Customer Reviews

No plot, cheesy music ,unattractive women, there is nothing to recommend this movie.
C. Barthelmess
The sound is so garbled that I would like to view it as a deliberate artistic choice, but frankly I suspect it's just cheaply made and poorly executed.
Robert I. Hedges
I'm not going to be simplistic and say that people who hate Franco films just don't "get it."

Okay. This is not a Hammer horror film. This is Jess Franco territory. If you hate Franco, stay away. It should be pretty obvious by now, 175 or 180 films after his first one, that he's not going to change his style for you. You either like him or you hate him. Cringing in abhorent distaste and writing hyperbolic reviews of his films being the worst in the world are not going to make anyone take his camera away from him nor will it change anyone else mind about him or his films. The mass army of Franco haters has never made a dent in the loyal of his fans and curious admirers.
I'm not going to be simplistic and say that people who hate Franco films just don't "get it." There's nothing to get here. In LUST FOR FRANKENSTEIN Franco has created a surreal world in which a beautiful Frankenstein monster (Michelle Bauer, the monster on the sleeve and in the movie) wrecks havoc on the life of Frankenstein's plain-Jane daughter (Lina Romay). A bunch of beautiful victims litter the trail of the monster's murderous path from opening scene to the finale. Super sexy Amber Newman is a beautiful stripper who gets stripped of more than just her costume, Frankenstein's daughter surgically transfers her life juices into the monster. (Amber's on the cover and in the movie too, by the way.) It's not High Art time, folks, it's just plain FRANCO.
If you like watching European horror films that are throwbacks to the nasty days of the '70s and early '80s, then LUST FOR FRANKENSTEIN is for you. The girls are plenty and there's a blonde, a brunette, a redhead, etc. There's skinny ones, fat ones, bodacious ones, etc. It's all here. And where else can you find a stark naked Frankenstein monster who looks like Michelle Bauer? It's exploitation to the hilt.

Format: VHS Tape Verified Purchase
It is hard to believe that anyone could make Málaga Spain look so positively revolting, but somehow Jess Franco manages with no difficulty whatsoever in "Lust for Frankenstein," possibly his worst film (it's certainly worse than my previous least-favorite Franco entry, "Mari-Cookie and the Killer Tarantula.") The film is stylistically obviously a Franco production from the outset, beginning with a terrible credit sequence that, in part, explains that this film was partially backed by the University of Málaga. I sure am glad Spain had money to spend on this. The introduction explains that Dr. Frankenstein (here played as a ghost unconventionally by long-haired Carlos Subterfuge) was just a misunderstood guy, and through an incoherent and very longwinded voiceover sets up the plot for his daughter Moira (Lina Romay) to avenge him. The film stars Romay and Michelle Bauer, both of whom are well past their cinematic expiration date and who are definitely showing their age.

I would explain the action, except that it's nonsensical and the sound is so poor that it is frequently impossible to understand what's being said, not that it matters much anyway (this is not aided by the intermittent electronic voice processing, which turns a merely dirty soundtrack into mud.) The sound is so garbled that I would like to view it as a deliberate artistic choice, but frankly I suspect it's just cheaply made and poorly executed. As if the dialogue wasn't painful enough, the music is supremely lame metal from The Ubangis (who appear courtesy of Trash Palace.)

The movie takes 1% flimsy premise and adds 99% padding, and pretends to be an erotic-comedy-horror piece.

It is refreshing to find Franco still unafraid of playing with cinema. He takes the Frankenstein myth and injects his own outrageous themes into it. Moira Frankenstein is visited by her father's female creature who eliminates all sexual predators/suitors from Moira's life. That is the plot. The pace is hypnotic or should I say slow? If you have never seen a Franco film before, this not the place to start. He is preaching to the converted with this work. A good place to start your descent into Franco madness would be at the beginning with "The Awful Dr. Orlof."

I have one other Jesus Franco film with Lina Romay starring in it (Ilsa/Greta/Wanda The Wicked Warden/Mad Butcher), and in it she is young and beautiful. That film was made circa 1977, and some 25+ years later here she is in Franco's Lust For Frankenstein. I don't believe anybody who buys Franco films is hoping to see a woman in her mid-50's at youngest, complete with liverspots and vericose veins, expose herself and have love scenes. Please, if you have any common sense, stay away from this movie. I wonder if the late Soledad Miranda (Franco starlette/lover who died young) would be still doing movies if she were alive.....

Those people (like me) who buy Jesus Franco's movies don't expect high art or even much plot for that matter. However, I don't know what he was thinking about here. I love the kinkiness and nudity of most Franco movies, as well as the occasional kinky night club act scenes and music. This movie fails to capture any of that. So what does that leave? Not much and I sincerely wish that I could get my money back for this one. Thank you very much.
