THE LUCIFER COMPLEX / James Flocker Enterprises - 1978

It's Nazi Clone Monday with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. We gots a little flick starring Robert (TEENAGE CAVE MAN) Vaughn, Merrie Lynn (LOVE AT FIRST BITE) Ross, Keenan (LASERBLAST) Wynn and Aldo (PSYCHIC KILLER) Ray in a 1976 production never released to theaters, going directly to TV in 1978! Above is the un-exciting original VHS box art. David L. Hewitt is a writer/director for this effort, we remember David's directing in MONSTERS CRASH THE PAJAMA PARTY, THE WIZARD OF MARS, JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF TIME, GALLERY OF HORROR and THE MIGHTY GORGA.

Eegah!! sent over a rockin' little soundclip from this flick, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button there next to our atomic powered clone contraption, NOW, Ralphie The Tarantula! Here's our audio offering for... THE LUCIFER COMPLEX!

The story starts with a dude wandering through the mountains who stumbles onto an underground bunker (that still works) where he reviews a number of laser discs that tell the history of war. When he checks out the sixties disc about the Viet Nam war and the protests, he watches hippies playing music at a happening, as heard in the soundclip.

Robert Vaughn plays Glen Manning, an agent that gets captured by a group of modern Nazis after he ejects from his disabled jet. There was also Glenn Manning in THE AMAZING COLOSSAL MAN and WAR OF THE COLOSSAL BEAST.

Glen sneaks out of his room and goes exploring the compound. He finds this room full of people in capsules, the clone thing is starting to make sense. Bottom photo shows Glen saving gal pal April from going under the Nazi scalpel!

April is treated brutally by the Nazi Bitch as Aldo just stands there. That's the name in the credits... Nazi Bitch!

Glen locates an American Sherman tank and ends up blowing the crap out of the compound and the freakin' Nazis as they scramble!!

Then, it's time to meet Hitler's evil clone and hear his new plan for world conquest 2.0!

He turns a death ray on his own henchman and blows a hole in his ugly face!!

Keenan is the American who's also part of the conspiracy, Glen and April watch as Keenan (he has no name in the credits) dies in front of them.

The guy watching the discs notices that there's another Keenan now! I'll let you figure this part out, it should be pretty easy! The wandering guy leaves and continues wandering... Tune in Wednesday for Eegah!!

I wonder how the Mother Flocker felt about this project!

In that photo Keenan Wynn looks like he should be playing Santa Claus. Of course, he did play "Winter Warlock" in that famous Santa Claus cartoon.

A friend of mine (RIP) was an extra in THE LUCIFER COMPLEX...he played something like "Nazi #5" or whatever. He didn't remember much in the way of details about being in the film, except that Robert Vaughn stayed in his trailer most of the time, reading books.
