Movie Info

The Mexican horrorama Man and the Monster is yet another wrinkle on the Faust story. A concert pianist, desirous of international fame, sells his soul to the devil. Satan's price: whenever the pianist plays a particular selection, he turns into a monster. After a string of brutal murders perpetrated by this musical Jekyll/Hyde, he is foiled by a quickwitted concert master. When the orchestra strikes up the fatal tune, the pianist goes through his slavering metamorphosis before a packed audience, who presumably spend the rest of the evening paging through their programs to see if the monster is a hitherto unannounced guest artist. Abel Salazer produced, wrote and starred in Man and the Monster, which was originally titled El Hombre Y El Monstruo. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

  • Fine technical craftsmanship and solid performances fight a losing battle with rampant stupidity in this entertaining Mexican horror film, which is alternately atmospheric and silly.

Audience Reviews for Hombre y el monstruo (The Man and the Monster)


Another Mexican Horror release from Casanegra Ent , which has a good collection of Mexican Horror. At first I thought our Monster was a werewolf, but the more I think about it the more we have a Mexican Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. When you see the monster you will know what I mean. As with all Mexican Horror I have seen to date, its very entertaining, and the best actor in most of the Casanegra Ent films has to be Abel Salazar, he is very comical. This is a good Friday Night Popcorn Film. I have to give it 4 stars
