Terror of Frankenstein (1976)
Movie InfoTerror of Frankenstein, an Irish/Swedish coproduction, avoids the gimmickry and anachronisms which have distinguished previous versions of the Frankenstein story. This is done through the simple expedient of returning to the source, the original 19th century Mary Shelley novel. Terror is virtually a page-by-page retelling of the Shelley book, taking us from Dr. Frankenstein's earliest efforts to create synthetic life, progressing through the creation of his monster and the horrible consequences, and ending with the Doctor dead and his doleful monster exiled to an ice floe. This would remain the most faithful version of the classic horror novel until Kenneth Branagh's overproduced, underdeveloped version in 1994. Curiously, Terror of Frankenstein (also known as Victor Frankenstein) has been generally overlooked by film buffs, probably because it lacks star names or a "cult" director at the helm. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi … More
