Storyline

Viktor Frankenstein, expelled from Ingoldstat U for doing weird experiments and for acting a bit looney, goes to college in Canada to study brain control under Prof. Preston. Campus radicals frame Viktor (photographed holding a joint) in an attempt to discredit both Preston and the Dean and Viktor is once again expelled. Vik injects Tae Kwan Do expert Tony with his new brain control pellets and soon Tony becomes an instrument of revenge, beating radicals to death, drowning the photographer in a developing tray, and karate-chopping a reporter in the throat to name a few. But why won't Viktor remove his clothes when doing his often naked girlfriend and who is the "real Frankenstein"? Written by Charlie Phelps <chollyp@flash.net>

(Pretty) funny and (sort of) entertaining
2 March 2008 | by (Denver, Colorado and Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

After being kicked out of his Austrian university for fencing (don't even ask),a descendant of Frankenstein ends up in a Canadian university during the turbulent late 1960's era. It's fashionable today to mock this period its and counter-culture campus protesters, but at least in the US there were real issues involved then like civil rights and the Vietnam War. If this movie is to be believed, the campus protesters in Canada were nothing but a a bunch of neo-Luddites upset about things like the proliferation of computers(!) This does kind of tie into the bizarro plot, however, because the undergraduate Frankenstein (he's not technically a doctor here) is competing with his professor on mind-control experiments involving the "tri-genital" area of the brain (I don't even want to know what that is). Frankenstein tests his device out first on his girlfriends' pets, causing the cat to somehow kill the dog. Then, after he ends up in the school paper for a marijuana scandal and gets expelled from school, he uses his device on dim-witted a tae kwan do expert and forces him to murder all his enemies. There's a real hairpin twist at the end though that calls into question about everything that's happened previously.

This movie is obviously meant to be less than serious, but how much of the humor is intentional is hard to tell. Obviously, the plot is completely absurd. The funniest scenes might be the ones with Frankenstein and his sexy blonde girlfriend. The only reason this makes it as a "sexploitation" film is because the girlfriend typically wears only sunglasses and the (same) pair of panties regardless of whether they are in bed, in their living room, or outside. This is quite a contrast to Frankenstein who refuses to take his clothes off ever! (There's a very weird explanation for this later). She also has ridiculous bimboesque dialogue even by bimbo standards, while he is given to pompous speeches and reciting poetry. "What is wrong with the world?" the girlfriend asks at one point, and Frankenstein goes off quoting Wordsworth, "The world is too much with us. . ." which under the circumstances is apropos of nothing (but is pretty funny). She is also hilariously blase when he pits her pets against each other in a duel to the death via mind control.

You get the idea this is a very strange movie, which may or not appeal to everybody, but I found it (pretty) funny and (sort of) entertaining.
