The mother of all Mexploitation finally arrives in the UK uncut for the very first time!
Featured on the Director of Public Prosecution's original 39-title 'video nasties' list, at last you can see what all the fuss is about in this gorgeous new 16:9 transfer. Rene Cardona Sr - patriarch of Mexico's number one genre film-making dynasty - delivers this wonderfully silly tale of a dying young man given the heart of a gorilla to keep him alive. Unfortunately the man transforms into a murderous ape-like monster and goes on a girly hunt. Not one to be put-off, the surgeon (his father) tries again - this time with the heart of a female wrestler. This medical-horror-sci-fi masterpiece was written by René and his son Rene (who, incidentally, had a son called Rene), neither of whom had even a cursory knowledge of either medicine or science. This makes it w-a-a-y-yy more enjoyable... No surprise then that this was filmed in just three weeks (in May 1968), largely in Mexico City's Chapultepec Park. While already chock full of gratuitous nudity and femmes-in-peril, US film-maker Jerald Intrator ("Orgy at Lil's Place", "Satan in High Heels") decided to improve on things by adding close-up, super-gory footage of open-heart surgery. He even filmed some new material to spice up the monster's attacks with sanguinary make-up effects and even more nudity. He did the same thing.
