This is a fast-paced, gory, bizarre Jess Franco movie with a great exploitation cast including:

* Helmut Berger
* Brigitte Lahaie
* Telly Savalas (!) - looking weak and puffy
* Chris Mitchum (!) - looking a lot like his father
* Caroline Munro
* Anton Diffring
* Howard Vernon - as "Dr. Orloff"!

The plot is very familiar - a surgeon and his sexy assistant kidnap beautiful women so they can use the womens' skin to restore the acid-scarred face of the surgeon's sister.  What makes this more interesting than most are the cast and the over-the-top gore scenes.  Not to mention several hot women.  My favorite scenes include:

* Faces being peeled off in graphic surgery scenes
* A woman getting a syringe plunged into her eyeball in extreme close-up
* A woman getting a power drill pushed through her forehead
* A guy getting a pair off scissors rammed through his throat
* A guy decapitating a woman with a chainsaw and then kissing her head (the head shows up later covered with maggotts)

This is an exploitation shocker that should bring a smile to your face.  The DVD-R I bought from Super strange video is a sharp, beautiful widescreen print.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
