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 »
Hammer Films' 5th Frankenstein film is their best. Cushing brings a new pathos to the character of the Baron that is consistent with, and at the same time, different than his previous films. Terence Fisher brings an unbelievable sense of style to this, his best film. The ending is unbelievably good. However, if new to Hammer - I don't suggest you start with this one. Ideally, view the Frankenstein films in order (Curse of Frankenstein, Revenge of Frankenstein, (feel free to skip) Evil of Frankenstein and Frankenstein Created Woman. This film will be far stronger as a result. Disturbed till the end!
