Trivia

Variety stated that Alain Jessua and Paul Gégauff "manages some facile but amiable comic situations" but that "Jessua gropes unsuccessfully for the right macabre-satiric tone." The review stated that Eddy Mitchell was "an inveterate film buff" and "no doubt had fun with the part," but that "Jean Rochefort and other players seem less at ease." See more »

Goofs

When Frank presents the dead bodies of the three exotic dancers to Victor and Elizabeth, one of the three women noticeably blinks. See more »

A Fantastic and enjoyable comedy
17 October 2008 | by la_casa_alpinaSee all my reviews

I think for the user comment posted , than the poster doesn't understand , that this is a comedy , an homage like Mel's Brooks "Young Frankenstein" , an it's a good French comedy , i saw it a long time ago , at 84' , and i remembered the enjoyable moment i have . And Jean Rochefort was superb , like always , not to mention the gorgeous female creature . I have to say that i am a big Frankenstein's fan , i watched for the first time the classic Whale - Karloff movie at the age of four , since then i looked all the versions filmed , even the Edison' film , of course all the Universals , the Hammers , the mexicans movies , the B versions , the most bizarre movies with the

"Frankenstein" title ever made , or with the man made monster or human in her plot , like "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" , an this "Frankenstein 90" film , has a good and respectable place , between all this films.
