Product Description

THE APE MAN is exactly the kind of B-movie you'd expect, given that it stars Bela Lugosi, it was released in 1943 and it has the title "THE APE MAN". The film gets right to the point and as our story begins, Bela Lugosi has already accidentally transformed himself into a half-man, half-ape creature. Despite opportunities, no explanation is given as to why mad scientist Lugosi and his mad scientist buddy are involved in such ape experiments. Oftentimes these types of films will give their mad scientist a philanthropic motive: he'll want to find a cure for polio or discover the secret of immortality. Here, however, the point of the experiment seems to be injecting people with ape juice solely for the purpose of becoming apes. The only line of explanation is simply that the experiment worked "too well", leaving him unable to transform back into a man.
