Brother-and-sister/husband-and-wife Frankenstein (Udo Kier, Monique van Vooren) are a truly decadent couple: The Baron spends most of his time in his lab, trying to create two humans based on some crude racial theories as the first of a new master race while Mrs Frankenstein spends her time fucking around, caring neither about her husband's work nor about their children Erich (Marco Liofredi) and Monica (Nicoletta Elmi). And to satisfy her sexual needs, she employs promiscuous farmer Nicholas (Joe Dallesandro) as her butler - even if she neither likes nor fully understands Nicholas' socialist ideas.

Meanwhile the Baron has decapitated Nicholas' best friend Sacha (Sdrjan Zelenovic) to use the head for his male creature, as he thinks Sacha to be a regular stud - he isn't, the Baron has mistaken him for Nicholas - and the perfect mate for his female creature (Dalila Di Lazzaro).

Inevitably, Nicholas at some point recognizes the creature's head as that of his decapitated friends, and when Mrs Frankenstein shows not even the slightest interest in helping him get to the bottom of it all, he turns to the children for help, who seem to know every secret passageway and hiding place in the castle - still, soon enough, he is found out trying to sabotage the Baron's work and neatly tied up, while Mrs Frankenstein, having gotten bored of Nicholas anyways, demands the monster to have asexual session with her - to which the Baron gladly agrees, since it was thanks to her that Nicholas was fond out in the first place.

However, from here on everything gets out of hand: the male creature kills Mrs Frankenstein duriong sex, Frankenstein's assistant Otto (Arno Juerging) accidently kills the female creature while having sex with her, Frankenstein kills Otto, the (male) creature kills Frankenstein, and then kills himself.

Eventually, Nicholas, all tied up, is left the last man standing, except for the kids, but they show little interest in freeing him and prefer to continue the perverse ways of their parents.

 

Quite a departure from the previous films Paul Morrissey made for Andy Warhol (most prominently Trash, Flesh and Heat), Flesh for Frankenstein, though much more controlled in direction, still shares an anachic vein as well as sexual openness with these movies, which clearly identify the film as the work of auteur Paul Morrissey (and not of second unit director Antonio Margheriti, as genre fans never tire to claim).

Above all, Flesh for Frankenstein is a gorey and macabre genre comedy with a political subtext, but also with a few scenes that, though tongue-in-cheek, set new standards in the blood-and-guts department and are definitely not for the faint-hearted.

Still, if you can accept the gore and some wild political ideas, you will find a quite amusing and unusual genre comedy. Recommended.
