"The Manster is a 1959 horror film, a coproduction between the US and Japan, starring Peter Dyneley. The film was notable for its creative use of special effects. The film is also known as Doktor Satan, The Two-Headed Monster (双頭の殺人鬼) and The Split. Manster is a favorite among campy horror aficionados and for good reason as it is both unintentionally funny and genuinely creepy. A 'Manster' is half-man, half-monster. To accommodate this set-up, the title character has two heads. Back in his single-domed days, the Manster was an American reporter (Peter Dyneley) assigned to interview a Tokyo-based scientist (Satoshi Nakamura). Alas, the scientist was off his rocker, and while experimenting with mutations, he turned the reporter into a double-header."
Music from The Manster
"Though filmed in Japan, The Manster was based on a script by British producer George Breakston, and acted (if that is the word) entirely in English. Sam Raimi's 'ARMY OF DARKNESS' pays homage to this film. When Ash has swallowed one of his little dopplegangers, he then grows an eye on his right shoulder, which results in him splitting into two beings; Good Ash and Evil Ash."
It's a good, fun, creepy ass film with a few good special effects and a shitload of bad ones. Good times.
