|This movie is everywhere! Not only is it a psycho-doctor movie, it's also cannibal movie and a zombie movie! At the outset, it seems that somebody is sawing up corpses at the hospital where Dr. Lorrie works. The culprit is a cannibal from the island of Keeto in the far off land of Mulatto. Dr. Lorrie, Dr. Chandler, George, and Susan set off to meet with Dr. O'Brero, who lives on Keeto. The movie really picks up at this point, with the cannibals killing and devouring people left and right, much to Dr. Chandler's annoyance. He's annoyed at the people who get eaten, I mean, not the cannibals. The group also runs into some zombies. Turns out that Dr. O'Brero is actually Dr. Butcher! He's been bringing the dead back to life on Keeto for years. He transplants Susan's brain into a man's body and creates a transsexual zombie! Dr. Lorrie brings the cannibals under her control and everything ends ambiguously. All in all, I loved this movie. Around the thirty minute mark or so, the action is almost nonstop with somebody getting cannibalized (or worse) every five minutes. The gore is of the highest quality and is portrayed very well. All this is highlighted by what appears to be actual tropical locations (in most scenes). This movie must be seen in its unrated format to be appreciated, though.|
