Frankenstein Meets The Spacemonster (1965)

When it comes to movies, you would hope that the marketing department and the screenwriter put together a title that is enticing, exciting and descriptive of what the movie is about.

“The Mummy”, for example, certainly does have an undead priest of Egypt as the main character.

“The Giant Gila Monster” will show you, through the magic of special effects, a desert dwelling gila monster that seems to be the size of a dang house.

“Frankenstein”, however seems to cheat a bit, in that the title could be talking about the Doctor, the Baron or the Modern Prometheus, as Mary Shelly subtitled her novel.

In this month’s movie, “Frankenstein Meets The Spacemonster” well, the filmmakers pretty much lie to our faces.
