Premiering in Los Angeles on October 24th, the TALES OF FRANKENSTEIN anthology will be released on DVD and VOD on October 19th. The film stars Mel Novak (Bruce Lee’s Game of Death, An Eye for an Eye opposite Chuck Norris, Samurai Cop 2: Deadly Vengeance), Jerry Lacy (TV’s Dark Shadows), Ann Robinson (War of the Worlds), Jim Tavare (Harry Potter & The Prisoner of Azkaban), T.J. Storm (Punisher: War Zone) and Len Wein (Wolverine and Swampthing creator) in his final film.
I personally find this film to be somewhat interesting to me because I have interviewed writer and director Donald F. Glut, as well as reviewed a number of his B-Films involving dinosaurs, breasts, buns, and blood. Mr. Glut also wrote the “The Empire Strikes Back” novelization, as well as the four short stories of the same name published in his book that this anthology is based upon.
“My Creation, My Beloved,” (a deformed descendant of Victor Frankenstein creates the perfect man and woman), “Crawler from the Grave,” (another Frankenstein descendant’s disembodied, plague-infected arm returns from the grave for revenge), “Madhouse of Death” (a private detective winds up in an old dark house filled with loonies…and a gorilla) and “Dr. Karnstein’s Creation,” (a mad doctor creates a monster in vampire-haunted Transylvania – with gruesomely unexpected results).
This film also stars Beverly Washburn (Old Yeller), John Blyth Barrymore, Douglas Tait, Robert Axelrod (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers) and Jena Sims. The film features special make-up and effects by Emmy winner John Goodwin (CSI).
2018 marks the 200th Anniversary of Mary Shelley’s classic novel Frankenstein so the film will be released this fall to coincide with this momentous anniversary.
