The Ape

The Ape

Movie: The Ape
Director: William Nigh
Produced by: Monogram
Released By: Monogram
MPAA Rating:

This painfully-bad Monogram feature wastes the talents of two of horrordom’s finest — star Boris Karloff and co-writer Curt Siodmak. The goofy plot involves the efforts of one Dr. Adrian to procure human spinal fluid for his polio-vaccine research by donning the pelt of a slain circus ape and slaughtering innocent people. The fact that he’s snapping spines in the interest of medicine doesn’t really help to clear the moral waters. Filmed during a particularly grueling year for Karloff, this marks the end of his lengthy stir with Monogram. Without Karloff to kick around, the studio concentrated their humiliating efforts on Bela Lugosi, who appeared in a virtual remake, The Ape Man, three years later.
