The Curse of Frankenstein Film Poster


The first in Hammer studios' long line of horror films. Awaiting execution in his dingy cell, Baron Victor Frankenstein (Peter Cushing) confides his story to a priest. Orphaned as a child, Frankenstein worked closely with his tutor, Paul Krempe (Robert Urquhart), experimenting on animals until they successfully revived a dead puppy. Much to Paul's unease, Frankenstein then worked obsessively to create a monster (Christopher Lee) out of assorted body parts, but once given life the creature attacked its maker and went on the rampage.
