Frankenstein: Italian Style

Yes, we know that the expression 'Italian-style' is not always used with a positive meaning. And probably never as in this case does it embody its meaning of 'done lightly', 'superficially'. Well... let's face it: to the fucking.
Armando Crispino, with a screenplay by Massimo Franciosa and Luisa Montagnana, throws himself into the wake of Young Frankenstein trying to make his own version of it. Italian-style. Already the fact of following in the wake of a film that is a parody, to make another parody and above all to follow one of the masterpieces of comedy  cinema of all time, reveals that this is a bad idea.
As if that weren't enough, the story itself is a monster that takes bits and pieces here and there and ties them together with Italian-style  without reaching any interesting peaks. Not even that.
It has to be said that Crispino manages to put together a good cast starting with Alvaro Vitali as a dubbed priest with two big eyebrows and ending with the leads, Aldo Maccione as the monster, Gianrico Tedeschi as the doctor and Ninetto Davoli as Igor. The battery of women, on the other hand, features Anna Mazzamauro, who in the same year starred in 'Fantozzi', the beautiful Jenny Tamburi and Lorenza Guerrieri.

“Frankenstein all'italiana” tells of the Doctor's return to the family castle with his Janet, with whom he is to be married. But during the ceremony, the monster appears and in addition to wreaking havoc, he dies, shattering into a thousand pieces. Dr Frankestein thus decides to recreate another monster who turns out to be sex-starved and repeats the word 'iga'.
He does not create the usual havoc, but does make several village women happy as well as those in the castle, including the beautiful Janet who was waiting to get married.
In the end, however, it is Igor who benefits from the situation. Music by Stelvio Cipriani.
