Movie Info

Another horrible horror from Italy, which undoubtedly marked the absolute nadir of Rossano Brazzi's career in the wake of South Pacific. Brazzi plays the deranged Dr. Frankenstein (the credits list him as a Count -- someone must have gotten their monsters mixed) who, like many Frankensteins of yore, endeavors to build an enormous humanoid monster; this one has been given the more biblical name "Goliath." Again, as is the case with so many of his mad-doc brethren, Frank has failed to plan ahead and secure a proper brain for the creature's empty cranium (finding one for the director might have been a better idea). He assigns this task to his somewhat less-than-competent servants, including a dwarf named Genz (Michael Dunn). Believe it or not, the operation does not come off as smoothly as planned, and Genz is exiled from the castle. Miffed, the disgruntled fellow plots revenge against his ex-boss, enlisting the aid of a Neanderthal man named "Ook" (credited under the quaint pseudonym "Boris Lugosi"), who likes to wear jogging shorts. None of this really makes any sense, as it serves only as a vehicle for abundant female nudity and plentiful gore. Also known as House of Freaks and released to video as Frankenstein's Castle of Freaks.

Audience Reviews for Dr. Frankenstein's Castle of Freaks (Terror! Il castello delle donne maledette)

½

Colorful. Uses the basic Frankenstein story but centers it more around his servants and throws in some cheap thrills and a fun style. The characters are nasty, the plot is loose, and the ending is stupid- perfect.

Hilarious hodge podge of characters, henchmen, sexploitation, and movie monsters. Saw this with Cinematic Titanic, a true tour de force then.

This thing is horrible. Seriously bad. Frankenstein is a terrible kisser, first. Second, all he does is restart life with some pegs and electricity. Third, there are cavemen. The good things about this movie? A young Emma Stone plays Krista. There are at least two bath scenes - one of which involves hot springs and mud while the other is in some very disappointing milk. There is a great grave robbing scene, tho, it is never clear why they steal that young lady's corpse, other than to show how the midget is a total pervy perv. Oh yeah and there is a midget. At the end, I am pretty sure everyone dies, but I am not really sure. Everyone except the evil horny midget that started all this nonsense.
