Basically a softcore porn film, this early 70s Argentinian sci-fi horror film feels like an American sci-fi film from the 1950s: we have the mad scientist, the brain in the jar, the plot to change the evolution of humanity, etc. Unfortunately, the plot is severely hampered by the constant, fairly graphic sex scenes in which sex is creating energy that Dr. Humpp harnesses to prolong his life--the plot is really only marginally better than a real porn. Ultimately, The Curious Case of Dr. Humpp feels like a Jess Franco film without the style and general weirdness that makes those films more memorable.

I was disappointed by this film. The idea of an Argentinian horror flick was an engaging one- bound to be something different I thought. The main plotline is suitably absurd (mad brain in a jar etc), but the whole exercise is ruined by the softcore inserts which periodically appear. As such it is neither fish nor foul. The original film contains little nudity and is a standard B&W mad scientist effort. The softcore inserts have their attractions- but jar and should be in a different film altogether. As such I was just left baffled and confused. Basically the film doesnt work, but is an admirable novelity piece. At least "Something Weird" video do things differently
