When they are holding up a stage tgether withthe Wild Bunch, Jesse James (John Lupton) and his accomplice Hank (Cal Bolder) are lured into an ambush, laid by Lonnie (Rayford Barnes) of the Wild Bunch, who has convinced Marshal MacPhee (Jim Davis) that he wants to go straight (nothing could be further from the truth ...). During the shoot-out that ensues, Hank is severely wounded but both he and Jesse escape and make their way to a lonely house in the desert, which fortunately houses a female doctor - unfortunately thought hat woman is Maria (Narda Onyx), the granddaughter of Frankenstein, who has put up shop here with her brother Rudolph (Steven Geray) because the unique weather (many electrical storms) will help her continuing ther granddad's experiments - and in Hank, she thinks she has found the perfect subject to experiment on, while she has chosen Jesse James to be her mate.

Maria has little problems performing brain surgery on Hank and subjecting him to her will - and calling him Igor afterwards - but Jesse just won't fall for her because he has lost his heart to a local Latina, Juanita (Estelita Rodriguez), who is actually in the Frankenteins' employ. When Maria can't get Jesse though, she tries to lure him into a series of deadly traps, and eventually Jesse ends up strapped to her operating table with Igor looming over him threatening to kill him - but somehow, Igor remembers Jesse from way back when he was still Hank, and refusess to kill him ... and before long the Marshal stops by as well to arrest Jesse.

In the finale, naturally both Maria and Igor die while Jesse is arrrested by the law ... with Juanita promising him to wait for him.


Jesse James Meets Frankenstein's Daughter is often slammed as being one of the worst movies ever - which is a tad unfair, there have been way worse (and funnier) bad movies around (but then again most critics who mercilessly slam that movie base their criticism on the sole argument that the film is actually abouth Frankensteins granddaughter and not his daughter ... I mean, please).

Now don't get me wrong, Jesse James Meets Frankenstein's Daughteris a bad movie alright, and on a story level it is just as silly as the title suggests, and unfortunately it's not quite as (unintentionally) funny as the title suggests ... but if you love bad movies (like I do) you will still find the ocasional chuckle in the film's proceedings, the blend of Western and gothic elements is still qquite amusing, and coe of the film's inherent cheapness (like the Frankenstein's house just being a badly done painting in the long range shots) is simply endearing.

Of course, the film could have been better, but it also could have been worse, and it could have been so much better if it was much worse ... but it's worth a laugh or two nevertheless.
