The Astro-Zombies

The Astro-Zombies is a 1969 mad scientist monster movie, with a sort of Frankenstein idea to it. John Carradine is in the film.

1000 Misspent Hours says, "It is almost totally incoherent and frequently dull" and goes on to say,
The real trouble with The Astro-Zombies is that Mikels’s inattentive, scattershot approach to storytelling robs the movie of most of its interest by fixing it so that we never have any idea what we’re seeing until well after it’s already happened. Characters are routinely introduced after they’ve been killed. Motives and agendas remain shrouded in mystery until after the schemes predicated upon them have failed. Whole subplots are simply forgotten about without ever reaching any sort of fruition. And through it all, the movie drags and drags and drags.
Stomp Tokyo describes it as "landfill".
