Frankenstein Created Woman
Blu-ray (Hammer Collector’s Edition)
Director: Terence Fisher
Screenwriter: John Elder
Cast: Peter Cushing, Susan Denberg, Thorley Walters, Robert Morris
Millennium Entertainment
Not Rated | 92 Minutes
Release Date: January 28, 2013

Directed by Terence Fisher (The Curse of Frankenstein), Frankenstein Created Woman is the fourth film in Hammer’s Frankenstein series and stars Peter Cushing (Star Wars) as Baron Victor Frankenstein and Susan Denberg as his latest creation.

In the film, which was originally released in 1967, a tormented Christina (Denberg) drowns herself after her lover, Hans Werner (Robert Morris), is framed for murder and guillotined. Baron Frankenstein (Cushing), experimenting with the transfer of souls, places Han’s soul into the lifeless body of Christina, bringing her back to life. With no memories of her past life, a body occupied by two souls carries out a violent retribution on those responsible for both deaths.

Perhaps the most interesting element of Fisher’s film is that, where previous Hammer productions were concerned with the physical aspects of Frankenstein’s work, the focus here is in the metaphysical dimensions of life, such as the question of the soul and its relationship to the body.
