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.

Audience Reviews for Frankenstein and the Monster From Hell

frankenstein and the monster from hell the title is a complete mishap of propotions and dissapointment first off the film should have been called the monster from hell instead they put frankenstein which it makes it to where its somewhat more of a dissapointment when more comes around the monster supposedly the monster from hell looks very awful and lame I know back in the 70's that they didnt have CGI and other tech special effects and makeup there was only one good part of the movie pretty much the movie gets slighty better till the end but the rest of it is just flat out boring and very slow I know the film is a old hammer flick but even though the late peter cushing tried to make it better but the rest was terrible not any good ideas to it at all just lame and an insult to the old 1930's horror film frankenstein even though they couldnt have a better idea to it the screenwritter I guess has never even seen the old frankenstein at all I guess he wanted to make it horrible idea to it just why it is just awful dont see this awful horror flick under any circumstances at all not recommended for any horror fan at all during when frankenstein's birth of the horror films the original frankenstein was born and was terrfingly palyed by the late boris karloff and then after that there hasnt been a great rebirth since 1994 mary shelley's frankenstein played wonderfully by robert de niro which was 20 years after this terrible film.
