Lady Frankenstein

Movie Information

In Brief: Joseph Cotten must have had some seriously bad karma to earn his late career descent into schlock — case in point, Lady Frankenstein. The former Citizen Kane and Shadow of a Doubt actor plays Baron Frankenstein in this 1971 pseudo-feminist Italian sequel to the classic tale, the same year as his turn in The Abominable Dr. Phibes and a year before he would work with Mario Bava on Bay of Blood. Make no mistake, this is not a good film — but it is undeniably watchable and almost incomparably outlandish.
Genre: Horror
Director: Edward di Lorenzo
Starring: Joseph Cotten, Rosalba Neri, Paul Muller
Rated: NR

The Thursday Horror Picture Show will screen Lady Frankenstein on Thursday, Feb. 23, at 9:15 p.m. at The Grail Moviehouse, hosted by Xpress movie critic Scott Douglas.
