Jesse James Meets Frankenstein's Daughter (1966) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
To begin with, this one shot wonderless piece of hackneyed film-flam is not worth the time it takes to rent it from Netflix. Until you listen to Joe Bob Briggs, that is.
The commentary is a redeeming factor. In fact, it is the only saving grace. Hilarious, informative and full of the questions most normal viewers ask while watching this movie (Why???? WHAT?).
The story is pretty complex (that’s called sarcasm). Jesse James and his bohunk buddy fail to rob a wagon train of loot, and bohunk gets shot. Jesse then hooks up with a Spanish/Cuban honey, who suggests they go to the local mad scientist’s lab for medical aid. There, Jesse gets macked by two girls, while bohunk gets turned into a servile zombie. Can Jesse James stop Frankenstein’s (Grand)Daughter’s nefarious plot to create bare chested, brainless killing machine hunks? Can we care? The move gets 1 star (if that).
Skip the normal audio track. Go for the commentary. That’s the real treasure, here. It’s a hoot. Adjusts the rating to 4 stars.
Check it out.
