"Die, Monster, Die!" directed by Daniel Haller

Movie, 1965

Curious mixture of horror tropes, from a spooky house, innocent virginal female lead, disabled and mad parents and mad scientist, to 60s’ surreal and at times psychedelic science fiction feel. Karloff hams but is possibly upstaged by his insane and damaged wife, while the dashing young male lead both looks old enough to have been the heroine’s father. Enjoyable hokum which never fully grabs attention but keeps rattling along at a decent pace and throws up plenty of oddities, including the odd genetically mutated giant tomato.
