Frankenstein Created Woman always struck me odd. I appreciate seeing a movie where Frankenstein is the good guy. But, he goes about helping the poor local lovers in a sadistic way. After a case of misstaken identity and some light crime, a few people end up dead. Distraught over the recent deaths, a young woman drowns herself after finding out that her boyfriend was killed. Now, Baron Frankenstein gets access to all of the corpses and decided to have some fun.
Hammer was always best when trying to create their own path to horror icons. This Frankenstein entry was super obsessed with the power of souls and how one can move the components around. By utilizing the attractive Susan Denberg as this film’s monster, Frankenstein saved some cash on makeup FX and made a zombie possession love story. Unfortunately, Frankenstein Created Woman ends as tragically as the other outlets.
But, the main plot gets resolved and Baron Frankenstein can say he helped out some young lovers. That has to count for something. The Blu-ray is loaded with a new 2K scan transfer, new commentary and a ton of Hammer special features. The movie has never looked better in 1080p and I’m continuing to love Scream Factory’s handling of the Hammer movies.
