Somewhere deep in Africa: Because ruthless Marilyn (Marla English) & her partner Keith (Lance Fuller) have learned that rich businessman Harry (Norman Willis) is looking for something really valuable in the jungle (they don't care too much what it actually might be), they kill him & Keith assumes his place for the guide Ted Bronson (Touch Connors) who arrives the next day.

The enxt day it's off to the njungle for Marilyn, Keith & Ted, & despite Marilyn making definite amourous advances & even offers to cut him in when they find whatever-it-is, Ted smells something fishy.

In a nearby native village mad scientist doctor Gerard (Tom Conway) conducts experiments to turn humans into bloodthirsty monsters (why I don't know) using the voodoo the local witchdoctor Chaka (Martin Wilkins) does readily provide ... & Gerard even succeeds in turning a native girl, Zuranda (Jean Davis) into a monster(then played by Paul Blaisdell) he can telepathically control, however when he orders her to kill the white people that are approaching (that being Ted, Marilyn & Keith) she just won't do it, as it is something she wouldn't do in her human form either, instead she turns back nto innocent Zuranda, & Gerard sends her off, having no use for a monster that doesn't kill. Keith however, when he sees the innocent native girl wandering the jungle on her own, immediately rapes & kills her.

The next day, Gerard, Chaka & his natives show up at the white men's camp, & they want revenge for the killed girl, exacted by one of the group. Marilyn, hearing that, & having learned that there is a big treasure in Chaka's camp, shows no hesitation & shoots Keith dead. Gerard is imediately enchanted by the ruthless girl, as he figures she will make a far better monster than Zuranda, since she's a natural killer, & he invites her to come stay at his house - which she, blinded by the gold gladly accepts. Ted he puts under the guard of his bodyguard Gandor (Emmett Smith), who also keeps an eye on Gerards lovely wife Susan (Mary Ellen Kaye), who's scared half stiff about his experiments & her only thought is to get away. Soon, Susan & ted team up to make a getaway, but they have little time since Ted is to be sacrificed the very next day, & when Gerard learns of his wife's escape plans, he offers her as another sacrifice to Chaka, too. In his lab meanwhile he's pretty happy making greedy Marilyn his bloodthirsty pet-monster, but then things get a little out of hand when the native decide they need a third sacrifice - besides Susan & Ted - for their ceremony ... & that would be doc Gerard himself.

The good doctor is understandably miffed & orders his monster to kill quite a lagrge portion of the native population including Chaka, but then the Marilyn-monster finds out the gold she so sought is actually just painted clay, & she kills Gerard as well while she's at it. It is only then she turns back to her human self ... & wouldn't you know it, she finds the one true gold idol of the whole village, conveniently placed besides a sulfur pit (don't ask), but when she wants to pick it up, she stumbles & falls into the pit ...

Oh, & in case you wondered, Susan & Ted got back to civilisation safely.

 

Pretty shoddy little jungle pic that had a way too low budget to create a convincing jungle set - let alone a good monster ... but these inefficiencies might only add to the charm of the film that has a very silly story told in a pretty stupid way, never attempting to be more than a little drive-in horror film. & the weird performance of Tom Conway as mad scientist is just a hoot to watch.
