I remember Night of the Bloody Apes from video rental days (sheds sentimental tear). A doctor transplants the heart of a gorilla into his son's chest to save him from a disease, and guess what? His son Julio turns into a monkey-faced maniac who rampages the Mexican streets attacking people, especially voluptuous women. This film will satisfy even the most jaded sleazemonger, delivering some extreme (for the time) gore scenes and some nudity, and, of course, tons of ridiculous dubbed dialogue. Great party movie, especially considering you get (deep breath) Mexican lady wrestling as well! If that doesn't convince you, consider the fact that the heart transplant scenes feature actual surgery scenes inserted in a gratuitous, amateurish manner, and WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR??! GET IT!!!
Next, we are blessed with the black & white Feast of Flesh, another Mexican horror film clocking in at a tight 70 minutes. There's no wasted time here as a masked psycho tears the clothes off of women and stabs them with syringes. The hip young people in the film dance to cool tunes, wonder who the killer is, dance to cool tunes, go the beach, dance to cool tunes...at one point, right after finding a body, a couple says a couple worried lines about the killings, and the next second is TWISTIN' THE NIGHT AWAY TO COOL TUNES!!Read more ›
As a monkey-man Julio terrorizes the city, raping women and disemboweling men. Not a banana in sight, so blood and intestines will have to do. Giving in to the idea that all gorilla movies are spawned from King Kong, director Cardona deliberately carries out a similar fate and finale atop a lofty structure mid-city (sans the airplanes and helicopters - no money for that!). Julio the beast is brought down by gunfire, our heroine is returned safely to her boyfriend and all is well, the happiest of the happy.
Night of the Bloody Apes is less than compelling in the narrative department and even a might dull in places. The lengthy trailer would be plenty for most but I'm a glutton for punishment and only the full 84 minutes will suffice. While shoddy and ill-paced, `Apes attempts to make up for its short-comings by bombarding the viewer with its bevy of (un) redeemable qualities: gobs of make-shift gore, nudity and wrestling all interspersed with a deadpan delivery that approaches the surreal, perfect for those late night viewings, in a bewildering sort of way.Read more ›
This strange chain of events begins when Lucy Ossorio (Norman Lazareno), a masked female wrestler who dresses up like a devil throws her opponent out of the ring and into the hospital. Meanwhile, Dr. Krallman (José Elías Moreno) learns his son, Julio (Agustín Martínez Solares) is dying. So the doctor and his faithful servant, Goyo (Carlos López Moctezuma), steal a gorilla and perform the operation (be prepared to see a heart cut out of a chest; twice, actually).Read more ›
