Frankenstein and the Monster From Hell (1974)
The sixth entry in Hammer Films' Frankenstein series, this film finds Baron Frankenstein (Peter Cushing) in charge of a lunatic asylum. When young doctor Simon Helder (Shane Bryant) is institutionalized for attempting to create synthetic life, Frankenstein is delighted: now he'll have an assistant for his own diabolical experiments. This time out, the monster is played by David Prowse, who later went on to international fame as Darth Vader in Star Wars (though of course Vader's voice was provided by James Earl Jones). A new wrinkle to the old story is the Monster's cannibalistic tendencies, allowing for a number of gruesome, gore-encrusted horror highlights. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi … More

Critic Reviews for Frankenstein and the Monster From Hell
The most unforgivable mistake was the monster's get-up (David Prowse of "Star Wars" fame in a gorilla suit.) Far from terrifying!
A much more credible effort than it should have been, and better by far than its dire reputation.
Last gasp in the Hammer Frankensteins. Not as dull as some, but with a ridiculous monster
