Storyline

When Dr. Frankenstein is killed by a monster he created, his daughter and his lab assistant Marshall continue his experiments. The two fall in love and attempt to transplant Marshall's brain in to the muscular body of a retarded servant Stephen, in order to prolong the aging Marshall's life. Meanwhile, the first monster seeks revenge on the grave robbers who sold the body parts used in its creation to Dr. Frankenstein. Soon it comes after Marshall and the doctor's daughter.

Trivia

The film was largely financed through Harry Cushing, but just prior to the start of filming a letter of credit from a film company was not accepted by the Italian banks. The final last-minute $90,000 needed to make the film was obtained from Roger Corman's New World Pictures. The financers of the film chose Rosalba Neri as the lead role of Tania Frankenstein in the film. See more »

Quotes

Tania Frankenstein: My dear man, you are obnoxious, extremely vulgar - and while I am certain that what you are thinking is merely fantasy on your part, I would say you spend too much time alone in your fantasies; be careful: it will soften your brain far quicker than can whisky.
Jack Morgan: How can someone so beautiful be such a bitch?
Tania Frankenstein: Depends on the company you keep.

Rosalba Neri as Lady Frankenstein takes the show
31 October 2004 | by rixrexSee all my reviews

I gave this a 5 because of Rosalba Neri's wonderful performance as the Lady Frankenstein. Actually she's the daughter of Dr. Frankenstein, played by Joseph Cotten in a routine manner, but routine from Cotten is always good regardless. The flick deserves more than 5 based upon Neri, and decent acting all around, good sets and good atmosphere. It also deserves less than 5 due to a pretty crummy monster, both in appearance and mannerisms. Makes one long for the days of Glenn Strange, or even Kiwi Kingston. It's like everyone went to sleep when it came time to design the monster, because everything else is above average. And way above average is the performance of Neri as a really sexy and domineering lady doctor. She's a 10 in this flick and makes it worth watching.
