Released in “Bloody Panic Color”, The Beast That Killed Women contains some of the worst acting you’ll ever have to endure and a script so badly planned that the author even neglects to give the lead protagonists names.
Exploitation veteran Barry Mahon clearly had little idea what he was doing here, resulting in a laughably awful attempt to fuse the clichés of the nudist movie with the mad-gorilla-on-the-loose plot.
There’s some nonsense about Delores Carlos persuading her husband Byron Mabe to give the naturist lifestyle a try which is just to justify the film as a sort of exposé of the nudist scene (in this case, in sun-bleached Miami).
Unfortunately, the nudist camp is invaded by a gorilla with an appetite for the ladies. The gorilla is a ratty, moth-eaten specimen that one character in the film describes as looking like “some guy in a monkey suit!” which is what it so obviously is.
Murder and panic quickly spread before a pretty policewoman (Juliet Anderson) volunteers to enter the camp as ape bait.
The American nudie films of the 1960s were even more sexless than the mostly dreadful British sex comedies of the 1970s. This one is not even bad enough to be enjoyable.
It’s only an hour long, but it’s still boring and ultimately pointless.
