Trivia

The controversial rape scene was added at the last minute, after shooting was nearly complete, because Hammer studio head Sir James Carreras thought the film lacked "sex". See more »

Goofs

A crew member is visible just after the water-pipe bursts, about one hour into the movie. As Frankenstein enters the house and walks down the hallway, the camera pans across to the left, and as it does so, someone is seen disappearing quickly behind the doorway to get out of shot. See more »

Quotes

Professor Richter: I fancy that I am the spider and you are the fly, Frankenstein.

The best of the Hammer Frankenstein films
28 November 2001 | by (Port Talbot, South Wales,UK) – See all my reviews

I like "Curse of Frankenstein" a lot, but "Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed" is better.

Peter Cushing is exceptional as the Baron - his cold-blooded, calculating and ruthless attitude is not seen to such an extent in any of the other Hammer Frankenstein films!

Credit must also go to Freddie Jones who exerts massive pathos as the unfortunate creature - almost as much as Boris Karloff's creature! It's a perfectly judged performance.

Terence Fisher is also on hand to provide his usual directional assuredness (NB. the scene at the beginning and the confrontational scene at the end!).

One of the last great Hammer films.
