Judith Fontaine (Regina Carrol) is looking for her sister Joanie (Maria Lease), who has disappeared into the hippie community of Venice, California. It turns out Joanie has become the victim of Groton (Lon Chaney Jr.), an axe-wielding homicidal maniac working for Dr. Durray (J. Carrol Naish), who is really the last of the Frankensteins and is now running a house of horrors by the beach and is performing experiments on Groton's victims. One night Count Dracula (Zandor Vorkov) visits the doctor, showing him the original Frankenstein creation that was buried in a nearby graveyard. The doctor revives it and uses it to take revenge on his professional rivals. Also with Russ Tamblyn and Jim Davis (of Dallas fame). Directed by Al Adamson.

This film was Lon Chaney's last screen appearance. He died on July 12, 1973 from beri-beri and liver failure. His later years were bedeviled by illness and problems with alcohol. When he died from a variety of causes in 1973, it was as an actor who had spent his life chasing the fame of his father, but who was much beloved by a generation of film-goers who had never even seen his father.

Director Al Adamson was to die under tragic circumstances. On August 2nd, 1995, his body was found buried under the freshly laid cement and tile of his bathroom after someone had informed the police they saw someone "burying something" on the property. His murderer, Fred Fulford, posed as Adamson (for about two weeks) using Adamson's clothes and credit cards at a hotel in Florida while on the run. Fulford was convicted soon afterwards and sentenced to 25 years to life.

John Carradine narrates five horror tales, each with a comically predictable surprise ending. In the first, "The Witches Clock" (sic), The Farrells have purchased an old mansion in Salem Massachusetts, and are warned by the town doctor, Finchley, of the history of witches in the community, and the old clock which they brought up from the attic. Then an old man named Tristram Halbin comes for a visit. The second story, "King of the Vampires" deals with a slight-figured killer, called the King of the Vampires by Scotland Yard, which sends Brenner to investigate. The third, "Monster Raid," is about a man turned zombie when he OD's on his experimental drug, who returns to avenge his death at the hands of his widow and her lover-now husband. "Spark of Life" deals with a doctor Mendell (Lon Chaney Jr.) obsessed with the experiments of a thrown-out professor named Erich von Frankenstein, and two of his students who try to restore a cadaver to life. "Count Alucard" (called "Alucard" by Carradine and "Dracula: on the end credits, is a variation on the Dracula story, with the Count acquiring the deed to Carfax Abbey from Harker, as vampiresses and dead bodies start turning up. It, too, has a surprise ending unrelated to Stoker.

Lemon Grove Kids Meet The Monsters

$19.99 - Free Shipping In The USA
The three 16mm shorts that the feature are comprised of are: The Lemon Grove Kids, Lemon Grove Kids Meet The Green Grasshopper And The Vampire Lady From Outer Space and Lemon Grove Kids Go Hollywood. The first episode has Steckler's Huntz Hall clone Gopher, a bogus Leo Gorcey named Slug (Mike Cannon) and their neighborhood pals involved in a cross-country race with a rival gang. This concludes with an attack by a Lon Chaney-like mummy played none other than Bob Burns. A gorilla and Rat Phink also make an appearance. The second episode has Gopher, Slug and some other guys and kiddies running into a vampire woman and grasshopper man who kidnap unsuspecting neighbors, putting them in a trance. The last story has no Slug (sort of like what happened to the real Bowery Boys when Gorcey left), but Gopher, a guitar-strumming Ray Haydock and some children trying to save a Tinseltown starlet from a duo of bumbling thugs. Here, Gopher doesn't wear the trademark upturned baseball cap, but the reason is easily explained in the accompanying director's interview and commentary.
