Verbatim Box Synopsis
A scientific mission goes to Tibet in search of the Abominable Snowman. One man is bitten by two sensuous female cannibals and becomes a werewolf. He thinks he will die, but instead lives on becoming more beast-like with each passing day and longing for blood. The expedition loses some of its members to a cruel war-like native leader. This man is dying from an incurable disease and is being treated with human flesh from live victims. 

The werewolf and the native chief have a fight to the death and the chief is killed. The members of the expedition are still trapped by a cruel female leader and are thrown in her torture dungeon. In a wanton orgy of blood a rescue is attempted and eventually the werewolf has the curse lifted from him.

  1. I don't know how many times I passed up that Super box in the videostore. When I eventually started watching Naschy stuff thanks to the likes of you and Sargent this and HORROR RISES were the first ones I watched. They pretty much ruined me for all future Naschys, no matter how great they are.

  2. That's certainly a tough pair to beat! I quite like CURSE OF THE DEVIL and HUNCHBACK OF THE MORGUE, too.
