4.0 out of 5 stars This Is Better Than Revenge, 26 April 2013
This review is from: The Evil Of Frankenstein [1964] [DVD] (DVD)
For me The Evil of Frankenstein is a superior film to the much overhyped Revenge of Frankenstein.

For one the settings are better and the gothic atmosphere reigns more supreme. There are more charcaters here.
The mute woman, The evil hypnotist and of course the monster represents a more true likeness to the Universal one.

Cushing as ever is present and good and he is aided by a helper Hans.

I like the fact that this is a continuation of the story. Some people claim it isn't. But watch the beginning, they are clearly on the run heading back to Kaarlstad from London perhaps? It would make sense.

There is a lot going on in the film and you will be rewarded with a second viewing. It fits quite a lot into it's 83mins. The escape at the beginning, Cushing's back story, being hunted down by the locals, finding the monster, the hypnotist, I could go on.

Though this isn't the masterpiece that the dvd box claims, it is an ennjoyable well thought out sequel.

As for the dvd release itself, the extras are a major disappointment. With just a trailer and a gallery of about five pictures which are small- with no zoom feature. Still great to have the film.
