The Curse of Frankenstein Reviews
Based on Mary Shelley's famous novel. A scientist, Dr Victor Frankenstein (played by Peter Cushing) is researching how life can be given / regiven to dead animals. He hits upon the idea of creating a human life by combining body parts from dead people. His research is ultimately successful, but at what cost...?
Surely one of the most well known horror-stories of all time. Modern versions are more about the aftermath of Frankenstein's creation, and turn into empty action movies. This version is probably the purest version in terms of telling the original story.
Solid plot, good direction. Peter Cushing is great as Dr Frankenstein. Good support from Robert Urquhart, Hazel Court and Valerie Gaunt. Christopher Lee gives his career-defining and -shaping performance as the creature.
