The Curse of Frankenstein 1957
83 mins United Kingdom Director. Terence Fisher
In 1957 Hammer's Gothic cycle exploded onto the screen in full colour, and the genre was never the same again. The film brought two horror icons together on screen for the first time: Peter Cushing is mad scientist Baron von Frankenstein, who believes he can imitate God by bringing a dead body back to life; Christopher Lee, unmistakeable despite heavy make-up, is his tormented creation.
