Frankenstein's Castle Of Freaks: A Terrible One

Count (or Doctor. They're both used) Frankenstein experiments unconvincingly on a giant with huge eyebrows in a secret underground laboratory with windows in this badly dubbed film. There's lounge-y organ music, a gigantic polka dot top hat, a lascivious dwarf, several hunchbacks, nudity-defying editing (at least in the version I watched), plunging negligees, and a mud-bath that's critically important to what little plot there is. Some key lines of dialogue include, "He's probably the healthiest patient I've ever had.", "Since I don't know your name I'll call you Ook.", and "This dress is designed to get out of quickly.". The whole affair is boring, dumb, confusing, and a little icky. If you're looking for a film that has the classic Frankenstein's Monster in it, look somewhere else. If you'd like to see a giant and a neanderthal awkwardly wrestle this is the movie for you, but you still should watch something else. I watched it at bmovies.com because they haven't added anything new to Netflix in almost forever. Here's a link:
