"Frankie and Brainies"

Films: Frakenstein Must Be Destroyed (1969)

Alias: None

Type: Man-Made

Location: Civilized Area

Height/Weight: Slightly larger than that of an average human.

Affiliation: Good

Summary: Now Frankenstein wants to try out emergency brain surgery! How great! That's like putting a butcher in charge of a petting zoo. At what point could this all go wrong?

History: Baron Frankenstein and his assistant Karl decided to do a bit of brain surgery on Frank's older associate, the clinically insane Dr. Fred Brandt. But it goes wrong as usual, so Frank decides to just put in another one's brain into the dead body. A guy named Mr. Richter will suffice! And at least this monster has a few social skills...so victory?

Notable Kills: See Final Fate.

Final Fate: After an attempt to get back to his family life goes sour, Brandt/Richter decides to take out his creator, even taunting him with the choice of being set on fire or meeting the police. It ends with the monster carrying Victor kicking and screaming into the fire to consume them both.

Powers/Abilities: Great strength, as well as above-average intelligence for the usual Frankenstein's monster, being capable of speech and using complex tools.

Weakness: Weapons of great strength, as well as fire.

Scariness Factor: 2-This monster...can it even be called that? Brandt/Richter was a victim in the grand scheme of things. He only wanted to return to normalcy, and what he got was a mad doctor who saw it fit to leave him with that ugly stitch on his forehead.

Trivia: -There's a certain...intimate...scene between Frankenstein and the lead actress here. No one, not even the director, thought this was a good idea, but some idiot executive at Hammer demanded it to be.

-We just wanted to remind you that if anyone tells you that there needs to be a sex scene for the sake of it existing, especially if it involves unrequited intimacy, slap him across the face and reject it. But not before never speaking to him again.

A very much accurate tagline up there.

"It's my head, isn't it?"
The years are catching up, Victor.

"I forgot my ABCs! HELP!"
Rather than a monster doing him in, his madness is starting to do that job.

And whatever Hammer says GOES.

"Who says we have to cover up that hideous stitch?! This is my lab and I'll do what I want!"
Frankenstein: A new lord of Hell.

"We belong...bed? What was the line?"
