The lab equipment was provided by Ken Strickfaden, who used the same gadgets in Universal's Frankenstein films, as well as Young Frankenstein (1974). This is one of the few times the equipment was filmed in color. See more »
Contrary to the film's title, it's actually Frankenstein's granddaughter that Jesse meets. See more »
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.
