Informed that his sick son, Julio, will soon die of heart disease, crazy Dr. Krellman does what any good mad doctor would do and gives Julio the heart of a gorilla. Oops. The transplanted ape heart somehow or other turns the frail young man into a "horrible half beast, half man" with the body of a muscleman and the face of a (sort-of) monkey. In a hilarious frenzy of over-the-top gore and gratuitous nudity, Julio-the-Half-Ape immediately runs through the streets attacking women and mutilating men. Why? 'Cause it's what monsters DO. Quickly deducing that "the heart of a gorilla is much too potent for any human," Dr. Daddy surgically swaps Julio's simian heart with one taken from -are you ready? - a female wrestler. Double oops. Yes, Julio once again turns into a big-boned gorilla man, only this time in pajamas...

The Snake People
For years the police force on the small, secluded island of Korbai have turned a blind eye to the bizarre voodoo rituals of some of the isle's inhabitants - that is, until the arrival of Captain Labesch (Ralph Bertrand) from the mainland. Tired of the island people's lawlessness, he recruits the aid of wealthy plantation owner, Carl Van Molder (Boris Karloff), who owns half the island. But before they can get the policemen to clean up their acts, a sinister snake charmer begins to transform the native island women into mindless zombies who prey upon the police - and anyone else who gets in their way. And when Van Molder's niece is kidnapped by the cultists with the intention of using her as the next virgin sacrifice, he and the virtuous Captain Labesch are forced to find a way to stop the murderous voodoo cult in a frenzied race against time.
