Someone is killing the good people of Blaustein, and inspector
Tobermann (Craig Hill) wants to find out who - and after hardly any
investigation at all suspects a handful of monsters from popular folklore,
including Frankenstein's monster (Ferdinando Murolo), Dracula (Manuel de
Blas), the wolfman Waldemar Daninsky (Paul Naschy) and the mummy (Gene
Reyes). Of course Tobermann is totally right, but the question remains who
is behind all of the monster mayhem?
Why, three aliens (Michael Rennie,
Karin Dor, Ángel del Pozo) of course, who reside in a local castle and
plan to use the monsters which they mind-control to conquer the world. Of
course, Tobermann has soon tracked the aliens down to the castle, only to
become their captive, but the aliens haven't taken into account the power
of human feelings which make Waldemar Daninsky, a good guy when he's not a
werewolf, break their mind-control and not only save Tobermann from
certain doom but also help him fight the monsters who soon kill each other
off. As a thank-you, Daninsky is shot by his girlfriend (Patty Shepard) in
his werewolf form (which is a good thing because he wanted to die anyways)
while the aliens' headquarters go up in a bang, but not before they admit
defeat to humankind ...
Granted, this is one trashy and stupid
film that lacks in budget what it has set out to do and lacks in narrative
what it fails to iron out budgetwise - but it's still endearing on a
so-bad-it's-good level, an enjoyably silly piece of genre cinema that will
certainly entertain you if not taken seriously and that is probably best
watched with a couple of mates and a couple of beers, and without thinking
too much about what you'Re just seeing.
