The Manster Details


Manster is a favorite among campy horror aficionados and for good reason as it is both unintentionally funny and genuinely creepy. A "Manster" is half-man, half-monster. To accommodate this set-up, the title character has two heads. Back in his single-domed days, the Manster was an American reporter ([[Performer~P20912~Peter Dyneley~peterdyneley]]) assigned to interview a Tokyo-based scientist ([[Performer~P51784~Satoshi Nakamura~satoshinakamura]]). Alas, the scientist was off his rocker, and while experimenting with mutations, he turned the reporter into a double-header. Wait till you see the climax, with the hero battling himself on the edge of a live volcano. Though filmed in Japan, The Manster was based on a script by British producer [[Performer~P82884~George Breakston~georgebreakston]], and acted (if that is the word) entirely in English. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
