Quotes

Melisa: Melisa speaks to you on behalf of her great master Cagliostro. Cagliostro created me and half of me is a bird. He meant for me to be his own daughter, but I am blind and therefore unworthy. Cagliostro now transmits the words he wishes you to hear through the fabulous creature that I am. Listen to the master speak these words to you: "I have accorded you the privilege of rising from your graves. But I cannot prevent your flesh from rotting. Originally, I started creating with nature's materials,...

Rites of Frankenstein, The (1972)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

(Spanish, clothed version)

Jess Franco's second attempt at a Frankenstein film is certainly better than the previous one, Dracula, Prisoner of Frankenstein. The evil Cagliostro (Howard Vernon) kills Dr. Frankenstein (Dennis Price) with the aid of a "birdwoman" and then steals the monster so that he can take the world over. This is an extremely bizarre film that really doesn't have a story but its uniquness makes it worth viewing. This was the Spanish version, which features none of the nudity of the French version yet features some additional scenes with Lina Romay. These scenes really don't add anything, except a longer running time but they're interesting to note for being Romay's first of 100+ films for Franco. The French nude scenes were a bonus on the DVD but I'm really not sure how much they would have added to the film. The silver skinned monster is interesting to say the least and his rampage at the end is fun. Britt Nichols co-stars.
