Another horror classic from Hammer.
20 March 2006 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

Frankenstein escapes the guillotine and flees to Carlsbruck where he passes himself off as Dr Victor Stein and makes a living as a general practitioner.Three years later,while working in the town's hospital for the poor where he carries on his experiments,he is recognized by a visiting physician,Dr Hans Kleve and the two decide to work together on creating a new artificial man.Using donors from the hospital,Frankenstein has built a new body into which he agrees to transplant the brain of his hunchbacked assistant Karl.Once completed and given life,the new creature is left in the care of the poor hospital where a well-meaning nurse releases it.As the new Karl tries to destroy his old body,a sadistic janitor savagely beats the creature and his brain is badly damaged,triggering cannibalistic urges..."The Revenge of Frankenstein" is one of the best horror films from Hammer.It has many of the components of traditional Hammer horror(secret labs full of bubbling beakers,foggy streets and of course another great performance by Peter Cushing),but it also has a surprisingly gentle monster whose story is as much sad as it is horrifying.Recommended.9 out of 10.
