Frankenstein 90 (1984)

When you consider Frankenstein 90 against Frankenstein 70, Joe D’Amato’s Frankenstein 2000 and the deranged Frankenstein 80, it comes up very, very short.

Directed, written and produced by Alain Jessua, this film stars French singer and actor Eddy Mitchell as the monster. I’m struggling to say something nice about this movie and then I read that the effects were by Reiko Kruk and Dominique Colladant, who did the makeup for Herzog’s Nosferantu and Just Jaeckin’s Gwendoline and now I’m thinking how much I’d rather watch those movies.

The mad scientist’s wife leaves him from the monster while he falls for the bride, but you know, if you want to make a comedy of Shelley’s story, you have the high bar of Young Frankenstein to vault over, you know?

It also has the horrible notion that the suave and sophisticated new Frankenstein’s monster can assault a woman and she falls in love with him, which made me not want to watch this much longer and I’m doing an entire month f Jess Franco, so just imagine.
