Horror, Science Fiction

Baron Victor von Frankenstein has suffered torture and disfigurement at the hands of the Nazis as punishment for not cooperating with them during World War II. Horribly disfigured, he nevertheless continues his work as a scientist. Needing funds to support his experiments, the baron allows a television crew to shoot a horror film about his monster-making family at his castle in Germany.

This arrangement gives the baron enough money to buy an atomic reactor, which he uses to create a living being, modeled after his own likeness before he had been tortured. When the baron runs out of body parts for his work, he proceeds to kill off members of the crew, and even his faithful butler, for more spare parts. Finally, the monster turns on the baron, and they both are killed in a blast of radioactive steam from the reactor. After the reactor is shut down and the radiation falls to safe levels, the monster's bandages are removed, and an audio tape is played back in which the baron reveals that he had intended for the monster to be a perpetuation of himself because he was the last of the Frankenstein family line.
