In the words of Bugs Bunny, "Monsters lead such interesting lives." That they do. And when they're not drinking blood, rising from the dead or trashing Tokyo, they seem to be doing what comes naturally: getting hitched and having a crop of kids. In Frankenstein's daughter, the Doctor's grandson continues with his infamous grandad's experiments and creates a hideous she-monster, a cross between a sumo wrestler, a porterhouse steak and the "brain" of a blonde bimbo, complete with a permanent wave down to her toes. An exploitation movie milestone in the monster offspring subgenre, Frankenstein's Daughter is the third of four drive-in classics crafted by producer Marc Frederic and director Richard Cunha in their late-'50s moviemaking heyday
