Movie Reviews

Forgotten Frankenstein Comedy from France.
James Simpson | USA | 12/07/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Being a film fan,and having a large interest in the Frankenstein legend,having seen most film versions there are,I had to see this film.

Practically forgotten,this French comedy is not really a sequel to any previous Frankenstein,but rather a bloody and nudity filled film that melds elements of outrageous Horror of the 80s with Romantic comedy and a large touch of Young Frankenstein(1974).

In this film,a descendent of Frankenstein is still experimenting on the thing that has made his name infamous,but with somewhat different results.

The Man that Frankenstein creates is actually cared for and nurtured by the doctor,and is basically a decent fellow who,like all Frankenstein Monsters,just wants to have someone to love.

Eddy Mitchell does not quite look the part of Monster,but is likeable and does gain audience sympathy.
However,this Frankenstein Monster also has no clue of his strength and does have bouts of murderous rage every so often!
Still we root for him anyway!

An interesting plot twist takes place,wherein after the creation of the female monster(whose parts are found in a strip club),the Monster realizes he dosen't love her(she's kind of a nympho)and has the hots for the doctor's very cute girlfriend instead.

With the police closing in on him and so much anxiety building,this causes him to run away to the original Frankenstein castle.

This part is one of the most poignant moments in Frankenstein film,as the Monster discovers the old laboratory and the resting place of the beloved Original Monster(who rests in a Karloff,complete with Karloffian question? How did they manage to BURY the big guy?)

This film has an ending that should please all those FRANKENSTEIN fans who wished that things could end well for once for the Frankenstein family.

Alot of fun and a delight for fans of the genre."

"Great job Anchor Bay!!! This cult classic looks great on DVD!!! A great French version of a Frankenstien story,pretty strange indeed but still a great little cult film,not for everyone's taste!!! But Anchor Bay has always done a great job releasing great hard to find horror films!!! A+"
