HOW TO MAKE A MONSTER (1958) With the success of A.I.P.’s I Was A Teenage Werewolf in 1957 (HERE), the company was tasked to deliver two more pictures in the same vein within the next six months. So, using some of the same personnel (and formula) A.I.P. cranked out I Was A Teenage Frankenstein (HERE) and – proving just how quickly Hollywood can run out of ideas when under pressure – this turkey… How To Make A Monster. The plot of the movie is centered around… A.I.P. Studios, who are busy making a teenage Werewolf vs. teenage Frankenstein movie. The madman is the studios’ make-up man, who develops a foundation that, when applied, allows him to hypnotize and control the teens – whom he instructs to kill off the new studio heads, who are busy changing the company’s direction to do away with monsters and, in turn, the make-up man’s job. Embarrassingly under-written and poorly acted, the storyline has more holes than the Albert Hall, though it’s fun to watch the making of… the making of a movie, from behind the scenes settings to old monster props from Invasion Of The Saucer Men, It Conquered The World (HERE) and other b-movies. The movie posters for both …Teenage Werewolf and …Teenage Frankenstein are prominently displayed in one scene, illustrating just how incestuous this production was. And, like you’d expect from in-breeding, the results are unoriginal and retarded. The final reel was shot in color, so the film switches from B&W just in time for the blood and fire, with an ending so quick it looks like they just ran out of time and money. And, despite the poster, there are virtually no women even in the movie, much less a damsel in distress. EXCLAMATION-MARKED TAG LINE!: It Will Scare The Living Yell Out Of You!
