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? Answer...you 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.

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.

I recently encountered this gem and wondered how on earth the gang at MST3K missed it. A black and white sci fi horror film that falls into the category of so-bad-it's-good. So long as you want to yell things at the screen.

The film has two elements coming together. One is that the space program has built an android for the long voyage to Mars in the first 'manned' space flight. that's the Frankenstein part of the title. Unfortunately he's's given over to freezing up and occasionally needs a nudge. the other part of the story is a group of aliens are approaching earth. In the line of mars-needs-women they are the survivors of a nuclear war on their own world but the population has suffered and they need breeding stock-read women. ruled by a 'princess' who looks normal and her chief aid who looks and sounds so much like Jon Lovett that it's creepy it's never explained why the princess isn't part of the breeding stock.

When the aliens detect the mars mission launch they think it is an attack on them so they shoot down the rocket. The 'frankenstein' survives but is badly damaged and starts roaming around the country side, the same country side the aliens land on in their quest for women. scientists looking for the missing 'astro-robot', their name not mine, start to encounter the aliens on their quest to collect stock. Oh, the space monster is the aliens ultimate weapon. I can't help thinking it's 'be nice or we make you wear the gorilla suit" sort of weapon.

Naturally this would be bad enough for a good chuckle but the whole thing is done so schlockily. The country side where all this happens is Puerto Rico which means lots of pretty earth girls in bikinis and shorts but the bulk of the aliens are in space suits and they...
