Stars: Peter Cushing, Hazel Court, Robert Urquhart

A lurid revamping of the 1931 Frankenstein, this time with severed eyeballs and a peculiarly unpleasant and uncharacterised creature, all in gory colour

All new and never dared before!

Reviews (1)

It set the trend in nasty horrors from which we have all suffered since, and launched Hammer Studios on a long and profitable career of charnelry. But it did have a gruesome sense of style. (Halliwell’s)
