    EVIL SPAWN (1987)
    It is the classic story of the aging starlet who desperately wants to discover the fountain of youth. But with John Carradine, breasts, a giant bug and the budget of the trade in value of a totaled Yugo! Lynn Roman (Bobbie Bresee) is hoping to snag the lead in SAVAGE GODDESS (because she is apparently tired of doing b-movie crap). But the producers want someone who is in the 21-25 age range. By sheer coincidence, mad scientist/obsessive Roman fan Evelyn Avery shows up to offer her a new youth serum (right after killing poor Carradine in some previously shot footage). The only problem is that when Roman gets excited or angry, she turns into a giant monster. This is z-grade trash but enjoyable with enough nudity and gore to satisfy fans. Bresee dons at least as much make-up as in MAUSOLEUM and seems to be having a good time. It doesn't hurt that she also isn't afraid to get naked. The IMDb lists guys like Richard Harrison and Gordon Mitchell in the film but they are nowhere to be seen in the Retromedia DVD. Perhaps they are in the re-edit THE ALIEN WITHIN?
