Storyline

A dead and frozen Baron Frankenstein is re-animated by his colleague Dr. Hertz proving to him that the soul does not leave the body on the instant of death. His lab assistant, young Hans, is found guilty of murdering the local pub owner with whom he had an argument where he foolishly swore to kill the man and Frankenstein acquires his body immediately after the execution. Hans had been quite friendly with the dead man's daughter Christina who returns just in time to see him guillotined. Distraught, she commits suicide and is brought back to life by the good Doctor but with Hans' brain replacing her own. As memories return to her - Hans' memories in fact - she sets out to pursue and kill those responsible for having sent him to his death. Written by garykmcd

A fantastic film from the fantastic Hammer studios
23 February 2005 | by The_VoidSee all my reviews

Hammer studios are probably best known for their 'Dracula' series, but if you ask me; the Frankenstein franchise beats it hands down every time. This instalment of the series features what is perhaps the most ridiculous plot line ever to be found in a Hammer film, but as usual with Hammer; the film ignores it's silly plot and carries on regardless, and the result is a camp kitsch masterpiece spectacular! The plot this time round sees Frankenstein playing with souls, and after creating a machine to make things impenetrable, he sets about capturing a fresh soul to implant into a dead body so he can finally complete his life ambition - to bring the dead back to life. However, all is not so rosy as he'd hoped, as through circumstance, Frankenstein ends up implanting the soul of a dead man into the body of a dead woman with disastrous results as the creature goes on a killing spree to end the lives of those that wronged him/her before the whole incident occurred.

Peter Cushing is a great actor. He's also a well-known actor and most people, horror fans especially, will know his face and demeanour. It is this that makes his performances in the Frankenstein films so amazingly brilliant. Despite the fact that we know him as Peter Cushing, he becomes the character of Frankenstein so well that we don't doubt that who we are watching is Baron Frankenstein, not Peter Cushing. Cushing obviously loves playing the character too, and this is more than evident throughout the film as we watch Cushing revel in his character's less than savoury personality quirks. Hammer's favourite director, Terence Fisher, competently directs the film. Although he never goes overboard with great direction, Fisher always gets the job done and his films justify him status among the top of horror's directors. The film is well plotted throughout, and although the title gives away what the film is about; we are still kept guessing as to how it will happen and why, and this makes it a lot of fun to watch. In fact, I would even go as far as to say that this is the most fun I've had watching a film in a while. So kudos to Hammer for that!
