Editorial Reviews

During a solo space mission to Mars, NASA astronaut Col. Frank Saunders (Robert Reilly) – who happens to be an experimental android-- is shot down by an alien warship. Frank survives the attack, crash-landing on Puerto Rico. The space aliens—led by Princess Marcuzan (Marilyn Hanold) and her putty-eared lieutenant, Dr. Nadir (Lou Cutell) -- decide he must die, so they give chase, but manage to only disfigure him before commencing with their ultimate endeavor: steal bikini-clad young women to re-populate their nuclear-ravaged planet! Meanwhile, scientists Adam Steele (James Karen) and Karen Grant (Nancy Marshall) leisurely tour the scenery on a Vespa motor scooter in search of their creation, Frank, who’s busy terrorizing the coastal populace. The marauding aliens crash a swingin’ pool party and steal the girls, who are brought aboard their ship to be separated by their lusty attributes and then further frightened by a hairy, skull-faced space monster… In the overcrowded pantheon of bad but deliriously fun movies, few surpass this science fiction drive-in staple.

5.0 out of 5 stars absolutely wonderful garbage June 3, 2006
I've lusted after this movie for a long time now after reading about it in my movie books and now, finally, thanks to Dark Sky Films, it's on DVD. Was I disappointed now that I've finally gotten to see it? Nope, not one bit. Here's the plot, such as it is: Alien beings, hanging out in space, keep blowing up earth's space shots because they think they're missles sent to destroy them. Earth doesn't get it. They send up a robot, named Frank, who looks human but underneath that nice head of hair he's vacuum tubes and capacitors. The aliens shoot him too but he escapes in a capsule and lands in Puerto Rico. The Aliens land there too & their mission is to capture babes to help bring back their population which was destroyed in a nuclear war. Frank tangles with aliens and gets most of his face blown off after which he looks like a monster. Alien dudes are running amok collecting bikinied babes. The babes get dragged back to the space ship, and put on conveyer belts, covered with sheer curtains (like your mom had in the living room) and sent off somewhere else in the spaceship while the leaders look on and nod in approval. Is this weird? You bet. Is this cheesy? Also affirmative. But is it FUN? Oh yeah, it is. Lots of cool music in the background also adds to the charm. This will most likely be enjoyed the most by drive-in and bad cinema enthusiasts, like myself, but it's a fun little time capsule of sorts and even has a very young James Karen from "Return of the Living Dead". Check it out. 5 out of 5.

Pop quiz hotshot...your home planet, devastated by atomic war, is now inhabited by a handful of men and almost no women...what do you do? hop in your spacecraft and scour the universe for hot babes in the hopes of abducting them and returning home to repopulate your world of course, and that's pretty much the main gist behind the film Frankenstein Meets the Space Monster (1965), directed by Robert Gaffney, who would later go on to direct photography for part of Stanley Kubrik's 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968). Starring in the film is James Karen (Poltergeist, The Return of the Living Dead), former playmate (June '59) Marilyn Hanold (The Brain That Wouldn't Die), and Lou Cutell (Little Big Man). Also appearing is Nancy Marshall (Asylum of Satan), David Kerman (Murder, Inc.), Robert Reilly (To Save a Child), and Bruce Glover (Diamonds Are Forever, Chinatown) in a dual role as a Martian patrolman and also the space monster named Mull.

As the movie begins we see some Martians, led by the comely Princess Marcuzan (Hanold), along with her bald-headed, smirking, often effeminate brainiac sidekick/scientist named Doctor Nadir (Cutell), cruising about in outer space, headed towards Earth. Once in orbit they perceive various rocket launches by NASA to be missile attacks and proceed to use a force field to destroy them. NASA, unaware of the Martians, decide on a new approach by sending a rocket into space piloted by a human looking robot (one that can feel pain, for some reason), created by Dr. Adam Steele (Karen) and his assistant Karen Grant (Marshall), to eliminate the possibility of human error, I guess.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pitch Perfect B-Movie Madness June 19, 2006
I had a great time with this one. This film does everything wrong--exactly right. If anything, this served as a primer for later parodies of the genre, since so many of the great cliches are here: Bad editing, bad acting, bad special effects, bad plot. Oddly enough, some of sequences border on avante garde in the way they layer image and sound. An interesting, enjoyable (but not good) film.

"Do your eyes dare witness total terror?!?"

Grab the popcorn, and prepare for a wild ride! "Frankenstein Meets the Space Monster" is a hilarious 1965 sci-fi flick about astronauts, Martians, nuclear war, and stock footage! The film starts with a wacky backstory about a half human-half android astronaut on a trip to mars, but quickly finds itself in Puerto Rico. Featuring tons of stock footage courtesy of NASA and the US military, it turns out that a Martian ship under the command of the strict but beautiful Princess Marcuzan (Marilyn Hanold) and proto-Vulcan Dr. Nadir (Lou Cutell, whose bald head and ear appliances are beyond hilarious) are shooting down the spaceships from Earth. The android astronaut ejects (is that wise in space?), and the aliens pursue him and land their ridiculous spaceship which looks like a piece of Buckminster Fuller architecture on stilts. The aliens succeed in burning half his face off, but are otherwise stymied. The now Astro-Frankenstein (Robert Reilly) becomes a murderer, and begins his random monster trek, killing randomly when the urge strikes him.

The film then explains that the reason the Martians came to earth in the first place is that their own world was destroyed by nuclear war, and there are no females left for breeding: humans are obviously required for breeding stock, and women in bikinis are most highly prized: no wonder why they landed in Puerto Rico. The hoards of aliens are stunning to behold; I am particularly entertained by the scene where they storm the pool party.

Along the way there is much padding when a cute couple from NASA, Dr. Adam Steele (James Karen), and Karen Grant (Nancy Marshall) explores Puerto Rico on a Vespa scooter: you have to get the running time up to 79 minutes somehow!
