Beast of Blood is a 1971 Filipino horror film. It follows a mad scientist who creates a monster, but after its head is cut off, he keeps it alive in a serum he has invented.
It is a sequel to The Mad Doctor of Blood Island.
The ship carrying Dr.Bill Foster (John Ashley), Sheila Willard, her father and Carlos Lopez explodes and sinks after Don Ramon is found on board and goes on a rampage. Don Ramon washes up on Blood Island and heads to the jungle. Dr. Foster was the only other survivor and after a few months heads back to the island on another ship. On board is reporter Myra Russell (Celeste Yarnall) who is looking for the story about the explosion.
When Foster and Russell arrive on the island they find the natives in a state of fear saying the old Lopez mansion is cursed. With the village head man Ramu (Alfonso Carvajal) and the ship's Captain (Beverly Miller), they search the house and find Razak (Bruno Punzalan) alive. The green men return and after a fight, Myra is captured and taken to Dr.Lorca (Eddie Garcia) who is alive but horribly scarred.
Dr. Foster and Laida (Liza Belmonte) search the mountains and find Dr.Lorca's headquarters. Laida goes back to the village for help and Lorca shows Foster his latest experiments. He has removed Don Ramon's head and has attached it to machines while the body remains strapped to a table. Lorca knows the head can speak but it won't.
The Captain, Laida and Ramu lead an attack on Lorca's headquarters and fight his men. Laida finds her father who shows signs of the chlorophyll effects and rescues him. Foster shoots Razak and Don Ramon's head controls his body and has it attack Dr. Lorca and apparently Lorca is killed by the monster. Lorca's lab explodes killing all inside and Foster and the group leave with a box of Lorca's papers.
