Womaneater (also released as The Woman Eater) is a British sci-fi horror film about a carnivorous tree that is transported from the Amazon to England by Dr. Moran (George Coulouris) and Tanga (Jimmy Vaughan), who feed women to the tree — thus the title of the film — as part of an effort to produce a serum that is able to resurrect the dead.
