Dr. Bob Frankenstein (Mark Blankfield) is the great-great grandson of Victor. Unlike Victor, however, he is working at a Los Angeles General Hospital as an intern under the name of Dr. Robert Frankenheimer. What his coworkers do not know, however, is that he has a laboratory, which is in B&W while everything else is in color (because it has been "drained of color", Bob says) and along with his dimwitted, two left-legged hunch-back Iggy, he intends to create the perfect human to succeed where his ancestors failed. However, as usual, the experiment goes wrong when Iggy steals the brain of a sex and food starved teenager instead of a brilliant mind, and the resulting Monster (Irwin Keyes) wreaks havoc through General Hospital.

I'll put it simply: this Frankenstein spoof (actually more of a Frankenstein travesty) doesn't offer enough laughs to merit a recommendation. There is no plot, and there isn't enough material for a feature-length film; as a result, there are some scenes where the actors are just sitting in front of the camera doing almost nothing, because nobody gave them something to do. The script is lame and the treatment of the Frankenstein Monster is demeaning. (*1/2)
