Description by OLDIES.com:
A revenge tale of 'B' Proportions, The Brute Man is the story of Hal Moffat, a college student who is horribly disfigured in a laboratory accident. Years later, he returns to punish those responsible for his hideous fate.
Rondo Hatton, the featured brute of more than a dozen Hollywood films, plays Moffat after his accident. Jane Adams portrays Helen, a blind piano teacher who falls for the man inside the brute, while nightly the crazed Moffat seeks out his victims to make them pay for the past and steals cash and jewels to pay for an operation that will restore Helen's sight.
Helmed by veteran 'B' movie director Jean Yarbrough (She-Wolf of London), The Brute Man was sadly Hatton's last role as he passed away several months before the film's release. Also starring are Tom Neal and Jan Wiley as Moffat's potential victims and Peter Whitney as the dauntless police detective determined to end the carnage.
Will the police be able to stop The Creeper before he kills again? Will Helen regain her vision? Turn down the lights and follow a maniac with blood on his hands and murder on his mind. But don't forget to lock your doors!
- The once-handsome Rondo Hatton, star of "The Brute Man", was diagnosed with acromegaly in his early twenties -- a disease that causes gross disfigurement by enlarging the bones in the face, hands, and feet. Hatton died before the release of "The Brute Man," the last in a series of B-movie roles as monsters and heavies.
