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
Peter Cushing and Terrence Fisher return to the Hammer Frankenstein series for one last outing, and it is actually one of their better efforts. Possibly the best since "Revenge of Frankenstein." I'm not saying it is really great, but it looks good, has Cushing back (who never missed a beat in the role), features David Prowse as a crazy looking creature (probably the weakest point of this whole movie is his look, but whatever), and works nicely as a finale to the series. It doesn't end on a big crazy note, but ends on the scariest aspect of the Hammer version of Frankenstein...that he will never stop, he continue to create awful monsters that go wrong and ending lives. It's very fitting actually. After a few weaker and downright bad movies, I'm glad the series was able to gain back just a bit of it's magic and give the series one last bow.
It's alright, not a highlight in the Hammer F'stein film series, but nothing to really say it's bad. The monster make-up is a hit or miss, while the story is composed of tired elements. The setting is pretty fresh, and there are many memorable scenes.
The baron is dead, remember? We killed him. Baron Frankenstein's first experiment was considered a failure and he's believed to be dead. He actually faked his death and has turned up in a baron waste land in a mortuary of sorts back at his work; but unfortunately, his hands are not as steady as they used to be so he hires an apprentice. They build another, smarter monster that may be worse than the first one! "He shall dwell alone." Terence Fisher, director of Horror of Dracula, The Curse of Frankenstein, Dracula: Prince of Darkness, The Mummy, Island of Terror, The Gorgon, and The Curse of the Werewolf, delivers Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell. The storyline for this picture is interesting and fairly unpredictable. The monster special effects were just okay as was the acting. The cast includes Peter Cushing, Shane Briant, David Prowse, Norman Mitchell, and Patrick Troughton. "You will not behave like an animal in front of my patients." I was very excited when I found this on Netflix. Fisher is widely known for his work with Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing making horror movies from this era. His work is inconsistent, but generally entertaining. This film has enough unique components that make it worthwhile and worth viewing if you're a fan of the genre. "I created man in my own image."
