Horror on the Lens: Indestructible Man (dir by Jack Pollexfen)

Today’s horror on the lens is the surprisingly brutal 1956 B-movie, Indestructible Man!

I reviewed this movie back in 2013.  It was definitely made on a low-budget and it features one of the most sexist endings in cinematic history and yet it’s also occasionally effective.  The film’s biggest strength is that the Indestructible Man is played by Lon Chaney, Jr.  Though Chaney was clearly dealing with his personal demons at the time this film was made, his surly manner and ravaged face make him very effective in the role of Charles “Butcher” Benson.
