While searching the castle ruins of Dr. Frankenstein for his 'Secrets of Life and Death', Neiman stumbles upon an ice cavern which just so happens to house the now ice cubed bodies of the Frankenstein monster and the Wolfman. Another great resurrection scene as our hero's are found frozen solid after their great battle in Frankenstein meets the Wolfman.

Universal Pictures, fresh off the success and ever growing popularity of "Frankenstein meets the Wolfman" went quickly to work on how to top the untopable, and they found their answer in a group effort.......that is to say a mad scientist, a hunchback, dracula, the wolfman, and, of course, the Frankenstein monster .......which brings us to the sixth installment of the frankenstein series, "The House of Frankenstein" (Universal Pictures 1944).

 

 

 

 

 

 

We begin with an imprisoned, and evil, scientist Dr.Neiman(karloff)
who, along with his assistant, breaks out of prison, desperate to enact revenge on the townspeople who condemned him.    As is usually the case with bad people, good fortune came quick as he stole the name of traveling horror show master Lampini by way of murder. 
Too bad for Neiman's accusers that, while undergoing this endeaver, he frees Dracula from eternal damnation, thereby assuring the success of his vengeance.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
 
Once thawed, Talbot transforms from his wolf state and, not suprisingly, wants Neiman to cure him of his dread.  Neiman has an idea of his own; to put Talbots brain in the monster! Even though he promised the creature to Daniel (his fritz/igor guy) to rid him of his hunchback, which is even more important now that he's in love with a gypsy girl...who is lusting for Talbot and not too keen on hunchbacks. As fate would have it, the gypsy girl is forced to kill Talbot in his wolf state, blaming it all  on Daniel before she even pulls the trigger!?!         Women!!!!!  She's not fast enough, however, and is killed in the process.
 
Disheartened that the 'only thing I ever loved' is dead, Daniel turns his wrath on Doctor Nieman whom he blames  and begins to strangle him. This upsets the strapped in monster, whom Neiman has been helping, thus he breaks his bounds in true Frankenstein monster fashion and Daniel isnt around much longer. Although the monster makes certain Daniel does get a great shot at a beautiful night sky.....as he plummets to his death by way of lab skylight. 
 
The villagers, pissed off and packing torches,  take matters into their own hands and set the place ablaze. The monster retreats from the flames, and drags Neiman from the now burning castle heading towards the woods...and the quicksand, signaling the end of Neiman....and the monster.

Or does it???

 
 



 

 

This is the first go-round as the monster for Glenn Strange, who finds his monster today to be almost as recognized as Karloff's and also happens to be the last one to wear the now famous flat-head from this classic era.
