Peter Cushing Francis Matthews Eunice Gayson Michael Gwynn John Welsh Lionel Jeffries

Made by the same team as The Curse of Frankenstein, this is a high grade horror film.

Peter Cushing, as the famed medical experimenter, is still determined to make a monster, although that is not how he would put it. Despite official pressure, Frankenstein is again collecting bits of bone and tissue, muscle and blood, to put together a man of his creation. Again he succeeds, but again something goes wrong and his creature – through brain damage – becomes a cannibal, slavering blood and saliva.

The production is a rich one. The screenplay is well-plotted, peopled with interesting characters, aided by good performances from Francis Matthews as Cushing’s chief assistant and others.
