The Doctor By Any Other Name Still Wants the "Revenge of Frankenstein"- Tonight!

Posted on by

Tonight on MeTV, while you might be creating holiday cookies- Victor Frankenstein is cooking up some of his usual mayhem-   having taken on a new name and a new location, but keeping his same old sinister vocation- he’s making a list- of body parts- and checking it twice- in hopes of not ending up with another monster- all leading to the “Revenge of Frankenstein”!

This 1958 Hammer horror has Baron Frankenstein escaping a death sentence, and basing in the town of Carlsbruck. He spends a few years there, practicing medicine to benefit his wealthy female clientele- some of whom seem to be hypochondriacs who just enjoy the doctor’s attention! The “noble” doctor also heads up a clinic for the poor-  and is considered a model citizen by all- except for a young visitor from the local medical board named Hans, who recognizes Victor- but makes a deal- he won’t expose the doctor’s true identity- if he takes Hans  on as an assistant in his secret experiments! Hans knows the Baron’s history and ungodly work- but finds it so exciting that he wants to be a part of it!.

He is allowed to join the Baron in his hidden laboratory, where another assistant, Karl, who is a hunchback, helps prepare for a new experiment- while hoping the doctor will see fit to give him a new, more perfect body. Hans and the Baron begin their quest to transplant a living brain into a single complete body, moving past the previous attempts utilizing one assembled out of various  parts from different victims- I mean, donors... Karl’s wish is fulfilled-his brain is successfully installed in a new body!

Things start to change when a pretty young lady, eager to do service to the poor, joins the staff of the doctor’s hospital. She ends up tending to the “new” Karl. His rehab is upset when he realizes that the doctor plans to take him on a world tour, putting him on display as a scientific miracle. Karl has no desire to be some sort of exhibit, and promptly escapes from the hospital!

With Karl gone, a new problem arises- an animal specimen that the Baron performed a similar transplant on suddenly becomes dangerous. Hans worries that the same thing may happen to the missing Karl – yet Victor doesn’t think it’s a possibility- until a series of murders begin… and it appears that Frankenstein has created another monster!

The fine actor Peter Cushing again takes the role of  Baron Frankenstein , as he has previously in Hammer films. You’ll no doubt recognize other familiar faces from the famed studio, and we’ll tell you all about them. We’ll use “Svensurrounded” to turn some scenes from the film into some classic sitcoms, as well as taking a moment to parody a certain favorite bawdy British comedian!

The full color “Revenge of Frankenstein” appears tonight at 8 pm eastern/pacific, 7 central, or, if you’re not sure of time and channel where you are, please check your local listings, or at www.metv.com . As always, MeTV invites you to join the many fans who are “live –Tweeting ” during the program on Twitter , using the hashtag #svengoolie . We’ve been trending in the top ten nationally the past few weeks! This morning, Chicago area viewers can again take a dip into the Amazon  with the “Creature from the Black Lagoon” at 11 am on WCIU, the U.

The new Svengoolie action figure is selling fast- if you want one and haven’t ordered yet- you might want to do so now! Don’t wait until they sell out, or patronize the greedy morons who are selling them at three or four times the price at which we offer them on eBay- and don’t fall for the idiots who are selling “information” on how to order for a few bucks! You know how to order them right from our store!

Join us tonight on MeTV for Hammer horror for vengeance- Frankenstein style!

Now you have every reason to be mad, Dave. I know the good news you'd gotten earlier in the week, when it had appeared cooler heads would prevail, must make this seem like a real lump of coal in your stocking. Well, there's still hope that a compromise solution can be found this weekend--let's all hope so.

My favorite thing about the solstice, as the Doctor says, "we're halfway out of the dark".

A very merry and happy Christmas to everyone in our Svengoolie family!

With the Giving Christmas season upon us my, wife, daughters, nieces & i are working the “Paws crossed” animal rescue center in Westchester county ny today, tomorrow & sunday our goal is to place at least 1/2 the dogs & cats there into forever homes, with much work getting the word out since Early Fall we have
Really put a dent in that goal, today alone we placed over 20 rescued dogs & cats into permanent family care
Oh btw we also placed 2 ferrets to a young couple, please support your local shelters and always promote spaying and neutering of your loyal companions.

Tomorrow is a big day. Besides being fresh off the Winter Solstice (officially 5:23 Eastern Time today), there will be a full moon and the Ursid meteor shower.

So tomorrow we have the potential of space aliens dropping in under cover of the meteor shower, while people are turning into werewolves. That could make an interesting movie.

Glad you made us aware of that info KK, now I can protect myself

Yes! All that and Svengoolie, too! What more could we ask?

Some celebrity birthdays of note.

Phil Donahue is 83. Can we talk about how that makes you feel?

Jane Fonda is 81. Today she’ll get a workout just blowing out all those candles. Of course, she comes from a family of actors. Just think how old her dad would’ve been by now.

Actor Samuel L. Jackson is 70. One of the hardest working actors in Hollywood.

Today’s historical highlight:
On this date in 1620, Pilgrims aboard the Mayflower went ashore at present-day Plymouth, Mass.
