The outlaw Jesse James has fallen upon hard times since the destruction of his famous gang. So low in fact that he and his only remaining companion, Hank, are so broke that they havenít eaten in a whole day! Jesse hopes that their luck will change when they help another gang pull a heist that will net them each twenty thousand dollars, but it isnít meant to be. Another member of the gang has ratted them out and let the sheriff know that the heist is going to happen. So instead of the outlaws springing a trap for the cash filled stagecoach one is sprung on them. Jesse and Hank manage to get away, but not before Hank takes a bullet for Jesse. The two outlaws end up at a monastery that a couple of European doctors have set up as their home. Soon Hank is on the mend and Jesse starts to fall in love with a local senorita named Juanita, but all is not as it seems. The two doctors are actually the grandson and granddaughter of Victor Frankenstein (yeah not actually his daughter go figure) and they have come to the remote American west to continue their familyís unsavory experiments. It isnít long before Jesse is sent into another trap and Hank is used in the experiments. Of course Jesse manages to escape the trap and returns to hand out some old west justice to the Frankenstein family as well as save his girl!
This movie sounds so bad that it has to be good right? Unfortunately you will have more fun reading the above synopsis than you will when watching this movie. Other than the fact that two of the characters are named Frankenstein there really isnít anything about this movie to call it a horror film. The creature doesnít make an appearance until the last 15 minutes of what is actually nothing more than a really bad and cheaply done Western. The makeup for the creature itself is really nothing more than a bald cap for the actor. The movie drags for a good portion of itís run time with inane dialog that you will test the potency of the strongest coffee available to you before wrapping up with a silly and inexplicable ending. I was expecting a fun cheesy romp with a silly idea and what I got was nothing more than an awful western. I spent a dollar on the DVD and I must say it was not a dollar well spent. Avoid this movie at all costs!
