      This was a sequel to Frankenstein’s Bloody Terror that brings back Waldemar the Werewolf and he’s teamed with Dracula, The Mummy, and Frankenstein’s Monster! It seems aliens from the planet Ummo have decided to study the monsters, clone them and release them onto the earth to dominate it as it would be far preferred than using a nuclear arsenal. So, it’s up to a local cop to make sense of the whole situation and stop it.

      (He’s not the only one trying to make sense out of it!)


      /> This film went direct to TV in the USA and later saw an edited UK version pop up on VHS.

      As a kid, I loved watching this film throughout its repeated airing during the late 1970’s/early 1980’s.

      Honestly, the first 2/3’s of the film are pretty slow, but when the ending of the film approaches, it’s total monster mayhem as the werewolf mixes it up with The Mummy and The Frankenstein Monster in two wild brawls.

      (Trivia note: The Golem was supposed to be part of the mix but ...


      • dropped due to budgetery reasons.

        ) Fun albeit nonsensical.

        And dig that go-go music score!

        Well, what happened was the USA distributor had a presold film called Blood of Frankenstein that was not ready for release and found an English language version of La Marca under the title Hell’s Creatures….

        a severely edited 75 minute version!

        Anyway….

        the film was released briefly in 3-D before finding its way to TV.

        The differences between Marca and Bloddy Terror are pronounced as 19 minutes WILL alter a film, but the main story is

        the same.

        Waldemar is bitten by the werewolf Wolfstein and is cursed to be a werewolf so he seeks the aid of a husband and wife mad scientist duo who turn out to be VAMPIRES! (Hence, the original USA title Wolfman of Count Dracula and the German title Werewolf of Dr Dracula.

        No Dracula in the film, but it makes for another cool title!) Of course, Waldemar revolts and its werewolf vs vampires AND werewolf vs werewolf as Waldermar has a showdown with Wolfstein as well.

        Classic Drive In cinema and the launching of a horror icon!
