The Revenge of Frankenstein Reviews

Empire Magazine

Expertly executed example of a golden time in British cinema - one to savour.

Cushing's cool demeanour and grace were ideally suited to his role as the quietly manic Baron and he gives a chillingly subtle performance.

Surpassed in its shocking effects perhaps only by Warhol's version.

Antagony & Ecstasy

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.

In one of his best performances, Cushing plays on the ambiguity of the central character, so that the Baron becomes a kind of Wildean martyr, alternating between noble defiance and detached cruelty.

Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

An OK sequel with plenty of shocks and Cushing's wonderful, energetic performance as the brilliant, obsessed Dr. Frankenstein

There was a staid quality about the film that kept it from being as gripping as it could have been.
