Movie Info

Euro-horror cult figure Jesús Franco directed this erotic re-telling of Mary Shelley's classic tale of terror. Moira Frankenstein (Lina Romay), the grand-daughter of noted mad scientist Dr. Frankenstein (Carlos Subterfuge), has become obsessed with the work of her ancestor and she decides to pick up the family business where he left off. Moira stitches together a female creature (Michelle Bauer) and soon discovers that her creation's sexual appetites are just as strong -- and just as wide ranging -- as her own. However, Moira's lustful relationship with the monster is tarnished when she discovers the creature has been slipping out at night for assignations with a variety of men and women. The supporting cast includes Alex Cox and Amber Newman.more

Interesting use of the video format, but basically a soft-core mess

Marked and marred by the astonishing ineptness of its every conceivable aspect.

Audience Reviews for Lust for Frankenstein

As director Jess Franco got older, his films became even more incomprehensible than usual, and this one is no exception.


Arty but boring and revolting Euro horror softcore. Franco has never made a good film, although his Dracula isn't bad.

Lust for Frankenstein disappointed me as has all of Jess Franco's work from recent years. This film at least features some cooly surreal visuals, but the plot is virtually nonexistent--not necesarrily a bad thing, but in this case it is hard to follow even the minimal plot because of the poor sound quality and the poor english dub on the version I watched. Basically a rip off of Lady Frankenstein with loads more sex, much of which I found boring and even fast forwarded through at times. Overall, a cheaply made and ultimately poor film that is saved somewhat (but only a little) by some moments of creepy/surreal imagery reminiscent of Franco's earlier days.
