I was fortunate enough to be invited to the Grand Premiere of this film at Anthology Film Archives in NYC. I felt that the spirit of Dr. Goldfoot was alive and well, for one can find kooky monsters, incredibly wacky special effects and a plethora of jiggling girls for all to enjoy.
I felt that every single one of my senses was assaulted by this film; and I mean that in a good way. In many ways I was kicked in the head, forced to smell the proverbial slab of limberger and forced to cry tears of pain and pleasure by every frame of this warped masterpiece. I won't give away the plot, but it is a definite, heartfelt homage to such 1960's classics as 'Mad Monster Party,' 'Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine,' and Elvis' greatest masterpiece, 'Clambake'! Well worth seeing!
Especially brilliant is the set design and use of models as exteriors The laboratory scenes themselves are funky and otherworldly, much in the style of the old Hammer films of the 50's and 60's. It's very hard to actually classify this in one specific genre, but any classification would simply not do it justice. It is unique in itself.
I must also stress that all the actresses deliver great tongue-in-cheek performances (exceptional jiggling), but it is Andy Roussin as the manservant Gomar who steals the film!!!
