A scientist who suffers from impotence explores unusual methods, including experimenting on corpses and on himself.
An homage in equal parts to “Frankenstein”, “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”, and the erotic films of late Italian horror auteur Joe D’Amato, Hyde’s Secret Nightmare is itself a wild erotic horror film from the highly prolific Italian producer/director Domiziano Cristopharo. The story colourfully strobes through a cinematic landscape of obsession, paranoia, phobia, perversion, and transgression, as Henry, a scientist, attempts to create a cure for his own impotence, and in doing so enlists the help of his assistant Hans and a necrophiliac gravedigger Abdul to illegally retrieve several corpses for his over-the-top experiments. After testing the experimental serum on himself, the mad doctor finds himself possessing the body of a woman, Eva Hyde (Roberta Gemma), who becomes engulfed in a world of dark eroticism where sex seems the only way to attain a state of well-being
