Happy Revenge of Frankenstein Day!

The indispensable Frankensteinia notes today is the 50th anniversary of the premier of Hammer's The Revenge of Frankenstein!

The Carpet of Horror!

Monster Movie Music has unearthed this obscure '60's German horror flick...

"We usually like to post these films with their original title, but for this one, we had to use "The Carpet Of Horror" because it is without a doubt, the worst crossover translation from another language title ever conceived!!!"

I would have gone with Death Rug, or better yet, Death Rug 2000.

Go now for stills and music from The Carpet of Horror!
