Storyline

When Dr. Frankenstein is killed by a monster he created, his daughter and his lab assistant Marshall continue his experiments. The two fall in love and attempt to transplant Marshall's brain in to the muscular body of a retarded servant Stephen, in order to prolong the aging Marshall's life. Meanwhile, the first monster seeks revenge on the grave robbers who sold the body parts used in its creation to Dr. Frankenstein. Soon it comes after Marshall and the doctor's daughter.

Quotes

Tania Frankenstein: My dear man, you are obnoxious, extremely vulgar - and while I am certain that what you are thinking is merely fantasy on your part, I would say you spend too much time alone in your fantasies; be careful: it will soften your brain far quicker than can whisky.
Jack Morgan: How can someone so beautiful be such a bitch?
Tania Frankenstein: Depends on the company you keep.

Pretty entertaining Frankenstein variation
19 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

I have a real prejudice in favor of weird Italian movies (horror, SF, "Peplum", any kind), from the ones considered masterpieces to the ones considered awful, and this is really no exception (I first saw it only a year ago). It isn't the FIRST film with a female "mad scientist", but it does give an unusual "feminist" version of the Frankenstein idea, so to speak. Two of the more interesting characters were a very refined police detective and a small-time criminal whom he could never pin anything on, and whom the detective seemed to hate because of their class differences as much as any other reason. I didn't realize for a long while that the detective was played by Mickey Hargitay. This makes me (and maybe anyone seeing it) wonder why he didn't play the stable boy character whose body she wants. Or, on the other hand, why she didn't want to use the body of the detective, partly since he was played by Hargitay, and partly because he was always snooping around (talk about two birds with one stone). Either way, the scenes between him and the criminal were very good, again, because of their class differences. And this led to a genuinely great line (that wasn't hurt at all by dubbing). The detective went to the criminal's house to ask some questions, and found him with a girl. When he finished, the detective said with distaste, "Now I'll let you get back to - whatever it is you call it." The criminal said, "The same thing YOU call it."
