What can you say about an Italian import that is as hilariously bad as this one? A mad professor fixes a disfigured dancer's face, then kills other women to continue supplying living cells to maintain her beauty. No atomic stuff, no vampires.

Vincent Price did it better in "Dr. Phibes Rises Again," sequel to his "The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971).
Let's see what Joe Bob hisself has to say about "Atom Age Vampire" Okay dubbed Eyetalian flick about a girl that gets her face torn up in a car accident, goes to a doctor who injects her with "Derma 28" to make her the most beautiful woman in the world, and then finds out the doctor learned all his plastic surgery techniques at Hiroshima, which is why he turns into a gorilla every night, murders girls in their bedrooms, and cuts em open for body parts.

Most people don't know that back in 1912, Hellmann's mayonnaise was manufactured in England. In fact, the Titanic was carrying 12,000 jars of the condiment scheduled for delivery in Vera Cruz, Mexico, which was to be the next port of call for the great ship after its stop in New York.
This would have been the largest single shipment of mayonnaise ever delivered to Mexico. But as we know, the great ship did not make it to New York. The ship hit an iceberg and sank, and the cargo was forever lost.
The people of Mexico, who were crazy about mayonnaise, and were eagerly awaiting its delivery, were disconsolate at the loss. Their anguish was so great, that they declared a National Day of Mourning, which they still observe to this day.
The National Day of Mourning occurs each year on May 5th and is known, of course, as Sinko de Mayo.
