The HAMMER Frankenstein Collection

Universal Studios denying Hammer the use of their trademarked monster make-up actually worked in the British company’s favour. It forced them to shift the focus from the monster to the creator—the man for whom the entire franchise was named—and in so doing enabled them to better explore the nuances of character that defined the Baron. That they managed to have Peter Cushing star in all but one of the films was the icing on a fortuitous cake.

Films on In a Nutshell:
01. The Curse of Frankenstein (1957)
02. The Revenge of Frankenstein (1958)
03. The Evil of Frankenstein (1964)
04. Frankenstein Created Woman (1967)
05. Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed (1969)
06. The Horror of Frankenstein (1970)
07. Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell (1974)
