The Curse of Frankenstein

Really disappointed by this. Despite a few joyfully gory moments earlier on, it’s largely flat and often pretty boring. The muddy colour cinematography didn’t do anything for me; I guess I like my monsters better in black and white. Christopher Lee’s Creature get-up looks awful. It all just felt like a pale imitation of the original.

The saving grace is Peter Cushing, who is unassailably brilliant as the dashing, cruel, psychotic Frankenstein. He alone makes it watchable.
