Horror / Sci-Fi / Western (1966) 80 minutes ~ Color
William "One Shot" Beaudine's fantastical pairing of out west outlaw Jesse James and the horror genre. A companion piece to Billy the Kid vs. Dracula. This story finds the legendary outlaw Jesse James stumbling into the decrepit lair of Maria Frankenstein, the granddaughter of the infamous monster-making Baron. Maria retains the dream of her Grandpa to create a creature of her own, transplanting the dormant but still-intact brain of Frankenstein's original monster into the body of one of James' cohorts. The lumbering, homicidal monster -- imaginatively dubbed "Igor" -- begins terrorizing townsfolk until the inevitable showdown between living and undead gunslingers.
