked but I'm not convinced, the early scenes with Ms Torne donning the leather gloves and doing a giallo, are promising but in the end she seems overcome with Carradine's over acting and this whole thing ends in farce. I feel I should also point out that this film has the dullest, most drawn out sequences of poor fashion shows I've ever seen. The costumes, the girls, the mannerisms - agh!
