The Woman Eater

The Woman Eater

Charles Saunders (1957)

A Certificate


Our Score
Fans of mad scientists and killer vegetables should on no account miss this little-known Z-grade affair, a British studio's successful attempt to match similar trash that was coming out of Hollywood in the late 1950s. Boffin George Coulouris propagates a tree that eats young women in the belief that the sap excreted will make him immortal. Director Charles Saunders began his career with the charming wartime comedy Tawny Pipit and ended it with horror and cheap sleaze. Coulouris was in Citizen Kane. Their conversations in the studio canteen must have been particularly melancholic.


Sci-Fi. A mad scientist captures women and feeds them to a flesh eating tree. Stars George Coulouris.
