THE BRIDE AND THE BEAST:
A supernatural drama of terror and scientific fiction produced and directed by Adrian Weiss. The script was written by none other than Edward D. Wood Jr. When Laura (Charlotte Austin) and Dan (Lance Fuller) get married, she appears to be more interested in Dan’s gorilla. It’s revealed through hypnosis that she was Queen of the Gorillas in a previous incarnation.
A white gorilla is snubbed by black gorillas because he is the wrong color. Cut off from his tribe he becomes lonely and angry. After troubling hunters and natives, the white gorilla fights the king of the black gorillas while we are told by a narrator that the fate of Africa hangs in the balance.
