5.0 out of 5 stars Classic sequel looks great on DVD September 22, 2002
Format:DVD
Few sequels live up to the expectations of the original. By taking a completely different approach (dropping the monster in favor of following the much more interesting Dr)than the Universal series of films, Hammer actually kept the series from becoming routine... What matters most, though, is the sharp writing, performances and intelligent direction.
Jimmy Sangster's script abandons all the history attached to the previous films and focuses on many of the issues that drove Mary Shelly's classic novel. He also focuses on the driven, obsessed Baron Frankenstein. Clearly this script (or film) had an impact on Christopher Isherwood's Frankenstein: The True Story filmed two decades later. Peter Cushing gives a skilled, sharp performance and, as usual, he is the film's secret weapon. He could play the phone book and make it interesting. This is one of his best performances in a genre film. Francis Mathews also gives a sharp performance as a doctor that becomes Dr. Stein's pupil.
The DVD looks stunning given the age of the negative. The colors are rich and the wide screen image has been preserved. The extras include the original trailer and production stills from the film. A running commentary from a Hammer film historian or someone involved in the production of the film would have been interesting. Perhaps that will happen when the next generation of high definition DVDs are available. Regardless, this is a fine film that has finally become available again for the first time in years. Snap it up while you can before this disappears as so often happens to Hammer films on video.

4.0 out of 5 stars More Good Stuff From Hammer October 17, 2003
Format:DVD
Halloween is a good time to dip into the classic horror library, and there are few classics better than the Hammer horror films. Revenge of Frankenstein is the sequel to Hammer's successful Curse of Frankenstein. Peter Cushing returns as the good doctor. Having escaped the gallows 3 years prior, Dr. Frankenstein is living and practicing medicine in Germany under the name Dr. Stein. He splits his time between a successful practice and treating the poor. Of course he has not abandoned his research in creating life. His work with the poor serves as a good source of "materials". In this film he transports the brain of a disfigured assistant into a new body. Unfortunately, all does not go smoothly and Dr. Frankenstein once again becomes a wanted man.
I like the course Hammer took with the Frankenstein films. They focused on the "real monster" instead of resurrecting the same creature over and over. Cushing is always a pleasure to watch and he plays the role perfectly. The picture quality on the DVD is very good and is presented in widescreen format. There are some very minor scratches, etc. visible here and there, but they are minor and I doubt the film has ever looked this good. Colors are fairly sharp and clear, though not quite as good as the Warner release of "Curse". The sound is crisp and audible with virtually no hissing. There are virtually no extras on the disc save for a couple of stills and a trailer.
If you are looking to start a Hammer library, this disc should be high on your list just behind the aforementioned "Curse of Frankenstein" and "Horror of Dracula".

Format:DVD
1958's "The Revenge of Frankenstein", really achieves that rare feat of being a movie sequel every bit as good, if not better than the original movie which in this case was Hammer's groundbreaking "The Curse of Frankenstein", from 1957. That film not only changed forever the fortunes of Britian's small Hammer Studios but also made full fledged stars of both Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee. Obviously produced to build on the huge success of the first film "The Revenge of frankenstein", is a stylish, thoughtful and well conceived horror story in it's own right with Peter Cushing really making the character of Baron Frankenstein, which he was destined to play six times, his own. With an obviously bigger budget than the first film this effort has the trademark Hammer look, (with some of the sets admittedly recycled from "Horror of Dracula"), and atmosphere including rich technicolour, great period flavour and a sympathetic "creature", in actor Michael Gwynne who fulfills much the same role here as Christopher Lee did so wonderfully in the original film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent sequel to The Curse of Frankenstein November 8, 2009
Format:DVD
I'm reworking my way through the Frankenstein movies,beginning with 1957's "The Curse of Frankenstein". This 1958 sequel (running time approx 89 minutes) takes off directly from its predecessor, where Frankenstein (the great Peter Cushing) has been sentenced to death by guillotine, but manages to escape with the help of the crippled Karl (Oscar Quitak). Three years later, Frankenstein has assumed a new identity, that of Dr. Stein, a benign and philanthropic doctor who tends to the needs of the wealthy by day and ministers to the poor by night. But of course, our dear baron has not forgotten his old experiments or desire to play God, taking the various amputated body parts for his own infernal experiments. This time, he has an able and willing helper/conspirator, Dr. Hans Kleve (Francis Matthews, from Dracula: Prince of Darkness) whom Stein grooms and takes under his wing. Before long, the crippled Karl finds a new 'lease of life' in a nicer looking body, but his mind unfortunately is not all that wholesome, and the cycle of violence continues. Karl finds a benefactress in an attractive and wealthy young lady (Eunice Gayson) who actually shines in her small role. With violence unleashed in the town, the medical council whose members are already jealous of Stein's success start digging into Stein's past and make a startling discovery which may cause our 'good' doctor to be on the run again.

Peter Cushing is simply amazing as Baron Frankenstein aka Dr. Stein. He portrays a 'softer' side to Stein in this movie compared to Curse as in Curse he was all evil, there really was no redemptive feature to him in his pursuit of 'manufacturing' life and playing God.
