Audience Reviews for The Manster

A mad scientist corrupts a foreign correspondent in Tokyo, eventually turning him into a monster---I mean, a MANster. Silly title, silly film, but it does have an exotic psychotronic atmosphere, with transformations, geishas, infidelity, theremins, hyperactive overacting, and an erupting volcano. Incredibly, this schlock originally played on a double bill with the surreal horror masterpiece EYES WITHOUT A FACE.
