One of the horror movies banned in the UK during the "video nasty" craze of the 1980s. It was passed with one minute and 41 seconds of cuts in 1994. See more »
Professor Nugent's face is bandaged in the opening sequence, and the rest of the movie is a flashback to how his face became mutilated. In the beginning scenes, his face is bandaged so that the entire upper half of his face looks normal. However, when we see the actual incident where his face gets burned, his entire face is burned to the point of causing death by trauma and dehydration. See more »
I burned him. I burned him because he killed my baby. And to save its father.

The film was listed on the UK DPP 72 list of video nasties, and the 1994 Vipco video release was heavily cut by 1 min 41 secs by the BBFC to remove nearly all scenes of graphic violence including an arm removal, the castration of the cyclist, shots of disembowelment and bloody wounds, and a man's face being burnt on a stove. The later Vipco DVD release featured the same cut print. See more »
I'm not even sure whether I like this movie or not. It's just flat out bizarre. It's also extremely disturbing in several parts.
First of all, the movie was made in 1980, but it looks like a mid- 1970's film. There are a lot of landscape shots with 1970's-style Chicago-esque/smooth jazz/rock music playing in the background. Everyone is wearing flannel shirts for some reason. The dialog is really boring and drawn out.
But beyond all that, Bigfoot is definitely the star of the show and allows the film to entice you to finish the movie. The gore and kills are really good for the time.
There's some really disturbing scenes which went a little too far though. Some guy's dick gets ripped off and you actually SEE it... In another scene "Wanda" is on her porch getting whipped by her father for some stupid reason. Then at one point during Wanda's flashback, the movie gets VERY preachy. There's a shot in Wanda's bedroom where it just shows a bunch of pictures of Jesus Christ, the cross and Holy Mary, with like church music playing in the background. O.o For some reason, this part of the movie feels like you're no longer in the year 1980, but more like the late 1800's- early 1900's...
Then Bigfoot comes and rapes Wanda! Why? I don't know... Her father doesn't do anything, he's just like "You deserve it!" O.O
Then later, Wanda gives birth to a log of moving feces....... Literally... That's what it looked like. =w=
Anyway, I won't tell the rest of what happens... It's really strange... Like I said, I don't know whether I like it or not. I guess it's passable for the super low budget it likely had. It was able to keep me watching it till the end... o-o
