Tonight's Weird Wednesday presentation is called "Corruption." An equally descriptive title would be "What A Bunch Of Freakin' Weirdos."
I'm pretty sure the woman with four eyes makes this the weirdest poster I've seen lately!
"Corruption" is a movie about a couple whose lives get off track and they quickly descend into a cesspool of feces.
Peter Cushing is renown surgeon Sir John Rowan.
He's doing a fairly good impression of me watching movies on this computer night after night!
fiancé is a beautiful model named Lynn Nolan as played by Sue Lloyd, who we just saw recently in "The Baron," as Cordelia Winfield.
This dude is like a human canvas.
Lynn's photographer asks her to pose for a live impromptu shoot at the party.
Sir John doesn't like it when the photographer asks Lynn to partially disrobe, and they get into a pushing contest, and the next thing you know..................
...................One of the big bright lights gets knocked over and smacks Lynn right in the kisser!
Lynn gets a very nasty burn on the pretty face that her whole career is based on, and will be disfigured for life.
Sir John decides to devote his life to finding a way to make Lynn beautiful again, and after scouring for weeks through a myriad of books, he thinks he has found a solution. The only thing he needs is this pituitary glad that he illegally removes from some hapless corpse in the morgue.
Obviously, the artist who did the poster did not know in what part of the body the pituitary gland was located since he's cutting into her stomach.
The operation is a success, and Lynn is returned to her original beauty, but there's one small problem. Because the gland came out of a dead body, the results only last for a few days, and that's where the rub comes into play. Now Sir John has to get a live pituitary gland, and that's going involve breaking some laws.
Sir John struggles with the fact that he was sworn to saving lives, not taking them, but his love for Lynn is so strong, he has no other choice, so he takes a trip to visit a prostitute whose room is full of strange dolls!
After the second successful operation, Sir John and Lynn decide it's time that they take a little vacation, and then the effects start wearing off again, and now it's also starting to affect Lynn's mental state.
So Sir John has to go out and do it all again. This time a stranger on a train is the unlucky victim!
Strange lens! Look at the size of Peter's arm!
Sir John is no longer a happy camper. This is not the gig he signed up for, so it's kind of a race to see who completely loses it first, him or Lynn!
In the meantime, this group of hooligans show up looking for their gal pal that had been staying with Sir John and Lynn, but got a little freaked out when she found a woman's head in the freezer, and they had to kill her too.
