Frankenstein (Joseph Cotten) and his assistant Charles (Paul Muller) are preparing everything for their penultimate experiment - transplanting a human brain and heart into a dead body and bring it to life again -, when Frankenstein's daughter Tania (Rosalba Neri) - whom Charles is secretly in love with - comes back from university. Interestingly enough though, she is not in the least shocked by her father's experiments - and his resulting need of more and more dead bodies - but wants to help since she too is a surgeon. However, Frankenstein and Charles do exclude her from their final experiment, when they really give their creature (Paul Whiteman) life - and it's all for the better, because the creature, with the damaged brain of a hanged murderer (Petar Martinovitch), turns out to be a homicidal maniac, killing good baron Frankenstein almost immediately after his rebirth, then escaping to kill some villagers.

It turns out though that the creature is far from completely mad because he kills primarily those responsible for his new lease of life (why though escapes me), including Frankenstein's regular gang of graverobbers (including Herbert Fux at his most despicable), and it's only a question of time before he will return to castle Frankenstein to finish what he has begun and kill Charles and Tania.

So Tania comes up with a great (!) idea: To make Charles into another creature using the body of their handsome gardener Thomas (Marino Masé) which is supposed to be as strong as the first creature and therefore has the power to kill him. Charles is understandably not all that excited about Tania's idea but since she marries him as a sort of advance thank you, he gives in, and even kills Thomas with his own hands (in a rather macabre scene: As a sort of lure, Tania is actually shagging Thomas at the time and seems to have the orgasm of a lifetime when she feels the body of Thomas slowly dieing).

Somehow, Tania's plan seems to work out, because when the creature finally comes back to the castle, Charles in Thomas' body puts up quite a fight, and with the help of Tania, he manages to kill him ... and only then does Charles realize he was only used by Tania - but being overly excited after the fight, the two have sex nevertheless. Meanwhile though, a mob of torch-carrying villagers, who have of course long found out that the creature was created by Frankenstein and now want revenge, sets the castle on fire.

Tania and Charles are still at it when everything in the castle catches fire, but all of a sudden Charles decides he will no longer be thze spineless man he always has been, and right during sex, he strangles Tania ...

Strongman Mickey Hargitay plays a police inspector who by and by manages to unravel the truth - but not fast enough to save anyone ...

 

There is no doubt about it, Lady Frankenstein is Eurotrash, and you can tell by merely watching a few minutes of it, it's sensationalist, gory and underbudgeted, it features quite a bit of nudity, much of the outdoor shots were done on location instead of the studio of studio lot, and the special effects are not always up to it. However, whether or not you like Eurotrash as such, Lady Frankenstein is one of the better films of the genre, the direction is solid, the script might be a tad silly but is actually rather stringent, and most of the actors turn in at least decent performances (even Mickey Hargitay actually). That said, Lady Frankenstein sure enough is no masterpiece, but it's totally watchable.
