Critic Reviews for Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell
No excerpt available.
With moments of pathos outnumbered by the grisly and gruesome, it's a long way from the 1957 entry which established the brand.
Although the script is often heavy handed, Cushing delivers his lines with a clipped precision that brings absolute conviction to the role.
The most unforgivable mistake was the monster's get-up (David Prowse of "Star Wars" fame in a gorilla suit.) Far from terrifying!
Audience Reviews for Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell
Enjoyable final Cushing Frankenstein film from hammer Studios. Set in an insanse asylum, Dr. Frankenstein of course resumes work upon building a new human from pieces. A worthy final entry in the series.
Now this is the stuff! A real good filthy one. Not only is the good Baron treating the criminally insane in a dirty prison, but he is blackmailing the warden and using the inmates as his only personal body farm. Along comes the uppity Shane Briant as Dr. Helder, who has been convicted of the same sort of arrogant grave robbing organ harvesting. Why these ghouls rely upon town drunkards, I will never understand. Madeline Smith plays the Angel, who does not talk, just looks longingly at the various scenery keeping her bosoms well covered. Still what a fetching young girl! Darth Vader plays the monster ape man with the rotting brain of a math professor. Bad things happen. Mainly to the monster. The ending is one of the best in the series.
This horror tale is a lot of fun and moves quickly along. Peter Cushing dominates the cast as the always confident Dr. Frankenstein.
