Another Great Horror Film From Director Terence Fisher
Frankenstein Created Woman(1967) is the most complex and tragic of all the Hammer Frankenstein films. DR. Frankenstein in the film tries to figure out a way to beat death by the transference of the soul. Susan Denberg is excellent as the deformed turned avenging beauty named Christana. Terence Fisher's brilliant direction in this movie is enough to show that along with Mario Bava was one of the best Horror directors of the 1960's. The movie is about how ignorance can have an effect on an entire community. Frankenstein Created Woman(1967) is a thought provoking horror flick that ends on a depressing note.
