The Curse of Frankenstein

The Curse of Frankenstein

Directed by Terence Fisher

In this classic 1950s Hammer Horror based on Mary Shelley’s FRANKENSTEIN, Peter Cushing stars as Victor Frankenstein, a scientist determined to reanimate a deceased corpse as part of his experiments. Succeeding in giving life to his creation, things turn south when the monster doesn’t behave as intended. Reviled by critics on release, THE CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN went on to be popular with audiences and was cited by Tim Burton and Martin Scorcese as an influence on their work. After the success of the film, Hammer Studios went on to create a further six sequels, five of which had Cushing reprise his role as Baron Frankenstein.

Peter Cushing stars as Victor Frankenstein in this classic Hammer Horror adaptation.

Classic Hammer goodness. Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee are Horror Icons. The music score is fantastic. 3 skulls.

One of the very best Hammer films. Make up work on Christopher Lee is exceptional.
