Review: ‘Frankenstein Created Woman’

In Frankenstein Created Woman the good doctor, as usual, played by Peter Cushing, doesn't really create woman, he just makes a few important changes in the design. Considering the result is beautiful blonde Susan Denberg, most film fans would like to see the doctor get a grant from the Ford Foundation, or even the CIA.

In this version, Frankenstein dabbles as much in transmigration of souls as actual patchwork surgery, capturing the psyche of an executed young man and instilling it in the body of a drowned young woman (Denberg). The girl, originally a disfigured, shy maiden, is rejuvenated as a beautiful femme whose touch proves tres fatale when the male soul uses the female body to wreak vengeance on the trio of young wastrels responsible for his execution (Peter Blythe, Barry Warren, Derek Fowlds).
