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

Good acting, beautiful cinematography
31 July 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Direct sequel to "Curse of Frankenstein" is just as good. Dr. Frankenstein escapes the guillotine, changes his name to Dr. Stein, moves to another town and begins his experiments again. Naturally things go all wrong.

The story moves quickly and is very interesting, the color cinematography is just simply superb, the set design is exquisite and the acting is all good. Peter Cushing gives another great portrayal as the Baron--it's a wonder this man never got the praise he deserved, he was an excellent actor. Also Michael Gwynn gives a good performance as a result of the doctor's experiments.

It's not really scary and there's no real monster, but the plot is so interesting you don't really care! Well worth watching. A must see for the color alone.
