"Alright. I give up. Who are you?"
"I'll tell you later. Much later."
Terence Fisher, director of Dracula: Prince of Darkness, The Curse of Frankenstein, The Mummy, Horror of Dracula, Island of Terror, The Gorgon, and The Brides of Dracula, delivers Frankenstein Created Woman. The storyline for this picture is fun to watch unfold and does have a classic Frankenstein feel to it. The acting is above average for the genre and the cast includes Peter Cushing, Susan Denberg, Thorley Walters, and Robert Morris.
"I must tell you about myself."
This was on Turner Classic Movies (TCM) during the Halloween season so I had to DVR it. This was pretty good and fun to watch unfold. I didn't hate the premise but the acting and drama were mild and slightly disappointing. Overall, this is only worth viewing if you're a fan of the classic horror genre.
"We have conquered death."
Hardly a Frankenstein movie as he's only a small cog in the story and he's gone from making monsters to beauty queens. Really just a pretty standard revenge movie that lacks bite and is only for Hammer fans. The three upper class villains are real scum and make very good baddies, but Fisher made better.
