Movie Info

Brilliant surgeon Dr. Frank N. Stein (John Hart) employs a new experimental technique on horribly-wounded Vietnam veteran EddieTurner (Joe De Sue), combining restorative surgery to his limbs with injections of altered DNA. Problems arise when Stein's assistant becomes insanely jealous of Ed's girlfriend and switches the DNA injections, resulting in Eddie's transformation into a lumbering monster with a cylindrical Afro and a fondness for attacking scantily-clad women and popping off people's heads like champagne corks. A poorly-conceived attempt to put a "blaxploitation" spin on another classic horror pantheon (in the mode of the far-superior Blacula released the previous year), this film emphasizes crude exploitation at the expense of creativity, leaving only a gory, misogynist mess.more

Audience Reviews for Blackenstein (Black Frankenstein)(Return of Blackenstein)

The Third in my Halloween Film Series. A 1973 Black Horror Film with a guess appearances near end of Black Comedian and a Blues Singer. But here we have a Vietnam Vet who returns to the US after stepping on a land mind and having both arms and legs blown off. But Doctor Frank Stein grows home new legs and arms and everything is going fine until a jealous lab tech screws Eddie up with wrong injections, creating the Black Monster Blankenstein. This had to be a Drive In Special, 3 Stars.

When I heard about this, I was shocked I'd never heard of it before. I mean, a title like this you'd think it would be more talked about. Well after watching it, I now know why no one ever talks about it....

This shoddy blaxplotation flick is pure grindhouse trash, leaving a black mark on Frankenstein's good name. It's right up there with Al Adamson's movies, though it did have a good score/soundtrack.
