Frankenstein’s Daughter (1958)

There comes a time in a man’s life when he wants to settle down with a nice girl, but dating can be difficult for Mad Scientists without access to match.com, so they do what anyone else would do:
Sew together a lifeless female body, zap it with electricity and bring it to life.


Then have it do some light housekeeping, simple cooking, and of course, kill all your enemies upon command.
It’s Frankenstein in Suburbia! Let’s take a look, shall we?

 

The Episode

Words From Warren

I like to quote from one of my favorite reference books, the late Bill Warren’s “Keep Watching The Skies: American Science Fiction Movies of the Fifties”.  Mr. Warren does not suffer fools gladly, and does not mince his words when it comes to either praising a film or flaying it alive.

“Frankenstein’s Daughter is one of the worst films ever made. Richard Cunha’s direction is dismal, with no imagination or inventiveness discernible. The movie is ponderous, slow, repetitious, meandering. It was made on an extremely short schedule, with almost no money, and H.E. Barrie’s script is absolutely terrible, but Cunha does nothing to improve things and much to make everything worse.”
