 Outside of FREAKS, this might be one of the purest forms of exploitation cinema ever. The star of this film is a deformed fellow who suffered from acromeglia named Rondo Hatton. Now the thing that makes this so exploitative is that they just took Hatton's real life story and tweaked it a little bit and turned him into a murderer and came out with this story of an ugly wronged man seeking vengeance on a society that fears him. By the time this movie was over I felt pretty depressed, mostly because Hatton, or The Creeper as he's called here, is treated like crap throughout this movie but is still portrayed as the villain of the film. He even manages to make friends with a blind gal at one point and even that ends in betrayal. Of course on the bright side at least ol' Rondo was able to make a few bucks pretty much just playing himself as a back-breaking/strangle-happy killer before he died of his ailment(which was shortly after making this movie) though this movie was released after he was already dead so I'm not sure how much he made anyhow. So while this isn't the most uplifting thing you could watch it is an interesting relic from the good old days when filmmakers would pretty much exploit anything terrible. AKA THE BRUTE(why they didn't just call it THE CREEPER, since that's what the villain is called, I'm not sure)

Pretty as a picture!:
