Atwill is a noted zoologist and sportsman married to Burke (the Panther Woman of ISLAND OF THE LOST SOULS). His wife has been having a series of affairs, and the insanely jealous Atwill uses the animals of his zoo to kill off her lovers. The picture opens with Atwill on a jungle safari,

sewing up the lips of one of Burke's flings. Later when she tries to innocently ask if this friend has left any message for her before "leaving," Atwill replies that "he didn't say anything!" From there it's on to the reptile house at the zoo, where her various flames are killed by pythons, tossed

into the crocodile pool, and finally a mixture of creatures is let loose to wreak havoc. Ruggles plays the zoo's press agent, as the film's much needed comic relief. Scott, who plays the hero, later became famous as a B-Western cowboy star, while Lodge, one of Burke's lovers, left his thespian

career and was elected Governor of Connecticut. Made during the height of horror films of the 1930s, the censors were appalled at what they saw, resulting in the film being often cut, with lopped out sequences varying from theater to theater.
