CORRUPTION (1968)


#62 is the Grindhouse Releasing uncut blu-Ray of Corruption (1968). This one is lurid and looney in Swinging London of the 60s as surgeon Peter Cushing accidentally causes his fiancé's wife (Sue Lloyd) to be burned badly by a floodlight. She doesn't wanna live without her beauty so he experiments with a pituitary gland from a recently deceased woman and a radical operation - and it works! She has her beauty back! And they live happily after NOT! The operation doesn't last and Cushing is forced into desperate measures - mainly finding young women and helping them "donate" their pituitary gland to make his fiancé purty again. Not terribly surprising but there is a wild ending involving a gang of young thugs looking to rob their seaside cottage and an out-of-control laser! I can't tell anyone that they should see this but it is quite amusing that every time horror vet Cushing starts wrestling with anyone, his hair tends to stick straight up in the air like Coolio.
