The Pumaman (1980)
Professor Tony Farms (Walter George Alton) makes the discovery of a lifetime when he learns he is really the Pumaman – a superhero descended from the Gods. He is needed when the evil Dr. Kobras (Donald Pleasence) plans to use a sacred Aztec mask to control the minds of the world leaders. Will he succeed or can the Pumaman stop him???
Having never seen this fillm I know very little about it. What I do know doesn’t make things sound so promising:
It was featured on an episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000. That’s not a good omen. Our hero’s costume consists of some funky Aztec logo on a sweater, khaki pants and topping it off with a pair of loafers. The Pumaman is listed in the bottom 100 worst movies of all time on IMDB.com. Oh boy. And Donald Pleasence had stated this is the worst film he had ever been in during his long and extensive career.
I’m getting a bad feeling about this…….
