Frankenstein Conquers the World! But does he really? On this episode of YHS on Monster Island, “The Tattooed Titan of Tokusatsu” Jacob Walsh and Jay Key take a swing at the 1965 Toho release, Frankenstein Conquers the World. It has all of the makings of a golden era classic – Honda directing, Tsuburaya doing his thang, an Ifukube score, and cast chock full o’ regulars like Kumi Mizuno, Yoshia Tsuchiya, Tadao Takashima, and Takashi Shimura, and even good ol’ Nick Adams drops in to lead the way! On top of that, you have an alternative ending that makes absolutely no sense! But does all that, mixed with an original interpretation of the Frankenstein story lead to a top tier film? Tune in to find out what our intrepid duo of daikaiju devotees have to say about when Frankie goes to Japan!
