Paul Morrissey of the Andy Warhol stable made this pic back to back with Blood for Dracula, with an added gimmick of 3-D and more skillfully directed. Morrissey plays some variations on the old Prometheus myth. He adds plenty of gore, with some dollops of sex.

Paul Morrissey of the Andy Warhol stable made this pic back to back with Blood for Dracula, with an added gimmick of 3-D and more skillfully directed. Morrissey plays some variations on the old Prometheus myth. He adds plenty of gore, with some dollops of sex.

Morrissey otherwise plays this for neat Gothic atmosphere in Frankenstein’s castle where his nympho sister (Monique Van Vooren), also mother of his children, carries on with servants as the kids and Frankenstein (Udo Kier) look on.

Joe Dallesandro is a servant who suspects foul doings, especially when he sees the head of his friend on one of Frankenstein’s monsters and breaks up things to find he may be a victim of the Baron’s two children as he hangs helplessly by his hands.
