Storyline

Dr. Bob Frankenstein (Mark Blankfield) is the great-great grandson of Victor. Unlike Victor, however, he is working at a Los Angeles General Hospital as an intern under the name of Dr. Robert Frankenheimer. What his coworkers do not know, however, is that he has a laboratory, which is in B&W while everything else is in color (because it has been "drained of color", Bob says) and along with his dimwitted, two left-legged hunch-back Iggy, he intends to create the perfect human to succeed where his ancestors failed. However, as usual, the experiment goes wrong when Iggy steals the brain of a sex and food starved teenager instead of a brilliant mind, and the resulting Monster (Irwin Keyes) wreaks havoc through General Hospital.

Failed cult-movie wannabe
19 July 2018 | by gridoon2020See all my reviews

You know you're in trouble when Kathy Shower is both the most recognizable name and the best actress in the cast. Actually, there isn't enough Kathy Shower in "Frankenstein General Hospital" to save it. The film does boast one good idea - shooting all the laboratory scenes in black & white, as a kind of homage to the old Frankenstein classics. Other than that, it is boring, amateurish and witless. * out of 4.
