The King of all Monsters strikes again! No chains can hold him! No tomb can seal him in! (taglines)


Ygor: You have agreed? You're going to help him Doctor? You are giving him life?
Dr. Ludwig Frankenstein: Yes but not for the purposes that you think Ygor. I'm giving him strength so that an operation may be successful.
Ygor: An operation?
Dr. Ludwig Frankenstein: Yes. I'm giving him another brain. You must explain to him when he becomes conscious. *You* must make him understand.
Ygor: Whose brain?
Doctor Bohmer: Kettering?
Dr. Ludwig Frankenstein: Yes, Kettering. A man of character and learning. The monster will cease to be an evil influence and become everything that is good.
Ygor: No. No, no. You cannot take my friend away from me. He's all that I have. Nothing else. You're going to make him your friend and I'll be alone
Dr. Ludwig Frankenstein: It will be as I say or he must be destroyed
Ygor: [laughs] He cannot be destroyed
Doctor Bohmer: There is one way. By dissection.
Ygor: No not that. Doctor, Ygor's body is no good. His neck is broken, crippled, and distorted. Lame and sick from the bullets your brother fired into me. You can put my brain in his body.
Dr. Ludwig Frankenstein: Your brain?
Ygor: You can make us one. We'll be together always. My brain and his body. Together
Dr. Ludwig Frankenstein: You're a cunning fellow Ygor. Do you think I would put your sly and sinister brain into the body of a giant? That would be a monster indeed. You will do as I tell you or I will not be responsible for the consequences.

[Ludwig is talking to the Monster, unaware it now has Ygor's brain]
Dr. Ludwig Frankenstein: Can you understand me? [The Monster nods] Do you know who I am?
The Monster: [Speaking with Ygor's voice] You are Dr. Frankenstein.
Dr. Ludwig Frankenstein: You are...You are Dr. Kettering?
The Monster: I am not Dr. Kettering. I am Ygor! I'm Ygor! I have the strength of a hundred men! I cannot die! I cannot be destroyed! I, YGOR, WILL LIVE FOREVER!
