A silly Universal B-horror film, that is 60+minutes of corn.

Audience Reviews for Captive Wild Woman


While rather idiotic in a lot of ways, it is much better than alot of movies of it's kind. You can tell Universal wanted to make this into a series and for this to be their female monster. While that didn't happen it look at times like they cared. Carradine and Ankers both turn in good genre performances and Acquanetta looks good at least. It isn't a classic, but it has it moments.
