The Curious Dr. Humpp [DVD] [1967]

"Curious" can hardly describe this oddball disc of Argentinean director Emilio Vieyra's bizarre film. It is presented in full screen (standard) with an aspect ratio of 1.33:1 and the audio is Dolby Digital 2.0 Mono. The print itself has few flaws despite the fact that it is obviously a Z-grade flick. Additional features include an alternate title, which runs approximately nine minutes (the main difference is one of editing though and a great animated title sequence). There is a theatrical trailer for The Curious Dr. Humpp, as well as a trailer and two TV spots for Vieyra's The Deadly Organ. An animated slide show gallery of exploitation art is featured, with audio of "Horrorama Radio Spot Rarities." The disc is completed with the inclusion of two randy short films -- Rasputin and the Princess and The Girl and the Skelton -- as well as an early "rock video" of George McKelvey singing "My Teenage Fall Out Queen." A "sexy shocker from the vault" released by Something Weird Video, it will either amaze or repulse viewers!

Synopsis

Curious Dr. Humpp
Zombie-like creatures in dime-store rubber Halloween masks kidnap various sexy subjects and bring them to the island-based laboratory of the title mad doc, whose research on a youth-sustaining elixir is missing one crucial ingredient: a substance released into the human bloodstream during the act of sexual intercourse. No, really. One of Humpp's hapless victims is a goofball reporter who stumbles into the doc's hidden jungle lair and is forced to have group sex with countless nubile young ladies. After this heartless abuse, the hero still seeks escape -- which he does, thanks to the intrusion of a befuddled police squad, who manage to blast their way through the zombie guards. Fans of grindhouse sex-and-monsters-on-parade fare might get a giggle or two out of this painfully dated (and even more painfully dubbed) monstrosity, but it's no Kiss Me Quick!. ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi
