The Disembodied is a voodoo melodrama set in a Hollywood-backlot jungle. The villain of the piece is Tonda (Allison Hayes), the craven wife of jungle doctor Metz (John Wengraf). Whenever she can't get what she wants, Tonda resorts to voodoo to confound and destroy her enemies. Naturally, she receives her comeuppance in a particularly untidy fashion. Top billing is bestowed upon Paul Burke, who after achieving stardom in TV's Naked City and 12 O'Clock High tended to remove Disembodied from his resume. The film was originally released on a double bill with From Hell it Came.
