The Revenge of Frankenstein (1958)

I watched this British 1958 Hammer horror film, Revenge of Frankenstein, on Svengoolie. The movie is directed by Terence Fisher (Horror of Dracula, The Curse of Frankenstein, The Hound of the Baskervilles, The Mummy, The Brides of Dracula, The Curse of the Werewolf, The Phantom of the Opera, Dracula: Prince of Darkness, Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed, Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell) and was the sequel to 1957 The Curse of Frankenstein.

In The Revenge of Frankenstein, Baron Victor Frankenstein is sentenced to die by guillotine but escapes and continues his quest to bring a body back to life but now with a better brain. Dr. Frankenstein is played by Peter Cushing

(Moulin Rogue, The Black Knight, The Abominable Snowman, Dracula, The Hound of the Baskervilles, The Mummy, The Brides of Dracula, Captain Clegg, The Evil of Frankenstein, Dr. Terror’s House of Horrors,

Oscar Quitak (Operation Amsterdam, The Prisoner). The movie was produced by Anthony Hinds (son of the founder of Hammer Films Productions) and written by Jimmy Sangster (mostly screenwriter for horror films). I enjoyed the movie and will give it 3.8 out of 5. For more information read Wikipedia, IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes.
