A mad scientist (and apparent former Nazi) unleashes his master plan: to transform himself into a mutated walking catfish, gain revenge on those who have spurned him, and kidnap nubile young women to similarly transform so that he can breed. Or something like that.Written by
The orchestral music score occasionally heard during the movie is actually an old stock film score. It's been featured in such B horror films as "The Brain That Wouldn't Die" and, most curiously, a news reel segment about the Palm Sunday tornado outbreak in 1965. See more »

For its 1999 airing on Mystery Science Theater 3000, Zaat (shown under the title Blood Waters of Dr. Z) was heavily edited. Among the numerous scenes cut were further scenes of the INPIT agents, Dr. Leopold disposing of his victim in a vat of acid, scenes of the locals evacuating, and one bizarre scene where a band of singing hippies is taken to the jail by the Sheriff.

A lot of people say, "What's that?" It's Zaat.
I can't believe how much this movie filled the depths of my inner being. I picked up a copy of this movie at a local video store, thinking it would be a good laugh, but boy, was I wrong! Marshall Grauer delivers superbly the role of the classic mad scientist, but he gives it an extra zing that I can't explain-you have to see the movie yourself. Don't let me forget Wade Popwell, whose portrayal of the Monster left me without disappointment. You can keep your "Titanic"s and your "Eegah"s; give me Zaat. I give this movie thirteen stars, on a scale of ten, for the superb cinematography, special effects, and an unbeatable supporting cast led by Paul Galloway and Gerald Cruse. Move over, "The Godfather", here comes Zaat.
