While sitting in prison and awaiting execution by guillotine, Dr Victor Frankenstein (Peter Cushing) tells a priest the story of how he and his teacher, Paul Krempe (Robert Urquhart), came to create a monster (Christopher Lee) who is actually the one responsible for killing the people that Frankenstein has been convicted of murdering.

The Curse of Frankenstein, like all Frankenstein movies, stems from the 1818 novel Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus, by 19-year old British author Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin Shelley [1797-1851]. Shelley's novel was adapted for this movie by Welsh screenwriter Jimmy Sangster. It is the first film in a series of seven Frankenstein movies produced by UK's Hammer Studios, best known for its revival of the horror genre in the 1960s and 1970s. The Curse of Frankenstein was followed by The Revenge of Frankenstein (1958), The Evil of Frankenstein (1964), Frankenstein Created Woman (1967), Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed (1969), The Horror of Frankenstein (1970), and Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell (1973).
