Synopsis by Cavett Binion

Universal concluded their shoestring "Ape Woman" trilogy (beginning with Captive Wild Woman and continuing with Jungle Woman) with this passable installment, though without the participation of the sultry Acquanetta. Vicky Lane assays the role of the human-ape creature -- who died at the end of the previous film, but has again become the obsession of a mad scientist (Otto Kruger this time), who uses all the goofy monster-movie technology at his disposal to bring her back to life. Though it holds its own against its predecessors, there is little of interest not already covered by the other two films, and Kruger is the least-effective mad doc (after John Carradine and J. Carroll Naish, respectively) of the bunch.
