Aliens from a dying world plot to conquer earth by praying on man's superstitions. Bringing two dead scientists (Michael Rennie and Karin Dor) back to life, they use their knowledge to re-animate various earth monsters, including the werewolf Waldemar Daninsky, Frankenstein's monster (both played by Jacinto Molina), the mummy Tao-Tet, and the vampire Count de Meirhoff.

This movie is either fantastic or gawdawful depending on how you look at it. It mixes science fiction (space aliens) with gothic horror (vampires, werewolves etc.)
This is always a hard combination to believe. (think of Plan 9) It just doesnt work. What make s matters worse is the presentation of the film here. Its a washed out, pan n scanned, squeezed in some scenes, 16 mm print.
and is also riddled with cuts and scratches as though someone took a tommy gun to the film cans.
In its original spanish theatrical form this widescreen film must have been a delight. But it has never been shown that way here in t he US . It does have a great monster lineup, superior to Universals. But these are not the original monstres. They are immitation creations who go by phoney psudonyms. Dracula is called El Nosferatu,
the wolfman is Valdemar Daninsky from the previous years film Frankrnstein's Bloody Terror. The Mummy is not Universals Kharis, but a new kid on block called Amahn Ho Tepand Frankenstein is called the Von Faranksalan monster after his mad scientist creator who apparently modeled him on the golem of Prague.
Thats right folks these are supposed to be the "Real Life" versions of the fictional counterparts.
This is the movie Sam Sherman passed on and decided to distribute Frankenstein's Bloody Terror instead.
Its a shame too. Because Ol' Sammy probably would have reedited this into a better monster movie. Just cut out the references to space invasion (the aliens look like regular humans anyway and have names like "Vornoff") get right to the monster scenes. He could ave even added a Bob Lebarr animated sequence at the beginning explaining how the Frankenstein family is now called Faranksalan. Just like they did for "Wolfstein"
in "Bloody Terror".
Ignoring th alien invaders its the usual stuff, curses, silver bullets, burgomeisters and castles. So why throw in the E.T.s? They already added the mummy, and thats one monster more than the Universal pics. Their mummy always went solo.
Basically this is (....) , but if forewarned, you will likely have a good time.
basicly you have a pretty freaked out film with alot of cut's and missing dialog?, I seen it first on "Creature Feature" it's title then "Assingment Terror" in the early 70's and i've been trying to get it since then, I dig this flic because it has all the groovy monsters in one place at on time, and like some ppl who have talked about this movie on different site's I don't hate the Frankenstein Monster's make up but it's still cheesy
The Epic One
