getting expelled from Ingoldstat University (for conducting unorthodox
experiments and nonconformity), Victor Frankenstein moves to a college
in Canada to study brain surgery under Professor Preston. Despite Victor's
aptitude, he still has not learned how to mingle with his fellow students.
He is considered totally square and so his peers decide to play a joke
on him. He is tricked into holding a marijuana joint while someone from
the school newspaper snaps a picture. The photo get published and poor
Victor is in trouble yet again. He retaliates by pushing some booze on
a few student jocks after lacing their drink with 'brain control pellets.'
Victor now has the ability to control their every move and quickly uses
them to seek revenge.
psychedelic adaptation of the Frankenstein legend was Gilbert Taylor's
only directorial project. He left Canada after this movie and found a
home at Intercom Entertainment in Hollywood. He worked as a producer for
a branch of that company (Family Entertainment Films) and was responsible
for Pinocchio's Birthday Party in 1973.
