THE CURIOUS DR. HUMPP (1969)
Very strange movie here. There's this talking brain in a jar who controls this doctor who sends out his monstrous experiment, who wears sparkly platform shoes and likes to play music for naked ladies, to capture various couples, some hippies in an orgy, a coupla lesbians and a stripper. From there our titular Dr. Humpp fills them full of an aphrodisiac and extracts "bodily fluids" from them while they're screwing in order to keep himself alive. Oh and he also has an army of robot-like henchman to guard his castle and dispose of the bodies he's used up. What the point of all this is I'm not totally clear, something about finding the key to immortal life or something. For a movie that's chock fulla so many bizarre things it does drag a bit and it's runtime seems a bit long. On the other hand it's so strange that you kinda have to at least watch this one once just to say you did. It kinda reminded me of a more sex-filled AWFUL DR. ORLOFF and if that sounds good to you give it a look.
This was originally released in Argentina under the title THE VENGEANCE OF SEX with way less sex scenes(17 minutes or so of them) which were inserted by the American distributor to make it an "adult" film. This would probably make the film flow a lot better.
