HAMMER PRODUCED A VERY GRAPHIC FRANKENSTEIN!
26 January 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Over the years I seemed to have missed this film made by Hammer Studio's and enjoyed the realism of a real down to earth horrible monster maker, Ralph Bates(Victor Frankenstein),"Lust for a Vampire",'71 who numbered all his parts so he could construct a real to life "Frankenstein", he even could visualize a number #25 on the forehead of one of his victims, which was his BRAIN! The blood and gore was not spared from any scenes. Kate O'Mara, (Alys),"The Road to Ithaca,"'99, was ignored by Victor Frankenstein, Alys was madly in love with her master and assisted him in bed! Dennis Price,(The Graverobber), "Twins of Evil",'71 played a real Down to Earth Digger and gave everyone the CHILLS! If you love Frankenstein Films, catch this great HAMMER CLASSIC!
