FRANKENSTEIN UNBOUND / The Mount Company - 1990

It's Friday the 3rd, that mean it's time to check out this $11,500,000 production filmed in Italy, starring John (Caligula) Hurt and Raul Julia and directed by the man hisself, Roger Corman! It's a story based on a novel by Brian Aldiss, when the ultimate weapon which was meant to be safe to use develops side effects including time slides and disappearances, the scientist behind the project (Hurt) and his car are ripped from the year 2031 to 1817 Switzerland, where he finds Dr. Victor Frankenstein to collaborate with.

I have a sound clip for your approval, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button located there by our atomic lava lamp, NOW, Rufus The Gnat!.. Here's some... FRANKENSTEIN UNBOUND!

John Hurt plays Buchanan, his death machine has some problems, a time rip shows up as a huge bizarre cloud that reaches across the sky.

Buchanan ends up in Switzerland in the year 1817, and, he meets Frankenstein's monster.

Here's Buchanan's futuristic car that ends up with him is Switzerland, it looks like a converted Nissan to me. Where the Hell's he going to find a freakin' gas station?!

The monster kills Frankenstein's fiancée by pulling out her heart!! So, Victor plans on bringing her back to life, the monster is now part of the lab crew and throws the switch.

This still cracks me up big time, these orbs were popular in the eighties and nineties.

You can hear in the sound clip where Victor cries out... She lives.. SHE LIVEEEES!..

What the Hell's wrong with you, man!! You call that shit living?!..

Then, the devious Buchanan tells Frankenstein... Now, meet my monster!!.. What a SOB!

The lightning charged up his death machine, he wants to return to the future...

But, it destroys the world instead, another miscalculation by the maniac.

The monster pulls off his arm and uses it to clobber Buchanan!

Buchanan then uses his insane machine to decimate the monster, interesting effects...

Anyway, Buchanan inherits a dead world, a just dessert!.. Check in tomorrow when Eegah!! dishes out another tasty Saturday Special serving.. Later, ya'll..

Never understood this movie. It was almost like Corman ran out of film and had to end the movie too quickly. None of the last third makes any sense and the first part presents many plot points that are abandoned later int he film.

Generally a Corman fan for his scifi and other films. This one just did not work for me.
