According the website 'MORIA - The Science Fiction, Horror and Fantasy Film Review', "one of the most popular stories of the classic German Expressionist era was Alraune (1911) by Hanns Heinz Ewers, which received a number of film adaptations with the Hungarian Alraune (1919); a German version Alraune (1918) [Alraune und der Golem (1919)]; A Daughter of Destiny (1928) starring Brigitte Helm; a sound remake of the 1928 film Alraune (1930)/"Daughter of Evil" also starring Brigitte Helm; and Unnatural (1952) [Mandragore (1952)] with Hildegard Knef and Erich von Stroheim. It told the story of a woman birthed from the seed of a hanged murderer who, through being born artificially, had no soul and became a seducer, using and luring men to their doom . . . Embryo (1976) . . . rehashes the story of Alraune without any credit". See more »

i really enjoyed this movie.i thought the acting was very good,and the storyline well developed.i'm sure the movie was inspired by past literary works and movies,but i think it also inspired other movies and novels.so,obviously it's not wholly original,but it does have its own original elements to it.it's a cautionary tale for sure and it's just as relevant today, probably more so .the only negative thing i can say about it is that it can be a bit slow,and the first half has an almost clinical feel to it.by this i mean at times it's a bit dry and almost too scientific.overall,though i think it was a well done movie.i give Embryo a 7/10
