THE REVENGE OF FRANKENSTEIN
1958, Sony Repertory, 94 min, UK, Dir: Terence Fisher

Director Terence Fisher’s sequel to the first Frankenstein film, CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN, is the high point of the series, and one of Hammer Studio’s most satisfying gothics. Working incognito in a hospital for the poor, “Dr. Stein” (Peter Cushing) transfers the brain of his deformed assistant into the body of the “perfect man” (Michael Gwynne), but fails to account for the transplanted brain’s nasty image of itself. With Francis Matthews.
