Peter Cushing's face appears during a very short sequence instead of Oscar Quitack's. This has been confirmed by Cushing himself and may be some kind of private joke. See more »

Morbid science returns...
8 February 2004 | by (the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls) – See all my reviews

The second entry in the noble Frankenstein series produced by Hammer and – as always – a joy to watch. Largely thanks to the performance of Peter Cushing who became one with this protagonist for 6 entire movies. Cushing perfectly knows who to make the most out of his character. As a viewer, you don't know whether to have sympathy for him…or despise him. He's a dedicated and hardworking scientist, yet he's doesn't seem to care much about human emotions and he's ultimately cruel. The screenplay by Jimmy Sangster is well-written and rather original…the development of the ‘monster' is completely different than usual and the script contains a lot of twisted and sadistic humor. The Revenge of Frankenstein has two extraordinary good sequences. Namely the entire beginning in which the Baron is brought to the Guillotine, condemned for the crimes against humanity he did in the past (The Curse of Frankenstein – 1956). This entire opening to the movie is very atmospheric, morbid and the perfect launch for a decent horror movie. Secondly, there is the magnificent climax containing an experiment-gone-wrong that brutally interrupts a high society party. This particular scene is the start for a very suspenseful finale with a few shocking parts and a terrific end scene. Certainly a must for all Cushing-, Fisher- and Hammer-fans and a nice waste of time for everyone with a little sympathy towards the genre of horror. Recommended!
