Trivia

This was Michael Ripper's first Hammer horror film, though he previously appeared in several of the studio's non-horror films. See more »

Goofs

Peter Cushing's face being shown was not a goof. It was the face of the body he had made to resemble his own face that later had his brain transplanted to. It's ironic that the only successful monster was in fact Dr. Frankenstein himself. See more »

Quotes

Doctor Hans Kleve: [on seeing the Creature for the first time in its tank] Who is he?
Doctor Victor Stein: No-one. He hasn't been born yet.

Alternate Versions

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 »

Morbid science returns...
8 February 2004 | by CoventrySee all my reviews

The second entry in the noble Frankenstein series produced by Hammer and – as always – a joy to watch. Largely thanks to the performance of Peter Cushing who became one with this protagonist for 6 entire movies. Cushing perfectly knows who to make the most out of his character. As a viewer, you don't know whether to have sympathy for him…or despise him. He's a dedicated and hardworking scientist, yet he's doesn't seem to care much about human emotions and he's ultimately cruel. The screenplay by Jimmy Sangster is well-written and rather original…the development of the ‘monster' is completely different than usual and the script contains a lot of twisted and sadistic humor. The Revenge of Frankenstein has two extraordinary good sequences. Namely the entire beginning in which the Baron is brought to the Guillotine, condemned for the crimes against humanity he did in the past (The Curse of Frankenstein – 1956). This entire opening to the movie is very atmospheric, morbid and the perfect launch for a decent horror movie. Secondly, there is the magnificent climax containing an experiment-gone-wrong that brutally interrupts a high society party. This particular scene is the start for a very suspenseful finale with a few shocking parts and a terrific end scene. Certainly a must for all Cushing-, Fisher- and Hammer-fans and a nice waste of time for everyone with a little sympathy towards the genre of horror. Recommended!
