If you have seen, Curse of Frankenstein, then you must follow up with this excellent sequel. The magic which is in the Hammer Films allows that aura to continue in this follow-up story. In this second chapter of the infamous doctor who nearly wills his creature to live, we see that he has somehow escaped death by guillotine. Once again, we have the superb talents of Peter Cushing, who played Dr. Victor Frankenstein, in the original and successful 1957 version. In that prequel, the good doctor was sentenced to death and last seen approaching the guillotine. In this follow-up film, we see, he has somehow survived execution, and has chosen a new name; Dr. Victor Stein. Arriving in a new city, he sets up practice but is shunned by the city's medical authorities, who send a representative to demand he join their union. Francis Matthews plays the envoy, Dr. Hans Kleve, a fine doctor and a member in good standing with the union. In time however, he suspects the mysterious visitor is not only an superior doctor, but perhaps the greatest medical genius ever and wants to join him as his assistant. What follows is the the perhaps the best adaption of the Shelley story as we learn that Hans proves Dr. Stein correct. Dr. Kleve proves to be an excellent pupil and Dr. Stein proves equally prophetic. They will never be rid of Dr. Frankenstein! A great film and earns its place as a classic****

This is one of those horror films thats more thought provoking than scary and that was one of the best things about these films from Hammer studios. Story has Victor Frankenstein (Peter Cushing) being saved at the guillotine and popping up in Carlsbruch as Dr. Stein. The other doctors in the area are always talking about this mysterious doctor and one young doctor named Hans Kleve (Francis Matthews) discovers who he really is and wants to help him in his future experiments. They take the brain out of a deformed dwarf named Karl and put it into a body that was built by Dr. Stein and the operation seems to go well. Karl is healing well and responding to everything okay but he doesn't want to be a medical spectacle for everyone to gawk at so he convinces a woman named Margaret (Eunice Gayson) who works there to loosen his straps and he climbs out the window. One of the side effects of the transplant is cannibalism and he has a hunger for flesh. Also, Karls brain is telling him he is deformed so the rest of his body begins to change! This is one of the few films that Cushing made for Hammer studios that didn't have Christopher Lee in the cast as well. The sets look great as they always do and it really captures the look of what this part of Europe must have looked like back then. The best thing about this film is the story. After they transfer the brain from one body to another the brain tells the new body its deformed and it reminded me that this aspect of the Frankenstein story was dwelled on only rarely. There is some horrifying moments during this film but its really a science fiction story with the emphasis on science. Great atmosphere and solid performances add to this overlooked Frankenstein entry. Also, veteran character actor Lionel Jeffries plays a grave digger! Well worth a look.

Baron Victor Frankenstein (Peter Cushing) is sentenced to the guillotine but he succeeds to escape facilitated by the hunchback Karl Immelmann (Michael Gwynn) to Carlsbruck in Germany adopting the alias Doctor Victor Stein. Three years later, he is a successful physician in a poor hospital. Doctor Hans Kleve (Francis Matthews) recognizes Frankenstein and blackmails him to be his assistant. Dr. Stein shows a perfect body and tells to Dr. Kleve that Karl will donate his brain to a healthy body. They successfully transplant Karl&#39;s brain to the new body and Dr. Stein hides Karl in the attic. However a snoopy janitor (George Woodbridge) witnesses the transportation to the room and tells to the nurse Margaret Conrad (Eunice Gayson) that the doctors have hidden a patient in the attic. Meanwhile Dr. Kleve comments with Karl that he will become a medical sensation and Karl is afraid of the situation. When Margaret finds Karl in the attic, he convinces her to release the straps that hold him to the bed. Karl runs to Dr. Steins&#39;s laboratory but he is attacked by a man that believes that he is a burglar. When Dr. Stein and Dr. Kleve arrive in the laboratory, Karl has already gone leaving two deaths on his path. What will happen to Karl and to Dr. Frankenstein?<br/><br/>&quot;The Revenge of Frankenstein&quot; is a good sequel of &quot;Frankenstein&quot; despite the title since there is no revenge. This is a good movie from Hammer and that is not a surprise having director Terence Fisher and Peter Cushing in the cast. Dr. Frankenstein giving explanations to Dr. Kleve about his transplantation procedure is very funny. My vote is seven.<br/><br/>Title (Brazil): Not Available
