The synopsis below may give away important plot points.


  • After a nuclear war destroys the Martian atmosphere, Princess Marcuzan leads a raiding party in search of good breeding stock to replenish the population.

    During their landing Dr. Nadir, the Martian commander shoots down a NASA space capsule piloted by an android, Capt. Frank (Frankenstein) Saunders. Then the Martians badly damage him with a ray-gun.

    While the Martians crash swinging pool parties and kidnap bikini-clad girls off the beach, the terribly deformed Frank terrorizes the locals and kills in self-defense. Meanwhile Frank's creator, Dr. Adam Steele and his assistant attempt find and save Frank.

    Ultimately it is Frank who saves them by sacrificing himself.
