Trivia

In correspondence from Hammer to the BBFC dated 30 July 1958, Hammer executives say that per the BBFC's request, the shot from "Reel 2" of Frankenstein dropping Karl's brain from a pan into a jar of fluid had been removed from the final print. This brief moment was a point of contention with the BBFC ever since the film had been submitted for certification during the script stage. However, the scene has existed in all known prints of the film ever since its distribution, even on Columbia's Super 8mm digest version. See more »

Goofs

When Gerda leaves her boyfriend she is attacked by Karl after she descends a flight of steps. Half way down the steps is a bright yellow, 20th century, metal mesh litter bin attached to the wall. See more »

Quotes

Doctor Victor Stein: It should have been perfect. I made it to be perfect. If the brain hadn't been damaged, my work would have been hailed as the greatest scientific achievement of all time. Frankenstein would have been accepted as a genius of science. Instead, he was sent to the guillotine. I swore I would have my revenge. They will never be rid of me!

Baron Frankenstein cheats death again.
1 August 2000 | by (Muskogee OK) – See all my reviews

Baron Frankenstein narrowly escapes the guillotine and takes on the name Dr. Stein to continue his work creating a man piece by piece and part by part. Peter Cushing is flawless and excellent as ever. The coordination of action and creepy music makes this one of the very best Frankenstein flicks. Director Terence Fisher knows how to tangle your nerves even when you know what to expect. This is just one of the masterpieces from the Hammer Studios.

Also in the cast are Francis Matthews, Michael Gwynn, Lionel Jeffries and Eunice Gayson.
