Go To
Lured into the house of monsters...and butts.

A No Budget B-Movie thriller from 1957, directed by Boris Petroff and starring John Carradine, Allison Hayes, Myron Healey, and Tor Johnson.

Professor Charles Conway (Carradine) is a Mad Scientist attempting to develop the proverbial Fountain of Youth by creating "the 17th gland". Ignoring all aspects of scientific ethics, Conway uses as his research subjects people who have no family and are under the impression that he can cure their depression. The research has been unsuccessful, however, and his subjects have all wound up as grotesque zombies. Some of Conway's patients begin to catch on to his scheme and intend to stop him.
