Transylvania, the beginning of the 20th century: Since the Frankenstein family hasn't paid taxes for 100 years and no Frankenstein has lived in the family castle for decades, the mayor (Aldo Ray) of a small village is able to legally take possession of Frankenstein castle and turn it into a factory in just a few days time ... but wait, suddenly Frankenstein's grandson Victor (Donald Pleasence) arrives with his wife (June Wilkinson) and his great aunt Tillie (Yvonne Furneaux), and while Victor revives the family monster (Miguel Ángel Fuentes) hoping to make it show him the location of the family treasure, aunt Tillie starts the village's women's movement and wins a car race.

Ultimately, Victor has to realize there is no family treature, so he tries to con the mayor and his cronies into buying the castle from him, pretending it's sitting on a rich oil deposit - which amounts to nothing when Tillie's steam car wins the car race. In the last moment however, Tillie returns with the prize money from her car race, is able to pay the outstanding taxes and ensure the castle remains within the family ... but she decides to turn it into a home for wayward women ...

Zsa Zsa Gabor plays the mistress of grandfather Frankenstein (also played by Donald Pleasence).

 

This film tries to be way too many things at once: A fresh (?) take on the Frankenstein story, a horror comedy, a movie about emancipation, a film about vintage car races, an erotic flick, and so on and so forth ... and unfortunately, Frankenstein's Great Aunt Tillie fails on all accounts: It's not original enough to bring anything new to the Frankenstein myth, it's neither frightening nor funny enough to work as a horror comedy, it's way to silly to make its point about emancipation, the car race scenes are way too clumsily handled to work, the erotic scenes lack any kind of spark, ... 

What remains is a pretty good cast being wasted in a film that shouldn't even have been made, that's nothing but an annoying waste of time.
