The Horror of Frankenstein (1970)


The Horror of Frankenstein

We are now into the 6th instalment of the Frankenstein Franchise as visioned by Hammer Productions. It’s first in the 70s and it definitely feels it. Out with the old and in with the new as they say, as Hammer tries to sex up the image of Frankenstein. Cushing is cast aside and in comes Ralph Bates to take on the titular character. At the time, Hammer were trying to mould Ralph Bates as the new face of Hammer Horror.

But will this new approach take effect? And will the fact that Jimmy Sangster’s triple role of writer, producer and director limit the scope of Hammer’s new vision?
Check out the thoughts and views of HHP in the audio file below:
