Like Houdini, Professor Zovek is an escape artist; like The Shadow, he can cloud men's minds; like Bruce Lee, he has mastered the martial arts- and, like a 1960s hippie, he wears a fringed buckskin outfit (with headband). All of which makes him a formidable opponent when one is looking to conquer the world. Switching to a chest-revealing vest, Zovek and two sidekicks travel to what amounts to the island of Dr. Moreau to stop the would-be world conqueror. There, in the bowels of a really cool looking Mayan temple (or somesuch), Zovek and company find midget manimals rotting away in cells. Alas, the trio are captured- but Zovek escapes his captors (by dint of sheer willpower, he makes the chains binding him fall away) and releases the mini-manimals, who swarm all over anyone who gets in their way, devouring them. Zovek finds himself doing battle with a giant black man with fangs in the film's finale (which takes place atop the temple, above a flaming pit). Will our hero survive? You do the math. (And don't let the fact that this was his only movie fool you.).
