A woman doctor keeps a strange ape creature in a secret laboratory in her house. When she dies at its hands, the house goes to a newlywed couple, who don’t know the creature is still loose.

I found this creaky all-black horror movie to be surprisingly enjoyable; especially interesting are the surprisingly good performances by the monster (played by Zack Williams, though the makeup is pretty bad) and the doctor (I don’t know the name of the actress who played this role); their roles have greater dimension then you would have expected. It’s pretty silly at times, too, with a comic relief detective who manages to escape with his life but loses two sandwiches in the process. This movie has apparently no connection to an earlier film called INGAGI.
