Unlike the cheesily entertaining Blood For Dracula, this mishmash version of Mary Shelley’s story is a giant bore and its gory scenes far too offputting. plays yet another loopy baron who lives a sterile life with his wife and children while cooking up the creepiest experiments in his castle laboratory. Of course,  is also on hand to provide lots of gratuitous sex and nudity, though again even his segments lack the relish in the other superior horror flick. Unfortunately, he ends up becoming part of the crazy baron’s plans to create a new human race with carelessly assembled body parts. No fun, though ‘s performance is hilarious enough to make it worthwhile.

The Criterion Collection:  #27
