By Wayne Klein HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 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.

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".

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.

This is the sequel to Hammer Films' first "Frankenstein" film, centering on the adventures of the creator rather than the created.

Escaping execution, the Baron turns up three years later under an assumed name, practicing medicine but running afoul of the local doctors' council because he snubs them. He is still experimenting, planning to help his semi-paralyzed assistant into a normal life by transferring his brain into an able body. Things go awry, of course...

This is a fast-moving film making it seem much shorter than it actually is. Sometimes things happen a bit too fast, such as when the Baron is confronted by a doctor guessing his secret and he immediately decides to make him a colleague in his experiments. No test questions, no, "Why should I trust you?" Just stick out a hand and shake on it and the deal's done. Mutual trust all around. There's no love interest in this story and the insertion of the minister's daughter as some kind of vague "Helper" seems merely a plot ploy to set the monster free. After all, someone has to do it.

The color is lavish and the costumes authentic. I found myself fascinated by the men's ties or cravats or ascots or whatever their neckpieces were called.

Peter Cushing is good as usual and there's a talented supporting cast, most of them from the Hammer "repertory company"... Richard Wordsworth, Lionel Jeffries, Michael Ripper...faces seen again and again in these films.

It's interesting to see the direction these movies took in contrast to the Universal versions which were the reigning "Frankenstein" movies for so long.
