LOVE the score (and Stephanie Beacham of course).

The first Hammer film I ever saw (rightly so!). It's understandable how it shocked the world in 1957. The violence must have been pretty brutal for the time (the murder of the professor and shooting of Lee in particular) and the make up is grimly effective too. Cushing is excellent (as always) and Valerie Gaunt is superb as house maid Justine whose drawn out discovery of the monster remains my favourite sequence.

My favourite Hammer film of all time. A dark, brooding gothic fairy tale that never ceases to impress me. A storyline with subtext, characters with substance. A magnificent score. Dark. Sensual. Sublime.

My favourite of the Frankensteins and one of the very best Hammer films. The script is sharp and intellegent and the characters sympathetic. Veronica Carlson proves herself a brilliant actrress and Peter Cushing is superb and more cold and calculating than usual as the Baron....The set design, costumes and score are all top notch. What I would give to see this one and Taste The Blood Of Dracula as a double bill at the flicks!

Hi, I've been watching some of the filming and I think (I hope!) this film is going to be a classic. The village setting is very atmospheric and the weather has been miserable which adds to it. The village is set up in the early 1900's period (the Rolls Royce Silver Ghost is the one used in Dorian Gray and dates from 1913) The cast, not currently listed on the Hammer site includes Liz White (LIfe on Mars) and Ciaran Hinds (Rome) Tim McMullan and Daniel Cerquiera and Alfie Field. No sign of Michael Ripper - yet! :)

This movie represents the best telling of the story of "The Mummy." The usual pairing of Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing does not disappoint. The special effects are ahead of their time. Don't fall in for all ther new Mummy movies and all their CGI. Watch a true classis horoor movie...

Easily one of the best horror / sci-fi movies ever made. The amazing combination of incredible actors, phenomenal story, and an atmosphere that still gives me goosebumps. Being from the States, I knew this movie as Five Million Years to Earth, and first saw it when I was 7 years old. It launched my interest in this genre, and I have since collected a vast array of these movies, but I still consider this one to be the best. Take the time to watch it, you will not be disappointed.
