The Evil of Frankenstein

"Weak"

The Evil of Frankenstein Review


Hammer Films' third Frankenstein movie is really just more of the same: The broke baron is back to digging up bodies and attempting to animate them (this time with the help of a hypnotist called, ahem, Professor Zoltan). Disastrous results ensue. Won't this mad scientist ever wisen up? Unfortunately, the monster makeup is a little south of corny, which doesn't do much to elevate this film beyond a pedestrian monster flick.

The film appears on DVD as part of the mammoth two-disc, eight-movie Hammer Horror Series, which includes The Brides of Dracula, The Curse of the Werewolf, The Phantom of the Opera (1962), Paranoiac, The Kiss of the Vampire, Nightmare, Night Creatures, and The Evil of Frankenstein.
