Another Hammer Horror Classic,
This review is from: The Revenge of Frankenstein [DVD]  (DVD)
This great Hammer horror is possibly the best Frankenstein movie ever made.
The film takes up from where the previous Hammer Frankenstein movie, "The Curse Of Frankenstein" left off.
Having escaped the gallows, Baron Frankenstein (Peter Cushing) is now working under the new name of "Dr Stein" and is blackmailed into accepting the assistance of Dr Hans Kleve (Francis Matthews) who knows the Baron's true identity, and joins the Baron in his charity work at a clinic, helping down and outs.
Trouble is, the Baron helps himself to their limbs for his latest creation, with various amputees left filling the ward.
The normal appearing "Monster" (played by Michael Gwynn) is eventually unstrapped from his bed in an isolated room whilst recuperating by a woman volunteer at the clinic (Eunice Gayson) and then he escapes, eventually to murder twice after being attacked himself.
Eventually, when the authorities and patients get wind of who "Dr Stein" really is, the patients turn on him, and the badly wounded Baron leaves his salvation in the hands of Hans, with a nice twist at the end.
This excellent movie holds your attention throughout, because its nicely paced and never sags, so put your feet up, have some assorted snacks ready, and enjoy.
Both the colour widescreen picture and sound quality are excellent, with various subtitle languages, including English.
The extras include film trailers and a photo gallery.
