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!

Hammer At Their Best
16 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The Revenge Of Frankenstein" shows just how good, with the right director, and cast, a horror film can be. Most horror film fans know that Baron Frankenstein was a lot more interesting than his creation. Hammer, wisely chose to follow the exploits and give more screen time to Baron Frankenstein. Peter Cushing turns in a superb performance as the Baron, Francis Matthews is quite capable as his assistant, Dr. Hans Kleve, and Michael Gwynn is very good as "Karl" Dr. Frankensteins' creation. This film picks up where "The Curse Of Frankenstein" ended. Along with "Horror Of Dracula", "The Brides Of Dracula", "Night Creatures", "The Mummy", And "The Curse Of Frankenstein", these are my favorite Hammer Horror Films. Sit back and enjoy. John R. Tracy.
