"Every morning, she wakes up older and closer to death..."

A doctor very well paid by a veteran artist has conceived a rejuvenation cure and is currently finishing the testing phase. The old woman, impatient of regaining her former beauty, refuses to wait and asks for the injection immediately.

The potion works marvellously. However, when morning comes, she awakens in decomposition. She tries to combat the situation by having another injection. Each morning, she awakens in worse shape than the previous day. Soon enough, we can even see changes in her attitude. There is little potion left but the old woman doesn't want to hear a thing.





I am not a fan of monster movies and I know no one who is. However, if the style interests you, I recommend this movie. The movie somewhat resembles The Fly but without the good actors. The old womanís temper quickly becomes irritating. She deserves what happens to her. I have always had trouble appreciating a movie where an old lady loses her wrinkles for a short period of time, awakens in decomposition (without any hair and her two brains out of her cranium) and who, after injection, becomes once again what is supposed to resemble a sexy woman.

The final punch is surprising but nothing more. It was still an amusing movie. It is not very violent but was predictable for a movie that I randomly picked off a dusty shelf.
