What can I say about this film? When I saw the trailer, I had gone and picked the most "tame" trailer which showed almost next to nothing. Not only was I disappointed but it killed off my mood, which was very high. Then, just yesterday I was reading a magazine and The Curse of Frankenstein was featured, alongside a few other Hammer masterpieces. Going against my better judgment, I decided to downl... read more

" Date: 6/20/2021 Viewed: Blu-ray Re-watch Note: I wanted to rewatch the Hammer Frankenstein movies for a while now. While I still prefer the Hammer Dracula films, I do feel like the Hammer Frankenstein films tend to get overlooked by casual horror fans. The Curse of Frankenstein is still a great movie in my opinion. Unlike the Universal Frankenstein movies, the Hammer movies tend to focus more on Dr. Frankenstein himself than the Monster. Peter Cushing is fantastic as Victor Frankenstein be"

"23.2 Miellyttäviä elokuvia kyllä nämä Hammerit. Peter Cushingilta kova roolisuoritus. Hyvää näyttelyä ja mielekästä tunnelmaa hienojen värien saattelemana. Mitä muutakaan voi lauantaiyön elokuvalta pyytää?"

Horror Films Of The 1950's (28 movies items)

"I was none too impressed with Hammer's iteration of Dracula, so I wasn't expecting much from this, their version of Frankenstein, and really, the film that began the Hammer sensation. And while I didn't find it to be a masterpiece, this was a decent version of the Frankenstein mythos. This one focuses much more on Frankenstein himself, and the performance by Peter Cushing is what carries the film. Needless to say, he's amazing in the role. Equal parts sympathetic and blood-curdlingly evil. Rober"
