Frankenstein vs. The Mummy
Frankenstein vs. The Mummy is an admirable attempt at capturing the glory days of the Universal and Hammer monster movies. Weak acting and lulls in action work against the film as a whole. I do have to give credit to Writer / Director Damien Leone for trying to build up the story and character motivations, but here it only serves to slow down and put off what everyone watches the movie for in the first place. We want to see the big showdown between Frankenstein’s Monster and the Mummy, which is way too short when it finally arrives. In the movie’s defense, there are some great gory practical effects and a few bloodcurdling scenes that made me cringe.
