  • When their lab assistant, young Hans Werner (Robert Morris), is found guilty and beheaded for a murder he did not commit, Baron Victor Frankenstein (Peter Cushing) and his colleague Dr Hertz (Thorley Walters) claim the body so that they can separate from it Hans' soul and transfer his soul into the body of Hans' lover Christina Kleve (Susan Denberg), who committed suicide when she happened upon Hans being guillotined. Following the operation, however, as Christina's memories start to come back, so do Hans' memories, and Hans has revenge on his mind. Edit (Coming Soon)

  • Frankenstein Created Woman, like all Frankenstein movies, stems from the 1818 novel Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus, by 19-year-old British author Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin Shelley [1797-1851]. The screenplay for the movie was written by British screenwriter Anthony Hinds (writing under the name John Elder). It is the fourth film in a series of seven Frankenstein movies produced by UK's Hammer Studios, best known for its revival of the horror genre in the 1960s and 1970s. Preceded by The Curse of Frankenstein (1957) (1957), The Revenge of Frankenstein (1958) (1958), and The Evil of Frankenstein (1964) (1964), it was followed by Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed (1969) (1969), The Horror of Frankenstein (1970) (1970), and Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell (1974) (1973).

  • No. Although Peter Cushing stars as Baron Victor Frankenstein in all but one of the seven movies in Hammer's Frankenstein film series and there's often a character named Hans (usually his lab assistant/colleague), there is no attempt to tie the movies together in any logical sequence, like Hammer did with the movies in their Dracula series. Except for Cushing aging over the 16 years that the Frankenstein series spanned, the films are mostly meant to be viewable as stand alone stories not as ongoing sequelae. Edit (Coming Soon)

  • With Karl (Barry Warren) and Anton (Peter Blythe) dead, there's only one more to go: Johann (Derek Fowlds). Knowing that he's to be next, Anton hops on the coach to Innsbad but winds up sitting with Christina, who starts coming on to him amorously as she did with Karl and Anton. When one of the horses throws a shoe and the coach must stop, Christina suggests they walk the rest of the way and have a picnic together. Meanwhile, Victor is hurrying to catch up with the coach in order to stop Christina/Hans from murdering Johann. He finds out from the driver that they have taken a path through the trees, and he runs to catch up with them. Johann is resting his head on Christina's lap while she pours him wine and kisses him. She asks Johann if he would really like to know where he's met her before, and he lazily murmurs, "Yes." Christina takes out a knife, says, "I am Christina Kleve," and begins to repeatedly stab him. Victor hears the cries and realizes that he's too late. By the time he reaches her, he finds Christina holding up Hans' head and hears his voice saying: "You have done what you had to do, Christina. You may rest now...in peace." When she sees Victor watching her, she jumps up in shock and runs away but is stopped when she comes to a cliff. When Victor catches up, he tells her that she's not responsible for the killings, holds out his hand, and says, "Let me tell you who you really are." Christina replies, "I know who I really am...and what I have to do," and jumps into the raging water below, drowning herself, again. In the final scene, Victor slowly walks back through the trees.
