Customer Reviews

So bad all I could do was throw it away.
Sd Obrien
It does demonstrate a small ounce of creativity in a story that has been told over and over and over again.
A. Gyurisin
Dr. Frankenstein and his assistant create the monster during a thunderstorm.

Format: DVD
The title character in "Lady Frankenstein" ("La Figlia di Frankenstein") turns out to be the daughter of the mad scientist and not his wife. Baron Frankenstein (Joseph Cotton) has been trying unsuccessfully for two decades to bring dead tissue to life. Using the corpse of a recently hung man as his test subject (note the interesting place they pick to hang the guy), the Baron finally succeeds. But there is something wrong with the brain and the monster kills the Baron and goes off to wreck more havoc on the countryside. Now that she is in control of the laboratory, having watched her father work since she was a little girl and having graduated medical school herself, the Baron's daughter Tania (Rosalba Neri, a.k.a. Sara Bay), wants revenge. However, Lady Frankenstein wants to do more than fight fire with fire.

Her plan is to take the brain of Dr. Charles Marshall (Paul Müller), her father's old lab assistant and the man who loves her, and put it into the hulking body of Thomas (Paul Whiteman), a manservant who is mentally retarded, so that she can have both brains and brawn. The plan is that this new creation will get revenge by killing the first creation, and then return to Tania's bedroom to find other ways of making her really, really happy. Meanwhile, Captain Harris (Mickey Hargitay) is investigating the Baron's death (Tantia makes up a story about a robber) and spouting interesting lines of dialogue to the suspects. It also turns out that Tania is not the only one seeking revenge. The original monster is going after the grave robbers, so there is a constant body count in this one.

As I pushed "play" on the DVD remote, I warily wondered why a remastered DVD would be accompanied by such poor packaging and shoddy case/DVD artwork. I thought to myself, "stranger things have happened in the world of B horror movie DVD's". Three minutes later, I stood in front of the garbage can wondering how many sandwiches I could have bought at QuickCheck with the money I just wasted. The DVD was now in the garbage on top of the packaging it just came in and next to the food my kids didn't eat during school lunch. A2Z's release of this title is absolutely horrible in every single aspect. Everything from the poor quality DVD case, cheap disc case cover artwork, one of the worst picture transfers i have ever seen, and the actual DVD itself-which looks like someone printed the non-playing side artwork at home with one of the first printers ever available. If this is the "remastered version", I would hate to see what they originally had to work with. I have no idea how they can get away with even calling this DVD remastered. If anything, this is the exact opposite of what constitutes a remastered DVD. Save your money and buy a used ex-rental VHS copy, or rent the film and a projector from the library-you'd be light years ahead of the quality contained on this DVD with either option. This actually rates 0 stars with me. Shame on A2Z which stands as Awful2Zero in my book!

Lady Frankenstein is one of the films you can find in many multi movie packs due to its public domain nature. I happened upon it through the 50 movie pack of Chilling Classics.(20 bucks for 50 movies not bad) Anyway I was surprised when I popped this obvious schlock horror film into the player because it actually was interesting. Quite a good spin on the Frankenstein story. It starts typical with the mad doctor trying to bring back to life dead tissue. He greases the local authorities to get freshly dead specimens for his experiments and keeps them in his personal morgue. Soon he succeeds in bringing a cadaver back to life and it with the typical bad brain starts to rampage the town. His daughter aka Lady Frankenstein who just by her looks alone makes you a little more attentive to her scenes starts to perfect her fathers work. Her spin on her fathers work is to use newer specimens that don't have agressive personalities and supply them with brilliant minds. Soon she creates her own monster, but one by her calculations is more reformed and civilized, but is still a brute enough to dispose of her fathers mistake. That is the basic outline with plenty in between to keep you captivated. Not the best, but worth a look. It definitely is an early exploitation film and worthy of anyone that is into B horror movies or campy type films.

Ah, where to start??? After creating life, Baron Frankenstein is murdered by his hideous creation that heads off to kill those people who were involved in its resurrection, or who are simply in the way. The baron's daughter, Tania, who has just arrived from university with the help of his lab assistant, decides to go on and continue with her father's work. To keep the high reputation of the family name and to satisfy her lustful needs. Tania seductively plans to create a perfect being with the brains of her fellow assistant and the body of the slow-witted servant.

"I am, my father's daughter". She sure is! And a whole lot more! This sleazy Frankenstein imitation (of Hammer's "The Horror of Frankenstein") is beyond warped with its kinky fixations with seedy sex and red paint jobs (gore, of course) within its highly Gothic surroundings, inspires this cheap Italian exploitation picture. Albeit at times quite nonsensical and melodramatic, at least it gave the mad doctor theme a huge revamp with its lewd nature and having a female protagonist who was in supreme control with her manipulative prowess. This refreshing twist was one of the few neat additions to this rough around the edges, but above-average production. Director Mel Welles shuffles around some assured moments of suspense, array of blinding images and builds upon the morbidly vivid atmosphere. Not to mention the creeping sound effects and crazy yet some what nagging music score really made it seem cheesier, but in a good way. The make-up effects were simply okay with the ghastly looking monster going on to aimlessly cause havoc like they mostly do in these stories.

When it came to the performances, one can only say they were quite laboured, despite a few decent turns.
