exploitation classic
20 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Following on the heels of blacula and Dr black and Mr Hyde,blackenstein is a pretty good little b movie made by American international pictures,although not shown in the credits.blackenstein is laughable at some point,but good.i actually enjoyed it more than blacula.John Hart who played the lone ranger back in the day,is Dr stein a kindly Dr who has mad lab equipment in his basement.a former pupil of Dr stein comes to visit,played by lovely;Ivory Stone whose fiancé is a Vietnam vet who had his arms and legs blown off in combat.OK i guess you will see how this is going.for a 1974 movie its pretty gory.and yes the lab props were from the universal Frankenstein films borrowed from the late Ken Skrickfadden.blackenstein is a fun horror film for fans of the genre.cant figure out why a.i.p. is not in any credits,they may have disowned the film in the later years.if you never seen blackenstein then heres your chance.gruesome exploitation from the seventies.
