Review of Frankensteinin hirviö [VHS]

This Japanese anime, also known as The Monster of Frankenstein, was dubbed in Finnish in an eerie manner. You can, for instance, hear the monster howl in two ways at a time! Odd. It was typical that the original audio was audible in the background.

The film in Finland was marketed as safe family viewing. Those were the fundamentalist times when even adults were not free to watch what they pleased. Many films, even total bores, were banned or heavily censored. Oh the golden days of yore, Finland in the 80s!

From this perspective, it seems a bit at odds that this film is actually a full-on massacre! And for kids!! A spoiler alert: doctor Frankenstein's daughter becomes friends with the monster, you know the score - but... almost everyone in the film gets killed !!! The monster jumps from a cliff and even Doc offs himself with a shotgun. Whaaaaat....?

If you can live with unhappy endings, check this great movie out if you can find a copy. In Finland, it was released at least twice on video. I think the censors truly slept through this one. Well, there is not much blood, but quite insane stuff.
