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

I spit on your…soul.

Frankenstein Created Woman is a Hammer Films production that is directed by Terence Fisher. Written by Anthony Hinds under the alias of John Elder, it stars Peter Cushing, Susan Denberg, Thorley Walters, Robert Morris & Derek Fowlds. Cinematography is by Arthur Grant and the music score by James Bernard.

Baron Frankenstein (Cushing) is dabbling with transference of the soul, when Christina (Denberg), a disfigured local who girl commits suicide after her lover Hans (Morris) is wrongfully executed, comes his way for revival, it sets the wheels in motion for violent and bloody revenge.

Bonkers plot and bonkers movie, but one that's well regarded in critical circles; by fans of Hammer Horror in general, and even one Martin Scorsese has it on his favourite movies list. Reworking Bride Of Frankenstein into a metaphysical based tale is close to being a genius idea, even if at times it's difficult to know if it's meant to be funny or not. The thematics most certainly are intelligent and well played out, not just the notion of transferring a peasant boy's soul into that of a former cripple-who now looks like (and is) a playboy model, but also class snobbery, corrupt justice system, bullying and of course revenge. All crammed into a 90 minute movie. But some scenes are just too daft to take serious if they were meant to be so in the first place? After crafting bona fide horror classics like Curse Of Frankenstein, Dracula and The Mummy, Terence Fisher owes Hammer Horror fans absolutely nothing. But gauging his efforts here is tough to do, for the blend isn't quite right. Moody and almost dreamlike in tone, it's also low on production values and, Cushing excepted, performed all very hammy by the overacting cast. But again, that may well have been the remit when shooting began? It's a safe recommend to Hammer fans because it's entertaining on either front, as a comedy or a dark little chiller . But personally I wouldn't be surprised to see it rated from anything between 1/10 to 10/10 across internet sites because it's really an odd piece of Brit cinema. I'll sit on the fence and go 7/10 for it.
