Night of the Bloody Apes is the title of the 1972 English language version of the 1969 Mexican horror film La Horripilante bestia humana (“The Horrible Man-Beast”), also known as Horror y sexo (“Horror and Sex”) and as Gomar—The Human Gorilla. The film was directed by René Cardona and is a remake of his 1962 film Las Luchadoras contra el medico asesino (“The Wrestling Women vs. the Killer Doctor”; U.S. title Doctor of Doom), the first in a series of films blending elements of the lucha libre and horror genres.
The plot concerns a mad scientist who transplants a gorilla‘s heart into his dying son, saving his life but transforming him into a monstrous, ape-like creature who embarks on a rape and murder spree before being brought to justice by a luchadora (female wrestler). The plot of Night of the Bloody Apes does not concern the luchadora bringing the ape-man to justice—rather, she has a much less pronounced role in the plot.
