The Erotic Rites of Frankenstein

The Erotic Rites of Frankenstein

Jess Franco • France • 1972 • A melding of Franco's fondness for classic horror with sex and violence.

After the death of Victor Frankenstein, two figures vie for control of his metallic-skinned monster and the radical technology that created him: the scientist's daughter, Vera, and the immortal wizard Cagliostro, who is assisted by a blind bird-woman with an unquenchable thirst for blood. The Erotic Rites of Frankenstein merges Franco’s fondness for old-school horror with perverse takes on sex and violence, partly inspired by the garish adult European comics of the early 1970s.
