Critic Reviews for The Manster

All Critics (3)

Raw greatness that refuses to be contained by mediocre skin.

Full Review… | October 9, 2011

A different kind of horror film; a Japanese-American co-production that works in spurts.

Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

Strange, sometimes amusing sci-fi horror.

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.

For a B movie, The Manster was not half bad thanks to the nice special make up, but it still didn't fail to bore me to death.

Pretty silly, and awful, horror monster flick. The monster is so poorly done, it sure doesn?t produce any scares. Poor score, seems more suited to a spaceship kind of film.
