Dr. Victor Frankenstein creates a monster to show his scientific theories, but soon leaves him. So the scientist tries to rebuild his life by getting married with Janet, and retires to his castle with Igor.

Production[edit]

Frankenstein all'italiana – Prendimi, straziami, che brucio de passion! is the eighth and final film directed by Armando Crispino.[5] The film entered development under the title Frankenstein diventa nonno (lit. Frankenstein Becomes Grandpa).[5] It was shot in Bomarzo and at R.P.A. Elios Studios in Rome.[1] Crispino later described the film as "a compromise dictated by necessity, if not a mistake. It's the only one of my films that as born from a script in which I did not take part at all...However I think I can say that the movie was not completely shameful, at least in the first part." [6]
