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!
