Darna And The Tree Monster (1964)
aka: Darna At Ang Babaeng Tuod
A religious, childless couple, wanted badly to have a child. Out of desperation, the mother asked Satan to give them a child in exchange for her soul. The devil agreed, with the condition that when the child reached the age of 18, he will take the mother's soul. The mother conceived and gave birth to a lifeless baby girl that looks like a plastic doll. The child only lived when the devil breathed life into it. Lucila, the demonic child, only brings troubles and embarrassment to the family. On her 18th birthday, her curse began by turning into a viney, humongous, man-eating tree. A few unintentional laughs come, courtesy of a gorilla on the loose. In one of the few scenes where Darna actually appears, she must rescue a damsel who has been abducted by the rampaging gorilla. In a scene borrowed from King Kong, the ape climbs on the roof of a high rise building. (In Tagalog language).
