In Argentina our first feature was called La venganza del sexo but here in the US it goes by The Curious Dr Humpp. It's a 1967 film and it's surprisingly packed with bare naked boobs and butts. As the movie opens an ugly man like creature shambles about kidnapping people. He brings them to Dr Humpp who lives in a big mansion. The Doc pumps the victims full of drugs to control their minds. He then gives them an aphrodisiac and they hump like bunnies. He's got a big collection of people, some hippies, a couple of lesbians and pair of couples that he keeps going and going and going. When they've been at it for a while Dr Humpp extracts some fluid from them. He needs whatever it is to keep himself alive. He'd been experimented on by a scientist that now resides in Humpp's lab. He's directing Humpp in his experiments. He can't physically help because of his handicap. You'll have to guess what the handicap is or watch the movie at the link above.
That's the Doc on the upper left and his henchman on the upper right. The other picture on the left is of the hero and heroine. He's a reporter and she's a stripper. She's kidnapped and the reporter joins up with the cops to look for her. The reporter gets kidnapped by Dr Humpp and has to figure out how to get away and save the other victims. It's mostly an entertaining movie. There's a typical 1950's horror plot with the mad scientist, his disfigured henchman, and their naughty plans. The cops and the reporter save the girl and things have a fairly happy ending. In fact the film is filled with happy endings. Glad to have seen it but I wouldn't bother picking one up.
The Fly was our second feature, it's the original 1958 film with Vincent Price, and we watched the BluRay. The movie was written by James Clavell and directed by Kurt Neumann. Clavell would go on to write some best selling novels that I never read. He also wrote and directed films, you might have seen The Great Escape or To Sir With Love. Neumann directed some Tarzan films, Rocketship X-M, Kronos and the 1958 Machete.
Vincent plays a businessman with an electronics company in Montreal. His brother, David Hedison under the name Al Hedison, is a scientist who works in his basement lab. David's wife, played by Patricia Owens, comes over to Vincent's house with a harrowing tale. She's murdered David, stamped his head and arm flat in a hydraulic press. Vincent calls the police and they send an Inspector, played by Herbert Marshall, who can't believe the story Patricia tells. Who would? Even when the truth comes out, they have to lie to the rest of the world.
It's an entertaining film that I've seen several times over the years. I have a DVD with the sequel that I should get out. There's a third sequel that is ok but not as good as the first movie. The 1986 Cronenberg film isn't one that I found I liked to re-watch all that much.
