Immortal Hulk

HORROR HAS A NAME.
You'd never notice the man. He doesn't like to be noticed. He's quiet. Calm. Never complains. If someone were to walk up and shoot him in the head... all he'd do is die.
Until night falls. And someone else gets up again.
The man's name is Banner.
The horror is THE IMMORTAL HULK.

It can't be for kids who are too young to remember the original at the content is strictly adults only, including a scene where Muttley bites off a guys leg (?) Apparently there's a race going on but there's no attempt to give a more
