A direct sequel to the previous year's Captive Wild Woman:

Dr Fletcher (J.Carrol Naish), one of these nosey scientists, buys the gorilla's body after it has been shot dead in Captive Wild Woman ... and for no reason at all it comes back to life as Paula Dupree (Acquanetta), who almost immediately falls in love with Bob (Richard David), the fiancé of Doc Fletcher's daughter Joan (Lois Collier). Jealousy though once again makes Paula go bonkers, and before long she starts killing chickens and a retard (Eddie Hyans), then she convinces Bob that Doc Fletcher is abusing her, so Bob takes her away ... though inexplicably, he later takes her back to Doc Fletcher, where she immediately tries to hunt down and kill Joan. Ultimately though, it's up to Doctor Fletcher to kill Paula before she can do any damage, and though he's almost convicted to it, when her corpse is seen turned back into an ape, he is acquitted of the crime (and all the injustice he has actually done to the ape woman by making her one of his subjects for examination) ...


Captive Wild Woman was an at best average entry into Universal's horror cycle, which has lost quite some steam in the 1940's as it is. Jungle Woman is an bargain basement sequel to the already low budget earlier film, reusing many of its more costly sequences (especially Clyde Beatty's animal training sequences) in its first quarter to make the film look more expensive than it actually was. In all though, the film is disappointingly dull, no more than an uninspired reworking of the earlier film (which wasn't great to begin with) that doesn't even try to come into its own or even live up to the standards of the less-than-special former film.

In a word, a disappointment, and a futher nail in the coffin of the once proud Universal horror cycle.
