Movie Details

Some people will do anything to maintain the appearance of youth as can be seen in this stomach-churning, off-beat horror movie. The tale centers on Dr. Elaine Frederick (played by Veronica Lake who hadn't appeared in a film for 22 years), a plastic surgeon in Miami. She is a former mental patient and has a rather unique way of operating upon her aging patients: first she has specially bred maggots munch away all of the old skin, and then she reconstructs the face. Her practice is thriving and she remains mentally stable until she takes a good look at her newest patient and discovers that he is Adolf Hitler. Unfortunately for him, Frederick's mother died in one of his concentration camps. Now the Dr. uses her carnivorous worms to get graphic, gruesome revenge upon the deposed madman. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
