Baron Victor Von Frankenstein has fallen on hard times; he was tortured at the hands of the Nazis for not cooperating with them during World War II and he is now badly disfigured. As his family's wealth begins to run out, the Baron is forced to allow a TV crew shooting a documentary on his monster-making ancestors to film at his castle in Germany. However, the Baron has some ideas of his own: using the money from the crew's rent he buys an atomic reactor and uses it to create a hulking monster, transplanting his butler's brain into the thing and using it to kill off the crew for more spare parts.

Baron Victor von Frankenstein(Boris Karloff) was scarred by his Nazi captors during World War II, he plans to recreate the legendary Monster originally conceived by his ancestor. In order to raise money to purchase an atomic reactor to complete his experiments, he permits an American TV unit to film a show at his castle. During the late fifties, television exposure of Karloff's old Frankenstein films sparked a new horror cycle in Hollywood. Karloff was made up to look rather like a disfigured German Count and does a careful, convincing job with his role, which is competently written. The supporting cast of Tom Duggan , Irwin Berke, local TV personalities and Jana Lund(one time sweetheart of Elvis Presley) do well enough but cannot be in class with Karloff. No matter what you think of the film, it is still another Boris Karloff classic and should be viewed by all Karloff fans.
