Brazzi plays mad Dr. Frankenstein, Dunn is an evil dwarf and Lugosi (no relation to Bela) is a Neanderthal man. Add a monster named Hulk, and some nude women for sexploitation value.

Mildly entertaining nonsense
23 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Since the beginning of film there have been many adaptations, parodies, cartoons, etc. featuring the characters of Mary Shelley's novel 'Frankenstein.' There's of course the classic 1931 Universal film version and Kenneth Branagh's adaptation that got a mixed reaction. But in between there are films like this 1974 Italian production, which is one of the most bizarre and tacky interpretations of the story I think I've ever seen. Instead of the classic "mad scientist brining a man back to life" scenario, we get that and some strange subplots. Is it really that bad of a movie though? Well, it is pretty poor in terms of directing and writing quality, but yet it's kind of fun if you don't take it too seriously. It's especially enjoyable if you watch the Elvira's Movie Macabre version.

Pros: A real nice and spooky old castle. Deliciously cheesy score. Some unintentionally humorous stuff. Loaded with old monster movie clichés that kind of add to the fun. Considering the quality of this the film the acting isn't too bad. Moves at an OK pace. Has a fair amount of camp value.

Cons: Lacking in good plot and characterization. Poor dubbing on not all, but most of the cast. Maybe too many clichés. Predictable ending with a stupid last line.

Final thoughts: It doesn't get much cheaper than this effort. Don't go out of your way to find it, but if you're in the mood for something a little on the goofy side then you might get some enjoyment out of this mix of exploitation, sex, and cheap thrills. Nobody does it like the Italians.

My rating: 2.5/5
