With a sudden slash of an axe, a woman named Joan is decapitated on the desolate beach at midnight. In a hellish laboratory hidden below the boardwalk “Freak Emporium,” Dr. Durea (aka Dr. Frankenstein!) drains his corpses to distill the all powerful blood serum. Count Dracula craves the serum and offers the doctor the hulking body of the original Frankenstein monster in exchange. With a blast of spine-tingling electricity they shock the monster to life and send him on a bloody spree for fresh victims. Joan’s sister sets out to find her missing sibling and becomes a hostage in Dr. Durea’s torture chamber. In her efforts to escape, she falls into Dracula’s clutches and witnesses of the monster clash of the century as the Frankenstein monster and Count Dracula clash in a gut-wrenching, limb-ripping, gruesome brawl to the bloody end!
