FRANKENSTEIN ’80 review: Man-made killer bashes heads in!

This is a cheap, sleazy and of course extremely bad Italian version of the classic Mary Shelley tale, with all kinds of crazy shit like gore, Frankenstein sex and a testicle transplant. The plot? A badly dubbed scientist (Gordon Mitchell) steals a secret formula and uses it to create a horny, funky looking Frankenstein monster he calls “Mosaic”. But the monster steals money from the scientist to buy a prostitute and breaks out of the lab to rape strippers and kill women with hot bodies. If necrophilia is your thing then Frankenstein ’80 is definitely for you, but the director went to extreme lengths to make sure this weird movie turned out as crappy as possible, so I recommend Lady Frankenstein (1971) instead – a much better erotic Frankenstein movie than this.
