Frankenstein’s Castle of Freaks (1974)

This Italian B grade Eurosleaze classic stars Rossano Brazzi as the evil Count Frankenstein who returns to his castle to create his most terrifying monster, Goliath, the Cave Man (Loren Ewing).

Assisting the Count in his dungeon laboratory are a horrifying cast of freaks and sexual deviants: Kreegin, the randy hunchback (Xiro Papas); Igor, the mutilated butler (Gordon Mitchell); Hans, the demented (Luciano Pigozzi); and Genz, the evil depraved dwarf (Michael Dunn) who is banished from the castle after he is caught feeling up female corpses.

 

Genz finds a group of Neanderthal men living in a nearby cave and befriends a particularly large one named Ook (Boris Lugosi aka Salvatore Baccaro). The two plot their revenge on the Count, pausing to kidnap, rape and kill a buxom young village girl along the way.

Goliath and Ook eventually fight to the death over Krista (Christiane Rücker, billed here as Christiane Royce), the sexy friend of Frankenstein’s gorgeous daughter, Maria (Simonetta Vitelli aka Simone Blondell).
