He may be calling himself "Dr. Stein," but the audience isn't fooled: that popular general practitioner (Peter Cushing) in the mittel-European village of Carlsbruck is none other than our old friend, Victor Frankenstein. No one seems unduly concerned when the patients in a charity clinic begin losing their arms and legs during Dr. Stein's emergency operations -- no one except his young rival, Dr. Kleve (Kerwin Mathews). Threatening to expose Dr. Stein as the fugitive from justice he really is,

One of the most sophisticated and intelligent follow-ups to a horror classic that has ever been put to film.
...trods off the established path of Frankenstein tropes and eschews routine horrifics by putting a lens on its people rather than on an expected cereal-box monster.
Columbia TriStar's DVD edition revivifies a good anamorphic transfer (1.66:1) from a new high-def source print.... those bold Hammer colors lack their full luster, but the print is clean with fine definition and contrast.
An OK sequel with plenty of shocks and Cushing's wonderful, energetic performance as the brilliant, obsessed Dr. Frankenstein
Easily the best film in the Hammer Frankenstein series.
