MV5BMTMyODAzMzYxOV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNTY1NjIyMQ@@__V1_UX182_CR0,0,182,268_AL_Review (Spoils): Baron Frankenstein (Peter Cushing) finds his old monster (Kiwi Kingston) in a glacier of ice and brings him yet back to life.  We have a small rehash of the Universal film storyline but with a touch of Hammer as we have the great scenery, prime acting, buxom ladies, some classic Frankenstein monster movements but some bad make-up ideas. The film plays like other Hammer films with some action scenes surrounding some sexual in the windows and of course the monster.

The film moves along well and there is really never a dull moment (after all it is a Hammer film) but the problem might be with the film is that it’s not their own. We all know the Frankenstein story from the classic Boris days of Universal so it is very hard to compete to that.  But the scenery does once again overtake and save the film.

Rating: This film is not one of the stronger Hammer films but at the same time is not the worst. We have a nice Frankenstein film with a descent storyline and the final battle scene is worth the watch alone. Grab some betters as it is Hammer time with Frankie!
