She's Definitely Her Daddy's Daughter!
1 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

"La Figlia Di Frankenstein" (aka. "Lady Frankenstein" / "Daughter Of Frankenstein") of 1971 is a highly entertaining Gothic flick that is labeled pure trash by some and praised as a terrific cult gem by others. I belong to the latter group, and I am sure that most of my fellow fans of cult-cinema will share my opinion. Fact is that "Lady Frankenstein" is, even if occasionally silly or over the top, an overall amazingly moody, stylish and highly original Gothic tale that no lover of Eurohorror and Exploitation cinema should consider missing. As the title already gives away, the obsessed scientist Baron Frankenstein is not the central figure of this film. Baron Frankenstein (who is played by Joseph Cotten here) has a beautiful daughter in this film, and young Lady Frankenstein (Rosalba Neri) is just as dedicated to recreate life as her father is... I have been a great fan of Joseph Cotten for years, and he is once again terrific in the role of Frankenstein (even though not as great as Peter Cushing, whom I admire even more, was in the role in the Hammer films). Beautiful Rosalba Neri is great in the role of the eponymous young Lady Frankenstein, sexy, cold and obsessed at the same time. The cast includes several other familiar faces for Horror/Exploitation fans, most memorably the sinister Paul Muller ("Nightmare Castle", "Vampiros Lesbos", "Nights Of Dracula"), and Austrian actor Herbert Fux ("Mark Of The Devil", Jack The Ripper",...), who recently passed away. Fux is best known for TV roles in Austria, but his most memorable ones are still those in 70s Exploitation flicks. Jayne Mansfield's one time husband Mickey Hargitay ("The Crimson Executioner") and Joshua Sinclair ("Keoma") also have roles in the film. The film is not very violent, and for early 70s exploitation there is very little gore, but it is quite sleazy occasionally. What probably makes this film most worthwhile, are both the wonderfully Gothic, and sometimes genuinely creepy atmosphere, and the delightful insanity that is maintained throughout the film. Overall, "Lady Frankenstein" is an immensely entertaining and atmospheric Gothic tale that I highly recommend to all my fellow cult-cinema lovers out there!
