I Was a Teenage Thanksgiving Turkey! week concludes at Trailers from Hell with director and TFH creator Joe Dante introducing “I Was a Teenage Frankenstein,” the hurried follow-up to the American International Pictures sleeper hit “I Was a Teenage Werewolf.”
“Speak! You have a civil tongue in your head. I know, because I sewed it back myself!” says Prof. Frankenstein, played by popular character actor Whit Bissell in one of his rare leading roles. This hurried followup to AIP’s sleeper hit I Was a Teenage Werewolf hardly scales the same low budget heights but it’s fun anyway. Several plot points are cribbed from Hammer’s Curse of Frankenstein.
