Not so bad!Even very good!
31 July 2005 | by chafdenegSee all my reviews

I remember seeing it for the first time in 1977,thursday august 5,1:oopm.I was enthralled,terrified and nauseous(especially at the brain in the plastic recipient).And the bloody stitches around the head of Cal Bolder.Other memories of mine include the mat-painting of the "Frankenstein's castle/western farm".I recently had the chance to view it again on a local t.v.station,in the middle of a night.And,lo and behold,i will order a DVD version of it.Because 38 years later,i still have the same reactions i felt about this movie,not hampered after all these years.Come on!It's a piece by veteran horror genre director William Beaudine.John Lupton,Cal Bolder and Narda Onyx did a good acting job in this "not so worst,not so bad,still watchable horror/western classic.
