"Going Green in the Most Destructive Way"

Films: The Mad Doctor of Blood Island (1968), Beast of Blood (1970)

Alias: Don Ramon Lopez, the Green Men

Type: Man-Made

Location: Jungle/Haunted Home

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Neutral

Summary: Welcome to Blood Island. A place located in the Philippines, and ground zero for some of the most twisted experiments regarding plant life. At the center of it all is Dr. Lorca, who has the natives in a vice grip of terror with the misshapen toothy monstrosities he unleashes on them on a regular basis.

History: Dr. Lorca, far from the judgement of civilization, took up a living in Blood Island experimenting on locals and visitors with chlorophyll in a bid for discovering the secret to eternal life. While he didn't seem to be getting very far, he enjoyed the fact that his experiments gave rise to either mutated plant life or hideous man-beasts that feasted on the blood of others. Chief among those mutations was poor Don Ramon Lopez, who went from green-skinned zombie to fanged partially rotted telepathic zombie in a matter of only two movies.

Notable Kills: See Final Fate.

Final Fate: Dr. Lorca got lucky the first time his lab went up in flames with him still in it. The next time on the other hand, Don Ramon, his head hooked up to a machine, commands his body to confront Lorca as the lab goes up in flames again. Both their fates are sealed in this moment.

Powers/Abilities: If connected to a certain device, Don Ramon can control his body from afar.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 4-Dr. Lorca himself is just a mad scientist who admits it, while his creations are nothing less than horrible. Decaying skin, lots of sharp teeth, and a mad desire to kill everything make these beasts some of the most frightening results of mad science.

Trivia: -Dr. Lorca was played by Eddie Garcia, who was inducted into three categories of the Filipino Academy of Movie Arts and Sciences Awards (best actor, supporting actor, and director).

Chlorophyll is the part of the plant that helps it convert sunlight into energy. How it factors into creating horrible plant-zombies is anyone's guess.

Just what we needed. A double-whammy of this.

That can't be healthy.

Basically, no bounderies.

"I'm sure this is as worse as this gets."

Good luck eating with that mouth.

"I'm here to confess my undying love!"

Well, this got awkward very fast.

If it knows how to use an axe, it's not totally mindless, audiences of the 70s.

"Tell my date, Jan, that I might be late."
