review by
Mike Haberfelner

Frankenstain's creature (Scott Fresina) finds a portrait of its creature and reminisces about the many tales connected to the name ...

  • My Creation, My Beloved: The late 1800s - Gregore Frankenstein (Buddy Danmiels Friedman), a direct descendant of the legendary Victor, continues the family business (trying to create life out of patched together cadavres), but he has sworn to never kill anyone for his experiments. He's also deeply in love with Irma (voiced by Monique Marissa Lukens), a brain surgeon whom he's never met but who gives him priceless advice on his experiments via letters she writes - and it's probably better that they never met because Gregore looks hideous. Then Irma dies of cancer while by a string of lucky (?) coincidences, Frankenstein comes into the possession of several beautiful female corpses, and creates the perfect woman out of them as a vessel for Irma's brain. But when his creature (Lilian Lev) awakens, she's not all that happy with Gregore as a consort ...
  • Crawler from the Grave: The early 1900s - Helmut Frankenstein (Len Wein) has died, and his rival in life Vincent (John Blyth Barrymore) leaves no stone unturned to get his ruby ring, including pestering Helmut's wife (Tatiana DeKhytar). And when she tells him Helmut has been buried with it, he resorts to grave robbing to get what he wants, and cuts off Frankenstein's arm when doing so. But the arm might not be quite as dead as it ought to be ...
  • Madhouse of Death: The 1940s - Jack Anvil (Jamisin Matthews), a not especially bright hard-boiled private eye, stumbles into Dr. Mortality's (Mel Novak) home to sit out the storm after his car broke down in the middle of nowhere. Too bad then Anvil's brain has just the right size to be transplanted into Mortality's gorilla Gargantus (Adam Meir) ...
  • Dr. Karnstein's Creation: The 1950s - Dr. Karnstein (Jim Tavaré), a descendant of the Frankensteins, has decided to move to a castle in Transylvania with his teenage assistant Carl (Justin Hoffmeister) to continue the family tradition. Unfortunately though one of the corpses he robs to create his monster is that of a monster - with the expected results ...

Now there are probably not many people that are more knowledgable about Frankenstein in popular culture than Donald F. Glut, and that really shines through in this movie, an anthology paying hommage to different portrayals of the character from different eras and doing so giving each segment its own feel and using special sets of genre mainstays - and like all the best adaptations of the source (e.g. Bride of Frankenstein), the film never takes itself too seriously without ever becoming purely parodistic let alone moronic, while it clearly shines through that Glut and company had lots of fun conceiving the movie. Now add to that a solid cast with some especially inspired choices - Swamp Thing creator Len Wein and veteran actor Mel Novak of Game of Death fame as two incarnations of the Doctor - and you've got yourself a wildly entertaining movie. And sure it helps if you're really into Frankenstein, but frankly, there's something to like for everybody in this one.
