Trivia

In 1958, the Daily Telegraph was so horrified by what they saw onscreen that they suggested the BBFC create a special new category for the film - "For Sadists Only". See more »

Goofs

When Frankenstein introduces his new assistant to his lab and shows him the brain, eyes, and arm, he states that the brain is responsible for moving the hand away from a flame; in actuality, the withdrawal reflex involves only the spinal cord-it does not involve the brain. See more »

Quotes

Doctor Hans Kleve: A masterly dissection, Doctor Stein. You must forgive this intrusion.
Doctor Victor Stein: Must I?

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 »

User Reviews

Baron Frankenstein cheats death again.
1 August 2000 | by michaelRokeefeSee all my reviews

Baron Frankenstein narrowly escapes the guillotine and takes on the name Dr. Stein to continue his work creating a man piece by piece and part by part. Peter Cushing is flawless and excellent as ever. The coordination of action and creepy music makes this one of the very best Frankenstein flicks. Director Terence Fisher knows how to tangle your nerves even when you know what to expect. This is just one of the masterpieces from the Hammer Studios.

Also in the cast are Francis Matthews, Michael Gwynn, Lionel Jeffries and Eunice Gayson.
