Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed (1969) Poster

Trivia

Peter Cushing deplored the inclusion of the rape scene and even apologized to his co-star Veronica Carlson.
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".

This film marks the return of director Terence Fisher after an extended absence from Hammer productions, as his films were considered too slow and emotional by this point. Fisher has mentioned in multiple interviews (and by his daughter's admittance), that this film was his personal favourite to make, along with the original Dracula (1958). After directing this film and The Devil Rides Out, Fisher would once again be out of the picture for a while due to several car accidents. His last hurrah at Hammer was to be another Frankenstein film: Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell (1974).
