The film stars Mabel Karr as Irma Zimmer, a surgeon who creates a machine that turns people into zombified slaves. Ms. Zimmer is the daughter of a Professor Zimmer (a disciple of Dr. Orloff), who was hounded to his death several years earlier by four of his scientific associates. Zimmer uses the machine to control an erotic dancer named Miss Muerte (Estella Blain) who uses her long poison-tipped fingernails to murder the people Ms. Zimmer holds responsible for her father’s death.
The Diabolical Dr. Z was written and Jean-Claude Carrière based on a story by director Jesús Franco. The film is loosely based on the 1940 novel The Bride Wore Black. Despite being one of Franco’s favourite films of his earlier period, Franco has stated that the film “shouldn’t have been made… Censorship was causing me troubles.”
