"Venus Flytrap (1970) is a rare American/Japanese horror film that is also known as Body of the Prey (original title), The Revenge of Doctor X (American video title), The Revenge of Dr. X (American video box title) and The Devil Garden.
The screenplay is based on an earlier screenplay from the 1950s by Ed Wood without giving Wood credit, despite the fact that most releases of the film now credit it as a so-called 'lost' Ed Wood film.
This was filmed by Toei in Japan from a script Ed apparently wrote in the 50s and it shows. The plot is right out of Ed's 1950's playbook and the dialogue is as convoluted as anything in Bride of the Monster.
Another aspect that shows how important Ed's writing was to the nature of his films is how many actors and directors follow his pattern. This film was made in Japan and yet still features the same hyper-active acting, stock footage and bizarre transitions that featured so prominantly in Ed's own films.
