THE BLOODY APE is the most outrageous, drive-in movie take on Poe’s “Murders in the Rue Morgue” ever committed to film. A carnival barker foolishly releases his 400 pound gorilla, who then literally goes bananas on a rampage of raw rape and boffo butchery – leaving the low rent population of Long Island either sexually violated, slaughtered – or both! From maverick indie filmmaker Keith J. Crocker, THE BLOODY APE is a gore-soaked love letter to the sex and violence of the grind house movie era – much as Crocker’s BLITZKRIEG: ESCAPE FROM STALAG 69 is a giddy, in-your-face throwback to the perverse and blood-soaked Euro-Trash Naziploitation sub-genre of the 1970s! A true EXTREME Double Feature!
Rue Morgue says of director Keith J. Crocker’s films: “Gleefully offensive low budget trash” and “An [indie] classic… an adventure into the obscure mind of a filmmaker influenced by the underground of yesteryear!” The Bloody Ape was originally shot on Super 8 film; both films are presented in the Extreme Horror Double Feature on Blu-ray for the first time ever, boasting never-before-seen extras!!
Director: Keith J. Crocker Cast: Steve Montague, Tatyana Kot, Minerva Borack; Arlene Burns, Bob Ceislick, Christina Zuber Crocker
