The Last Frankenstein Movie by Hammer and Last Terence Fisher's Film, 3 September 2014
Author: Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

A body snatcher (Patrick Troughton) is caught by a police sergeant (Norman Mitchell) and he snitches the name and address of his client, Dr. Simon Helder (Shane Briant). The doctor is arrested and accused of sorcery, and sent to a psychiatric institution. There he meets Dr. Carl Victor, a.k.a. Baron Victor Frankenstein (Peter Cushing), who is presumed dead but actually he is alive and secretly continuing his experiments reanimating the dead. Dr. Helder worships Frankenstein and has studied his works and he becomes his assistant together with the dumb Sarah (Madeline Smith). One day, Dr. Helder discovers Dr. Frankenstein's secret laboratory and accidentally releases a Monster (David Prowse) in the institution, bringing panic to the inmates and staff.

"Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell" is the last Frankenstein movie by Hammer once again with Terence Fisher and Peter Cushing. This movie is also the last movie made by Terence Fisher and more graphic than the usual in a Hammer's film. The atmosphere is dark, with a nasty collection of eye balls and Peter Cushing is thinner and drearier. My vote is six.
