Otto, the Baron's assistant:
Maybe the mixture of the blood wasn't right. You was the only one who knew about it... But maybe someone got into the laboratory?
Otto, the Baron's assistant:
But who, Baron?
The children? But they wouldn't do it. My sister. My sister! She always was very jealous of me. Always! But, we failed. That beautiful Serbian female. Everybody would have jumped-everyone!

I'm surprised that so few people have mentioned the beautiful cinematography of "Flesh for Frankenstein." Director Paul Morrisey went to great extents to model his film after the works of Luchino Visconti and other prolific Italian directors of the time. Of course to appreciate it, you must see it in it's original widescreen picture ratio. Featuring a lush, dreamlike feel that is helped along by a gorgeous and haunting music score, and top notch costumes. The gore, although extreme, possesses a kind of poetry, and i can imagine such sexually eroticized violence must have caused quite a controversy in the UK, at the time of release. Udo Kier is superb in his maniacal portrayal of Dr. Frankenstein, and the changes and additions to the Mary Shelley novel are for once, very smart and a welcome addition to an already great tale. Aside from the 1933 film "Bride of Frankenstein," this is my absolute favorite screen version of the Frankenstein monster. Excellent film!
