I agree with a lot of FilmWalrus' comments and really enjoyed this one. This film is not for everybody and a lot of people are going to hate it for its impenetrability. To the unbelievers, I say: relax, this just isn't your film.

Pretty disturbing and creepy. I enjoyed it. Seems to be a commentary on body image through gory horror imagery if I am reading into it correctly.

Kind of a mixture between Hammer's gothic horror films and an S&M erotic film but without any nudity. It's also a bit slow but interesting enough.

This film was pretty painful to watch. Some great cinematography but the subject matter was too repulsive for me. Also, this was probably intentional, but the noise from the iron lung that the nazi doctor was in really got on my nerves towards the end of the film.

I know these other commenters didn't have such a great time with this but I actually thought it was kind of "so bad, it's good." There was some painful dialogue and characters including a drunk actress who talks to herself constantly and some annoying beatnik, but the special effects are actually pretty cool. It was slightly better than a lot of the really bad drive-in movies of the times. Or maybe slightly better than a movie the MST3K guys used to make fun of.

Monster design and makeup are really cool but the editing and story are a disaster. Like CSSCHNEIDER said, something seems to be missing. The main character is a blank slate, completely devoid of personality. There is no setup where they show what kind of person he is. I don't think they even said what he does for a job or anything like that. He is literally just some guy who is having some bad dreams.

I've heard they may be releasing a director's cut Blu-ray through Scream Factory in 2014. I would be willing to check that one out to see if the editing is better.
