"Brace yourselves, folks, this one’s a jaw-dropper! Frozen-fazed automatons and a goofy-looking monster (with a blinking light in the center of his forhead) abducted a collection of sexual specimens - hippies, lesbians, stripper Gloria Prat - who are whisked off to the estate of crasy Dr. Humpp (Aldo Barbero). There, with the aid of aphrodisiacs, "electronic control of the libido, "and a talking, pulsating, disembodied brain, in a jar (who’s always in a bad mood), Dr. H turns his guests into "veritable screwing machines." He then drains "the blood forces of sex" from the copulating couples which he uses as an elixir to keep himself eternally young. Investigating the kidnappings, journalist Richard Bauleo quickly finds himself part of the story when he’s partnered with Miss Prat on Humpp’s telepathic sex machine. As the good doc points out, "Sex dominates the world and now I dominate sex!"
Wow. A delirious crackpot cult classick, THE CURIOUS DR. HUMPP is one of the wildest, wackest mixes of sci-fi, monsters, and skin ever filmed!"
"This Brazilian (note: it is really from Argentina) sex/horror film is indescribable to say the least! Shot in 1967 and released there as LA VENGANZA DEL SEXO, a few years later it was brought to the U.S. and juiced up with some softcore sex scenes filmed in New York.
The added American sex scenes convert a sexy tease of an imported horror film into something more along the lines of old school softcore porn. Ingeniously blended in, the new scenes include a pair of lesbians, a quartet of dope smoking hippies, and a blond masturbator, all who end up captured and brought to Humpp's house of sexual shenanigans. The American distributor also padded out some tame love scenes from the original Brazilian cut by editing in nude body doubles.
The added smut is enticing enough, but it kind of slows down the rest of the plot (luckily, it doesn't go on too long). Monster film fans should get a kick out of what can be described as a cross between a 30s serial and an early 60s Mexican horror film (which in turn were inspired by 40s American horror films), with an added dose of sex and skin and ridiculous dubbed dialog (any film that has someone referring to a character named "Dr. Humpp" with a straight face has got to inspire a chuckle). - dvddrive-in.com
