An alien scientist and his team are sent to earth from their dying planet to exterminate the human population by unleashing monsters like vampires, werewolves, and mummies in order to inherit the earth.
Aliens from a dying world plot to conquer Earth by preying on man's superstitions. Bringing two dead scientists back to life, they use their knowledge to re-animate various monsters, including the werewolf Waldemar Daninsky, Frankenstein's monster, the mummy Tao-Tet, and the vampire Count de Meirhoff.Written by

Paul Naschy's third performance as Waldemar Daninsky (the second that was seen on theaters, being that the previous "Las noches del hombre lobo" was an unfinished film) and the only one that the character was a supporting role. The fourth would be Fury of the Wolfman (1972), although this film was released after the fifth The Werewolf Versus the Vampire Woman (1971). See more »
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.
