Peter Cushing stars as a scientist who discovers a Neanderthal skeleton that grows flesh whenever and wherever it gets wet. Christopher Lee plays his scheming half brother. For some odd reason, Cushing injects his daughter with the creature’s blood and she goes insane. (I hate when that happens.) Both stars are great and so is the ending (when Lee takes the skeleton out into the rain). LAUGH ALERT: When Cushing puts the creature’s dismembered finger in water it looks like a big dick! Directed by Freddie Francis.
