Storyline

A dead and frozen Baron Frankenstein is re-animated by his colleague Dr. Hertz proving to him that the soul does not leave the body on the instant of death. His lab assistant, young Hans, is found guilty of murdering the local pub owner with whom he had an argument where he foolishly swore to kill the man and Frankenstein acquires his body immediately after the execution. Hans had been quite friendly with the dead man's daughter Christina who returns just in time to see him guillotined. Distraught, she commits suicide and is brought back to life by the good Doctor but with Hans' brain replacing her own. As memories return to her - Hans' memories in fact - she sets out to pursue and kill those responsible for having sent him to his death. Written by garykmcd

Anton: [singing] Sweet Christina, don't you cry; It won't be long, before you die; Then from the heavens, a star will fall; For the ugliest angel of them all.

Hammer Created Horror-Gold

The fourth film of Hammer's awesome Frankenstein series, legendary director Terence Fisher's "Frankenstein Created Woman" of 1967 is another creepy and excellent Hammer gem, and my personal favorite film in the series. Movies like this are reason enough to admire both Fisher as Hammer's most important director and leading man Peter Cushing as one of the greatest Horror icons in the history of motion pictures. Once again, Cushing stars as the ingenious and very unorthodox scientist Baron Victor Frankenstein, exceedingly dedicated to the acquisition of corpses for his eerie obsession of resurrecting the dead by means of rather macabre methods...

I will not give any parts of the plot away, but I can assure that Hammer fans will not be disappointed by this one. Mad science, disfigurement, body snatching, resurrection, insanity and an adequate amount of blood, suspense and eeriness, as well as some very humorous scenes, "Frankenstein Created Woman" has it all. The movie provides the typical eerie Hammer-style score and photography, and therefore maintains the creepy and great atmosphere Hammer-fans love to see. Peter Cushing's performance as the macabre Baron is excellent as always, and beautiful Susan Denberg was a great choice for the female lead. Thorley Walters furthermore fits very well in his role of Frankenstein's colleague in (mad) science, Doctor Herz. "Frankenstein Created Woman" is a brilliant Horror-gem that comes with my highest possible recommendations. Along with the dark and gruesome "Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell", this is my personal favorite of Hammer's Frankenstein series, and it also ranks among my Top 10 out of all Hammer films. This is pure Gothic Horror gold that no Horror fan could possibly afford to miss!
