The Curse of Frankenstein is an often overlooked entry into the Frankenstein mythos and is one hell of an adaptation.
With a deeper focus on Victor than the monster such as in other films, this version of Mary Shelley's classic rings with not only a morbid curiosity of death but the sinister abandon of life.
With outstanding performances from Peter Cushing as Victor, Christopher Lee as the Creature, and Robert Urquhart as Paul, this film was full of excellent suspense and characters you cared about.
While this doesn't top Boris Karloff's Frankenstein with Universal, Hammer's attempt at the Frankenstein story is still one hell of a watch. I still feel goosebumps from when Victor begged for his life.
If you're a fan of old school monster films and even classical theatre, you'll love this.
