This final Hammer Studios' Frankenstein was a delight!!, 11 September 2006
Author: ricardosablan from Honolulu, Hawaii

I thoroughly enjoyed this final entry in the Hammer Studios Frankenstein series. The acting and film quality were good, especially Peter Cushing. His presence on screen makes all the difference when it comes to interest and appeal. The stylish Victorian Era costumes add to the imagination. Though the "monster" was not as appealing, it can be overlooked by the direction of Terence Fisher and the commanding lead of Peter Cushing. I have always enjoyed all of the Frankenstein films from Hammer, and this entry is no exception. The ending left me wanting more! I recommend it to all horror enthusiasts who love this style of horror and Peter Cushing!
