A howler from Ed Wood, who brought us PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE and consistently reached astonishing new lows in film-making. The grim story of a madman who puts a giant rubbery octopus in a local streambed gives Lugosi full artistic reign. Great supporting cast includes Tor Johnson as "Lobo," Lugosi's musclebound Swedish bodyguard.
A mad scientist attempts to develop a species of superhumans by using atomic energy. With twelve men missing, the police are hot on the tail of the scientist, who also kidnaps a nosy female reporter to make her the "bride of the atom."
