4.0 out of 5 stars He burned his own body!, 14 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Revenge of Frankenstein [DVD] [1958] (DVD)
This is another fine example of Hammer Horror in their prime.
Revenge continues where Curse finished- and although the beginning of the film is slightly confusing, all is revealed later on.

The great Peter Cushing once again plays the Baron to perfection, and he is blackmailed and helped on by a fellow doctor which always became the norm in these films.

The colours are rich, and though there isn't any gore or frights the acting and dialogue is enough to draw one into this film.

There's a nice twist at the end- and although this probably wasn't as good as Curse or Destroyed, Revenge is a worthy additon to your collection.

Hi Colonel Decker,
Yes that beginning is a bit confusing as I believe there wasn't an intention of making a sequel when "Curse" was originally filmed so after its big success Hammer had to twist the story around a bit to resurrect Peter Cushing's Frankenstein at the start of "Revenge". I really enjoy "Revenge", and think Peter Cushing and Francis Mathews make a great team in it. I love picking out all the old "Horror of Dracula" sets reused for Frankenstein's lair, that's what makes Hammer production so much fun to watch (among countless other reasons as well of course!) The actor who is the "creature" in this installment is heart breakingly tragic in my belief although of course Christopher Lee as "Monster No. 1 " is indeed a hard act to follow.
Cheers

Simon
