kind of dumb
Wow, this movie is just awful. Maybe it distracted war weary audiences in 1945, but it really is terrible. It's interesting how three great 1930s era monsters all show up on that idiot doctor's property. Finding Frankenstein buried in the sand in a cave below the doctor's creepy castle is ludicrous. This is a better movie than Billy the Kid vs. Dracula but not by much.
It's Dracula & the Wolfman(1945)
Dr. Franz Edelman(Onslow Stevens) steals the show as the victim of a blood transfusion gone wrong between him and Dracula(John Carradine). Trying to cure"monsters" of their afflictions can be a dangerous thing and it goes horribly wrong. Good for us as the film provides an interesting resolution to the Universal "Monsters." Dr. Edelman after being infected with the blood of Dracula, has seizures which transform him into a blood thirsty maniac, this is great stuff. Enter Larry Talbot(Lon Chaney,jr.) who is a looking for a cure and the good Dr. when not insane tries to develop a cure, and he does. In between, Larry discovers the Frankenstein "Monster" below the mansion in a cave.wow.Dr. Edelman has another hobby, restore the Frankenstein "Monster" or not ? Edward T. Lowe wrote the script and Erle C. Kenton directs. Anyway, I really enjoy this film. As much as I like "House of Frankenstein", the prequel with Boris Karloff.3.5 stars out of 5. A Guilty Pleasure for sure ! Highly entertaining !
Lets be serious one last time...

This little gem of a movie is often forgotten when people talk about Universal monster movies. It's the final 'serious' entry in Universal's 'Frankenstein series' although there are no Frankenstein clan members anywhere to be found. True, the Frankenstein Monster is back, but only barely. What you do get is a reworking of sorts of 'Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde' in the person of a 'mad' scientist, Onslow Stevens. You also get John Carradine as Count Dracula and Lon Chaney Jr. once again playing Lawrence Talbot, 'The Wolf Man'. It's a fast-paced little movie and not bad but it's by no means a classic. This movie is good for at least one viewing because it 'A Universal Horror Film' and that means there is some great moments scattered throughout.
