The Bride and the Beast (1958)

How bad is it? It's deliriously stupid.
Should you see it? Sure.

Apparently penned by the immortal Ed Wood, Jr., the plot has a woman with a strong affiliation with animals, particularly apes, undergoing hypnosis. Under past-life regression, she's found to have once been a gorilla in a previous incarnation. She and her husband go to the jungle, where they encounter  a gorilla, and she leaves her husband for the gorilla! The stock footage and man in an ape suit antics are about bottom-of-the-barrel as you can find. It also involves some classic Wood-en dialogue.
