A different type of 'monster',
This review is from: Frankenstein Created Woman [DVD]  (DVD)
Baron Frankenstein (Peter Cushing) uses his surgical skills to transform a disfigured woman into a beautiful Playboy Playmate (Susan Denberg). The problem is that he has also transferred the soul of her dead lover, Hans (Robert Morris), into her body and Hans was framed for murder and then executed so revenge is on the cards.
This is an entertaining entry in Hammer's "Frankenstein" series of films and it saw Terence Fisher return to the series as director. The story may be a bit daft in places and lacking in logic (since when has that mattered anyway in 1960s' horror movies?) but it moves along quite well and contains some interesting and original ideas.
Peter Cushing is excellent, yet again, as The Baron and Thorley Walters (who kind of cornered the market in playing doddery old sods) is good as The Baron's dotty assistant, Doctor Hertz. Look out for Derek Fowlds (from "Yes, Minister" and "Heartbeat") as an upper-class twit who gets what's coming to him.
At the end of the day, the combination of Hammer/Fisher/Cushing makes this movie a must-see for anyone who loves classic British horror.
