In Serbia, middle-aged Baron Frankenstein lives with the Baroness Katrin, his wife/sister and their two teenage children, Monica and Erik. He dreams of a super-race, returning Serbia to its grand connections to ancient Greece. In his laboratory, assisted by Otto, he builds a desirable female body, but needs a male who will be super-body and super-lover. He thinks he has found just the right brain to go with a body he's built, but he's made an error, taking the head of a asexual ascetic. Meanwhile, the Baroness has her lusts, and she fastens on Nicholas, farmhand boy and a friend of the dead lad. Can the Baron pull off his grand plan? He brings the two zombies together to mate. Meanwhile, Nicholas tries to free his dead friend. What about the Baron's children?Written by

The medical profession would love to claim my achievement as part of their own and call it a giant stride forward of medicine. But they can't. It is a giant stride forward for me!

The original UK cinema version was cut by around 8 minutes on its initial release in 1973. Despite a lesser cut (2 minutes 8 secs) version being shown at London's Scala cinema 10 years later, the video certificate was withheld after the film became one of the infamous "DPP 72" list of video nasties. It eventually secured a UK video release in 1996 - minus 56 seconds of cuts to shots of the Baron smearing blood across the breasts of a female corpse and sexually caressing the body - and was finally granted a full uncut certificate in March 2006.

I re-watched 'Flesh For Frankenstein' last week for the first time in years, and I enjoyed it even more this time than I did the last. This movie just gets better and better as the years go by. A sensational mixture of gore, humour, horror, sex and subversion. They really DON'T make them like this anymore! Udo Kier had several movies under his belt before this including the hugely underrated 'Mark Of The Devil', but his unforgettable role here, and in Paul Morrissey's companion piece 'Blood For Dracula', sealed his fate forever as one of the living legends of trash and exploitation movies. This is absolutely essential viewing for cult/horror/black comedy fans. A true classic!
