Penniless, Baron Frankenstein, accompanied by his eager assistant Hans, arrives at his family castle near the town of Karlstaad, vowing to continue his experiments in the creation of life. Fortuitously finding the creature he was previously working on, he brings it back to a semblance of life but requires the services of a mesmerist, Zoltan, to successfully animate it. The greedy and vengeful Zoltan secretly sends the monster into town to steal gold and 'punish' the burgomaster and the chief of police, which acts lead to a violent confrontation between the baron and the townspeople.

Universal Monster Flavored Entry In Hammer's Classic Series
Hammer had made a concentrated effort not to copy elements of the Universal films which inspired them for fear of copyright litigation but because of a distribution deal with the American studio they were permitted to make The Evil of Frankenstein in the style of the classic monsters of the 30s-40s. The baron returns to his castle and enlists the aid of a carnival hypnotist to help control his creation (patterned after the Jack Pierce make ups). The hypnotist has a secret agenda however and orders the monster to murder his enemies. It's interesting to see Cushing playing the insane baron in a more heroic light. Recommended.
