Goofs

During the scene when Sandra Knight as Trudy Morton opens the door and faints because she is frightened by the monster, she falls to the floor. After she is supposedly unconscious she very obviously lifts her arm and places it on her hip. Then once the camera moves off her and returns she is in a completely different position than she was previously (she was originally on her left side with her back to the camera, and she's now shown on her back)!

one of the greatest B horror movies
17 June 2001 | by phlflipSee all my reviews

Frankensteins Daughter is one of the greatest b horror movies of all time.It has two of the ugliest, scariest monsters ever.The murder scenes are great. Donald Murphy is great as the mad scientist. He will stop at nothing to get what he wants. I thought the music scenes were terrific, typical 50,s. A great escape. If you want horror, laughs and an absolutely fun ending to your saturday night check out Frankensteins Daughter.
