Frankenstein vs. The Mummy is what it seems to be: a cheap direct-to-video schlock with (at best) so-so performances. This isn’t a great movie by any stretch and the only reason to even see it, and endure the lengthy 115-minute running time, is for those who want to check out B-movie material. The DVD is pretty basic from the menu design to average video/audio transfers.

PLOT SUMMARY

Dr. Victor Frankenstein (MAX RHYSER) and Egyptologist Naihla Shalil (ASHTON LEIGH) are both professors at a leading medical university. Victor’s latest grisly “experiment” is the re-animated corpse of a sadistic madman (CONSTATIN TRIPES) and Naihla’s most recent find is the cursed mummy of an evil pharaoh (BRANDON de Spain). When the two monsters face-off in an epic showdown, no one is safe from the slaughter. Can the murderous rampage be stopped and the carnage contained before it’s too late?

SPECIAL FEATURES – 1.0/5

This release comes with a glossy and embossed slip cover.

Only thing included is an Audio Commentary with writer/director Damien Leone and Cinematographer George Steuber.

VIDEO – 3.0/5 | AUDIO – 3.25/5

The movie is presented with a 16×9 enhanced 1.78 widescreen aspect ratio and is mostly muted in terms of colors and looks like a cheap production especially looking at the production designs.

The Dolby Digital 5.1 is mild but effective with clear enough dialogue levels while the action scenes do tend to top out and don’t show a whole lot of depth.

OVERALL – 2.0/5

Overall, Frankenstein vs. The Mummy is what it seems to be: a cheap direct-to-video schlock with (at best) so-so performances. This isn’t a great movie by any stretch and the only reason to even see it, and endure the lengthy 115-minute running time, is for those who want to check out B-movie material. The DVD is pretty basic from the menu design to average video/audio transfers.
