The Neanderthal Man (1953)

Director: Ewald André Dupont

Stars: Robert Shayne, Joyce Terry, Richard Crane

A mad scientist creates a serum and transforms himself into a violent caveman, his cat into a saber-toothed tiger, and his housekeeper into Ape Woman.

I love all of these cheesy horror movies from the 50's. This was the decade for indie horror movie. If you had an idea for a horror movie, you could get it made. It was an almost anything goes for horror.

The story is pretty simple. It is the same storyline and plots for all of these movies. The make-up work is a bad mask/headpiece that the actor is wearing. The mask/monster looks bad, but for a movie like, this it works. There is hardly, if any blood or gore in this movie at all.

This is more or less a movie for the whole family. I love these types of movie. It is where horror really started and came from. I think you should give this movie a chance, especially if you like the older horror movies. Enjoy.
