FRANKENSTEIN MEETS THE SPACE MONSTER (1965) –Category: A neglected bad movie classic that deserves a Plan 9-sized cult following
The original title of this incredibly fun bad movie was Mars Invades Puerto Rico. You see, there is no Frankenstein Monster in this flick, just a NASA robot called Frank who gets damaged and then looks like Freddy Krueger with a Mohawk from one angle.
The actual premise of this movie is that Frank battles Martians intent on replenishing their nuclear war-ravaged planet by kidnapping beachgoers in Puerto Rico to use as breeding stock. Sounds like a comedy … stings like a bee!
This movie is well-known enough that I debated whether or not to include it. I figured I’d go ahead but keep the review brief.
Incompetent acting, dimestore special effects, the leering Martian called Dr Nadir (insert your own joke here), a spaceship that looks more like a Fotomat, some enjoyably goofy rock songs by The Poets and the fact that the battle between “Frankenstein” and the Space Monster, Mull, only lasts about two minutes all combine to make this my favorite bad black and white movie, bar none!
