cited as the roughest, most extreme of the Nazi Exploitation film (especially
after it was signaled out as a Video Nastie and banned in the UK), this
film is now finally available uncut. Meet the diabolical Dr Krast, a
sadistic female Nazi scientist who creates a barbaric sex-crazed Neanderthal
beast who feed upon the beautiful women tossed into his cage. The demented
doctor will stop at nothing to further her series of depraved experiments
on human guinea pigs.
of the actors were so horrified by the content of this film that they
opted to have their names removed from the credits. One of those was
Brad Harris [best known for many Historic actioners (e.g., FURY
OF HERCULES)]; he has the major role of rebel soldier Don Lorenzo
here, but didn't claim it. The same goes for Brigitte Skay who plays Irene.
Batzella is better known as a character actor. He has appeared in 30+
films, usually performing under his Paolo Solvay alias (i.e.,
playing a police investigator in both NIGHTS
OF VIOLENCE and BLOODSUCKER
LEADS THE DANCE). As a filmmaker, Luigi Batzella has directed
a dozen movies. He often used the Solvay pseudonym but sometimes he
signed the features as Paul Hamus, Dean Jones or - in this case - Ivan
Kathansky. In addition to BEAST IN HEAT film,
he is best known for SLAUGHTER
OF THE VAMPIRES and NUDE
FOR SATAN. Mr Batzella died from Parkinson's Disease in November
2008 at age 84.
