Editorial Reviews

Night of the Bloody Apes (1972, 84 min.) - It's a sex-crazed monkey man looking for love! Informed that son Julio will die of heart disease, Dr. Krellman does what any good mad doctor would do: give Julio the heart of a gorilla. Oops. Somehow the frail young man turns into a "horrible half beast, half man" with a muscleman's body and a monkey's face (sort of), embarking on a hilarious frenzy of over-the-top gore and gratuitous nudity as he attacks women and mutilates men. Daddy then surgically swaps Julio's simian heart with one taken from, yes, a female wrestler. Double oops. With eye-popping footage of an open-heart surgery and periodic wallowing in women's wrestling, "Night of the Bloody Apes" is a cockamamie cult fave so berserk it's brilliant. "Feast of Flesh" (1967, 70 min.) - A crackpot sadist with a monster mask and claws stabs people with syringes and transforms women into zonked-out love slaves, making the swingers of a South American beach resort into his very own Feast of Flesh. Also known as "The Deadly Organ," it's more twisted madness from the director of "The Curious Dr. Humpp!"

Chiller Theatre and Something Weird video got together to do this kick-butt combo of two absurd Mexican horror movies from the late 60's. Both are very low-budget campfests with moments of brutality and weirdness that will appeal to depraved horror addicts like myself.

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 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!!

Night of the Bloody Apes is a ham-fistedly made concoction of sex, wrestling, gorillas and gore with footage of actual open-heart surgery tossed in for good measure. Making a long story short, Dr. Krellman replaces the bad heart of his son Julio with that of a gorilla. The primate's heart proves to be too "powerful" and transforms our boy into a rampaging ape-like thing. The good doctor, realizing his folly, then replaces the damnable organ with the heart of a female masked wrestler. I had high hopes at this point that Julio would change into a transgender-masked-wrestling-ape-like thing, but regrettably we only get to look at the silly chimp get-up some 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.

This Something Weird double feature asks a question that has troubled science for some time: if you were to take the heart of a gorilla and transplant it into the heart of a young man suffering from leukemia what would happen? (a) He would lead a normal, productive life; (b) He would die because of tissue incompatibility; (c) He would suffer severe brain damage because the transplanted heart would not be up to the task; or (d) He would become a monster who kills men and rips the clothes off of women. If you said (d) you would be correct, especially if you explained that because the gorilla's heart was so strong if would cause a transformation whereby the young man's head would become ape like while the rest of him still looked human, but really bulked up (which would facilitate the aforementioned killing and ripping). Anyhow, that is the "science" behind the 1968 Mexican flick "Night of the Bloody Apes" ("La Horripilante bestia humana," which would be "The Grisly Human Beast" instead of "La noche de los Monos Sangrientos") although, to be perfectly clear, there is only one ape who over several nights makes a lot of other people bloody (we know this will be film with lots of blood because red paint is poured throughout the opening credits).

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).
