Dr. Orloff's Monster,
By A Customer
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Dr. Orloff's Monster (DVD)
The story to this Franco film is interesting, but at the same time weak. Just why is Dr. Jekyll/Fisherman killing these women? Revenge against female kind? Visually the movie is great with atmospheric b&w photography. Nice bit parts abound in the film: the rude police inspector, the boxer/pimp, Franco as the pianist, the Spanish nightclub singer. But Dr. Jekyll is just too self pitying to generate fear. The print has a some scratches here and there but overall looks fine. The sound has crackles and a little hiss, but this doesn't make anything inaudible. Two trailers and some "deleted/alternate" footage is included. The "alternate/deleted" footage being unused takes of the first two murders. It points out how economical Franco is with what he shoots, no goofs, mistakes, every take is almost identical. Another great edition to your Franco collection!

The Spanish nightclub singer was incredible, as I remember when I saw this movie at about age 8 or 9. And I believe the women are to be drained to resurrect or restore a loved one of Dr. Orloff, at least in "The Awful Dr. Orloff."
