Revenge of Frankenstein, The

Revenge of Frankenstein, The

About

For its disturbing climax alone this second Frankenstein movie from the talented combination of Sangster-Fisher-Cushing is well worth seeing. It shows customary Hammer flair in making much out of little in the way of production values, thanks to Asher's photography and ingenious use of sets, particularly the grim hospital surfed by the Baron. He has escaped the guillotine, but that hasn't dampened his enthusiasm for creation and this time he's assembling parts, including those from a murderous dwarf.

Cast & Connections

  • Actor: Eunice Gayson, Lionel Jeffries, Francis Matthews, John Welsh, Peter Cushing, Michael Gwynn

In a nutshell

Cushing's cool demeanour and grace were ideally suited to his role as the quietly manic Baron and he gives a chillingly subtle performance.
