Solid HammerBy a customer from Sheffield , 02 Dec 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]Far from the best Hammer horror by any stretch of the imagination but even the scraps from Hammer's table are worth a thousand Wes Craven slasher or Eli Roth torcher porn 'horrors'.
evil of frankensteinBy dooleybrt (3 reviews) from newport , 15 Mar 2009The film has not changed in impact. Its cinematography and storyline still intrigue.
FronkensteenBy a customer from Bristol , 03 Nov 2008Quite enjoyble but for me the let down is the fact that the Baron is restrained almost genial in this film whilst the evil one is the hypnotist the true frankinstein ishown on the first classic and also on the harder Frankinstein must be destroyed. I am amazed that due to his conflicting personalities in these films that he didn't get some councelling...
Back to the slab!By a customer from Plymouth , 08 Aug 2008There is a neat twist on the same old monster making theme when Cushing's Baron Frankenstein gets involved with a mesmerist at a travelling side show but - despite that lovely, rich film Hammer always seemed to use - it's formula 'Frankenstein'.
With involvement from Universal Pictures, Hammer gets to use the old square-head creature make-up but it's not as successful as in the James Whale original (from the 30s!), or a patch on that sported by Christopher Lee in the brilliant 'Curse of Frankenstein'. Plus, there is no sympathetic vibe as Karloff managed - we simply don't care.
One intriguing element is how the Baron has almost mellowed - his scenes with his young assistant show the arrogance of the first few movies in the series tailing off as he develops a genuine friendship. There are good scenes but it is less than the sum of its parts and only gets a 3-star rating because it is so much better than the dregs to come - hello, 'Horror of Frankenstein'!
excellent Hammer horrorBy crazylee (13 reviews) from Norwich , 28 Jun 2008another terrific performance from Peter Cushing.The one disappointing thing about this is film is the monsters make-up which is poor.
poor horror filmBy BRADLEY REYNOLDS from London , 06 Feb 2008In this film which is very short,Peter Cushing plays the evil baron again.
The acting is good but the plot is very poor and is a boring film.
