Frankenstein's Bloody Terror (1968) **1/2
26 March 2013 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

The first thing one must know before viewing this film is that it's got nothing at all to do with Frankenstein; American producer Sam Sherman concocted this title along with a fake opening Frankenstein credits sequence because he was supposed to deliver a Frankenstein movie but couldn't get it in on time. In actuality, aside from its misleading name, this is a pretty good Spanish movie about werewolves, originally called "La Marca del Hombre Lobo" ("The Mark of the Wolf Man"). It was written by Jacinto Molina, who wound up having to star in the movie himself when veteran horror actor Lon Chaney Jr. was unable to do it. Molina changed his name to Paul Naschy, and this would become the first of many adventures featuring his popular character Waldemar Daninsky, who in this first film is bitten by a werewolf and cursed to endure the transformation from man into beast during the full moon.

This is a very eerily-lit, moody and atmospheric horror experience, full of Gothic ambiance and old ruined castle settings. The only reason it just misses a good solid three star rating is due to its sometimes lagging pacing, but nothing more. Naschy is very effective as the sympathetic victim who turns into a very fierce and ravenous wolf man. He is helped by a young friend who cares for him by locking him away in an abandoned old castle. In the meantime, he secures the services of an eccentric husband and wife duo who claim to be doctors who'll cure Waldemar; but who actually turn out to be blood sucking vampires with evil intentions of their own! The female vampire is played by the alluring Aurora de Alba, and the way she seduces the young male friend is one of the sexiest makeout/biting sequences I have ever seen in such a genre film. I would gladly submit to her vampiric intentions. **1/2 out of ****
