Production wraps on ‘Tales of Frankenstein’

by Phil Wheat

Production has just wrapped in Los Angeles on the horror film Tales of Frankenstein, starring Game of Death’s Mel Novak and Wolverine creator Len Wein in his final film. The movie is based upon four of writer-director Donald F. Glut’s (The Empire Strikes Back novel) short stories published in his book of the same name:

“My Creation, My Beloved,” (a deformed descendant of Victor Frankenstein creates the perfect man and woman), “Crawler from the Grave,” (another Frankenstein descendant’s disembodied, plague-infected arm returns from the grave for revenge), “Madhouse of Death” (a private detective winds up in an old dark house filled with loonies…and a gorilla) and “Dr. Karnstein’s Creation,” (a mad doctor creates a monster in vampire-haunted Transylvania – with gruesomely unexpected results).

Tales of Frankenstein also stars Jerry Lacy (TV’s Dark Shadows), Ann Robinson (War of the Worlds), Beverly Washburn (Old Yeller), John Blyth Barrymore, Jim Tavare (Harry Potter & The Prisoner of Azkaban), Douglas Tait, Robert Axelrod, T.J. Storm and Jena Sims. The film features special make-up and effects by Emmy winner John Goodwin (CSI).

2018 marks the 200th Anniversary of Mary Shelley’s classic novel Frankenstein, so the goal of the film is to be released at that time to coincide with this momentous anniversary.  Tales of Frankenstein has an Indiegogo campaign for post-production costs with lots of great perks at https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/tales-of-frankenstein-movie-post-production-horror–2#/
