The BBFC demanded cuts to the original UK cinema version to remove shots of a brain being tipped into a jar, and according to their website the film was indeed cut. However all versions of this film contain the footage including the 1986 video release. See more »
Direct sequel to "Curse of Frankenstein" is just as good. Dr. Frankenstein escapes the guillotine, changes his name to Dr. Stein, moves to another town and begins his experiments again. Naturally things go all wrong.
The story moves quickly and is very interesting, the color cinematography is just simply superb, the set design is exquisite and the acting is all good. Peter Cushing gives another great portrayal as the Baron--it's a wonder this man never got the praise he deserved, he was an excellent actor. Also Michael Gwynn gives a good performance as a result of the doctor's experiments.
It's not really scary and there's no real monster, but the plot is so interesting you don't really care! Well worth watching. A must see for the color alone.
