Hammer House of Horror: The Frankenstein series., 26 February 2005

Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell (1974) was made during the waning days of Hammer Films. Peter Cushing once again reprises his role as Baron Frankenstein (under another non de plume)and he's up to his old tricks again. Why can't the Baron learn from his past mistakes? He must be addictive to cutting up corpses and trying to reanimate the dead. Maybe this time he'll learn not to mess with mother nature. Most of the gooey stuff was edited from the U.S. version. British body builder and future Darth Vader David Prowse once again makes an appearance as "The Monster" (In here he looks like a big bulky hairy Neanderthal).

A mild mannered doctor is working in a mad house. He looks very familiar and he has a knack for sutures and plasma. A young doctor is soon taken under his wing and he learns the doctor's true identity. Will the new guy be able to keep the old doctor under wraps or will he be up to his old tricks once again? Terrance Fisher helmed this Hammer film for one of the last times. Fitting how Peter Cushing and himself ended their long run with Hammer Films. The series was clearly running out of gas and ideas. The series was finally put to bed for good. We'll never see a studio like Hammer or their sister company Shaw Brothers ever again. It's a shame as well for fans young and old.

Recommended for Hammer fans.
