Teenage Frankenstein, The (1959)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Dr. Frankenstein is about to have a noose put around his neck for his crimes but a stranger shows up at the last minute and rescues him. It turns out this stranger is actually Larry Talbot and he wants to doctor to cure him from becoming a werewolf again. While this is going on the Monster finds himself with a blind hermit who tries to help him. This here is certainly one of the more ambitious monster movies that Glut had made up to this point. The first minute of the movie is just a very long credit sequence where we get about eight different title cards and all of them have Glut's name on them so obvious the director-writer-editor was very happy of what he created. I thought overall this was a pretty entertaining film even though parts of it started to drag. Running just over 12-minutes allows us to get quite a bit of footage in including a flashback sequence where Talbot talks about his dealings with Dracula. For the most part the monsters look good and the hermit sequence from BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN is put to good use. The werewolf make up is certainly better than what we've seen previously in these Glut productions.
