Review

A star rating of 1 out of 5.

One of the worst movies ever made, this poverty-stricken camp turkey provides loads of unintentional laughs thanks to misplaced rock music, obvious stock footage and go-go girls being abducted. Shot in Puerto Rico, it has nothing whatsoever to do with the Frankenstein legend. Evil space Princess Marcuzan (Marilyn Hanold) and her effeminate gnome assistant Nadir (Lou Cutell) land on earth to capture fresh virgins for their dying planet. Android astronaut Saunders (Robert Reilly) crash lands near them, becomes a crazed killer when short-circuited by their ray gun, and battles their pet monster Mull to free the kidnapped girls. It's so crudely made that director Robert Gaffney's juvenile heap resembles a home movie, and the startling Freudian terms bandied around by Nadir seem to belong to a different film altogether.
