Trivia

US distributor Samuel M.Sherman chose "La Marca del Hombre Lobo" for his pre-booked 'Frankenstein' title, passing on the opportunity to showcase this film, which actually features a 'Frankenstein' monster. He also believed that this film's European distributor ripped off his Al Adamson title "Dracula vs. Frankenstein." See more »

dumb but enjoyable monster rally
3 May 2006 | by FieCrierSee all my reviews

Enjoyably stupid. Aliens take control of several dead human bodies, and then go about reanimating several monsters using Dr. Farancksollen's Anthology of Monsters. The idea is evidently to study the monsters, create more, then use them to destroy all humans. The monsters have no hearts (the aliens think) and can be controlled, unlike humans. Plan 9 from Outer Space has a similar plot, I think?

They find and reanimate a vampire, a mummy, Farancksollen's monster, and the werewolf Waldemar Daninsky. The book mentions the Golem, but they don't mention him again as with Renaldo Renaldini in Das Wachsfigurenkabinett (1924); maybe like that film they ran out of money to add him.

The head alien tortures some of the women aliens with sound and lights to punish them for starting to develop human tendencies. He also uses the monsters on his own people for the same reason. The police investigate.

The Gemstone Entertainment DVD titled Dracula vs. Frankenstein is poor. It runs only 77 minutes full-frame. Particularly in the opening scene, there are some jump cuts and words and phrases drop out.
