A young German nobleman has uncovered life's mystery and unleashed a chain of blood-curdling terrors that seem similar to the monstrous horrors of a generation earlier. Outraged, the local citizenry imprisons the nobleman and condemns him to death, hoping to blot his family's ignominious name. The townspeople now understand something their forebears did not--the young man's name is more than a name, it's the curse of Frankenstein.

"The mad Baron Frankenstein ... is married to his sister, Katrin ... With their two children they live a demented sitcom family's life; hubby rushes off to his lab and wife complains of neglect. With his trusty servant, Otto ..., the baron has constructed a heroic female and now plans to make her a male mate. For him he needs the brains of a lustful primitive 'who wants to make love to anything'. Things go awry when the baron transplants the head of a would-be monk ... instead of the lusty peasant ..., who becomes the baroness' lover, while the baron is engaged in a barren act of reproduction in his laboratory."--Verso of videodisc jacket.
