I Was A Teenage Frankenstein had it's title shortened to simply "Teenage Frankenstein" when released in the UK. It had a slightly shorter running time as well, with British censors demanding some cuts. Most notably missing is a scene with actor Gary Conway's severed head in a birdcage. See more »
This movie features a professor who's a descendant of Baron von Frankenstein. His goal is to create a monster from dead body parts. Unlike his ancestor, he intends to create an intelligent monster as it will be a teenager. I'm just amazed at how poorly paced this film is. Nearly every bit of action happens in the last four minutes. When it does finally stupid, it's stupid and nonsensical.
This movie mostly suffers from just being boring. It features people just talking and the professor who has a girlfriend but that plot really goes nowhere. Most of the characters are just dumb. I will admit that I have seen worse, if only because there was just so little happening. I really missed seeing the robot silhouettes seeing as how they riffed on "I Was A Teenage Werewolf". What can you say about people who make the same titled film in the same year? **
