Aliens from a dying world plot to conquer earth by praying on man's superstitions. Bringing two dead scientists (Michael Rennie and Karin Dor) back to life, they use their knowledge to re-animate various earth monsters, including the werewolf Waldemar Daninsky, Frankenstein's monster (both played by Jacinto Molina), the mummy Tao-Tet, and the vampire Count de Meirhoff.

US distributor Samuel M.Sherman chose "La Marca del Hombre Lobo" for his pre-booked 'Frankenstein' title, passing on the opportunity to showcase this film, which actually features a 'Frankenstein' monster. He also believed that this film's European distributor ripped off his Al Adamson title "Dracula vs. Frankenstein." See more »
Guess what? It's yet another bad Spanish-Italian-German film chopped up and sent to America where it can subject audiences to extreme displeasure! Actually, I make it sound better than it is. This thing is so bad, it wasn't even funny. It stars Michael Rennie, in his last role, as an alien from another planet who wants to take over the world using the most famous monsters: Frankenstein, Dracula, the Mummy, and the Werewolf (Played by none other than Paul Naschy). Rennie must have been desperate, you'd have to be to actually even consider being in this. How reviving all the monsters will help the aliens rule world is beyond me. It is commonly available on video as "Dracula vs. Frankenstein", but it was originally released as "Assignment Terror", although the only terror is the movie itself. This must have been an attempt to make people go insane. In fact, the only distinction this film has is the fact that it is only slightly better than Naschy's horror joke "Fury of the Wolfman", and only if you're drunk. Here in Akron, you can get it for $3.00 at the video store, but having seen it on TV, I wisely passed on wasting the cash. I suggest you do the same.
