The plots silly enough: Doctor Nolter (Donald Pleasance) is a leading Biochemist, his theories on mutations are disturbing to say the least. How he is attempting to put his theories into practice however is all the more frightening. Aided by a deformed “freak show” owner, Mr. Lynch (Tom Baker) he is attempting to create a half man- half plant creature, using students from the university where he teaches as his subjects…
There’s a very 1970’s feel to the film, that adds immensely to the strange dreamlike quality of some of the sequences. A character at one tells a story about when her friend had an acid trip and I wonder if that was the kind of feel intended by the Director. It seems like a good way to justify the scene where one of our teenage hero’s is chased through a foggy park by two midgets to a strange discordant soundtrack of out of key guitar notes and random saxophone blasts.
