Fortuitously finding the creature he was previously working on, he brings it back to a semblance of life but requires the services of a mesmerist, Zoltan, to successfully animate it. The greedy and vengeful Zoltan secretly sends the monster into town to steal gold and ‘punish’ the burgomaster and the chief of police, which acts lead to a violent confrontation between the baron and the townspeople.
Plot: Once hounded from his castle by outraged villagers for creating a monstrous living being, Baron Frankenstein returns to Karlstaad. High in the mountains they stumble on the body of the creature, perfectly preserved in the ice. He is brought back to life with the help of the hypnotist Zoltan who now controls the creature. Can Frankenstein break Zoltan’s hypnotic spell that incites the monster to commit these horrific murders or will Zoltan induce the creature to destroy its creator?

The Evil of Zoltan!

The Evil of Frankenstein is directed by Freddie Francis and written by John Elder. It stars Peter Cushing, Sandor Eles, Peter Woodthorpe and Katy Wild. Music is by Don Banks and cinematography by John Wilcox.

Returning back to Karlstad after a ten year absence, Baron Frankenstein (Cushing) hopes that the town has forgotten his monstrous impact on the town previously. With assistant Hans (Eles) in tow, it’s not long before the Baron stumbles upon his monster creation frozen in a glacier of ice…

Anything they don’t understand, anything that doesn’t conform to their stupid little pattern…they destroy.

With Hammer Films finally getting friendly with Universal Pictures, The Evil of Frankenstein forgets the two previous Hammer Frankenstein movies and goes for what is in all essence a rehash of Karloff’s stomping days. That’s not necessarily a bad thing if one can judge the film as a standalone movie? But creativity is sparse and it’s left to the cast and technical department to create an above average Frankenstein movie.

Yep, it sure does look nice, with impressive costuming and well dressed sets, it’s a Hammer movie for sure. Bank’s score is also classic Hammer strains. Cushing gives his usual dose of quality, though he is a touch restrained here in terms of committed emotion, and you have to smile at his James Bond moment during one getaway scene while a buxom babe looks on with kinky lustation in her eyes. Elsewhere it’s a safe turn of cast performances, with future Dad of Delboy Trotter, Woodthorpe, camping it up as the scheming and revenge fuelled hypnotist Zoltan, Wild isn’t asked to do much, and neither is Eles, who seems to be in it for some continental flavour. Francis is no Terence Fisher, but he has a good visual flair and he can construct a very good action sequence, such as the excellent finale here.

There’s problems for sure; familiarity of Frankenstein movies in general hurts, the make up for the creature is very poor, one back screen projection sequence is very cheap even by low grade Hammer standards, while some of the Baron’s reactions to situations don’t bear up to logical scrutiny. It’s not hard to understand why it’s a very divisive movie amongst the Hammer Horror faithful. Yet its merits hold up well and it never once sags or becomes tiring. Cushing, Wilcox and that finale ensure it’s a decent night in by the fire. 6.5/10

_**Hammer borrows from Universal to reboot the series**_

Hammer did seven Frankenstein films from 1957-1973: “The Curse of Frankenstein” (1957), “The Revenge of Frankenstein” (1958), “The Evil of Frankenstein” (1964), “Frankenstein Created Woman” (1967), “Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed” (1969), “The Horror of Frankenstein” (1970) and “Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell” (1973). Peter Cushing plays Baron Frankenstein in every one of these except “The Horror of Frankenstein” because it was a remake of the original story and they needed a much younger actor for the role

With “The Evil of Frankenstein” it had been six years since the previous installment and it reboots the series after a distribution deal made with Universal. Before this, Hammer went out of its way to make their version different from Universal (for legal reasons); here, the monster has the iconic Universal look and Dr. Frankenstein’s lab is similar to the classic one, albeit everything’s in color.

While Terence Fisher directed five of the installments, Freddie Francis does the honors here (his only directing job for Frankenstein) and I found it superior to the previous “The Revenge of Frankenstein.” Yet it’s not great like the next two entries, “Frankenstein Created Woman” and, especially, “Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed.”

The basic Frankenstein story is intact: a mad scientist from Western Europe in the late 1700s/early 1800s is obsessed with creating life from an assortment of body parts and so sets up shop in a secret lair and is successful, but the confused, grotesque creature ends up going on a killing spree. Thankfully, this one adds the entertaining village carnival element as well as the interesting involvement of a selfish hypnotist from the fair (Peter Woodthorpe). Sandor Elès plays the Baron’s assistant while Katy Wild and Caron Gardner are on hand on the feminine front.

Although people gripe about the lack of continuity with the two previous installments from 6-7 years earlier, it can be resolved with a little imagination and filling in blanks: The Baron secretly built an alternative lab at his chateau outside Karlstaad which, if you think about it, he would’ve HAD to do during the events of “Curse.” He simply omitted these clandestine undertakings from his explanation to the cleric. The flashback in this movie, told by Frankenstein to new helper Hans (Sandor Elès), is the doctor’s fixed-up version of events in Karlstaad wherein he leaves out most of the details and lies about being exiled rather than condemned to execution. Since Hans isn’t Hans Kleve from “Revenge,” he knows only what Victor wants him to know about what went down.

The movie runs 1 hour, 24 minutes and was shot at Bray Studios, just west of London.

GRADE: B

Decent enough, if only for a few reasons
Trying to get his experiments started again, Baron Frankenstein and his assistant find his earlier creature frozen in ice and still alive, where a local magician uses it to exact revenge on the townspeople who race to stop it before the creature starts another rampage.

This here wasn’t that bad and actually had some good stuff going for it. The best parts to this one here was whenever it had the creature either as the main focus of the scene or featured it on-screen. The first scene with it, the flashback to the past where it shows the creature’s first rampage through the forest and its’ confrontations with the townsfolk results in some fun as the chases are nice, the stunts aren’t too bad and it has a fun atmosphere that makes it really enjoyable. The fact that there’s also some rather fun and enjoyable scenes later on inside the lab where the creature is being brought back to life through the hypnosis makes it quite fun, and when the creature goes out and gets his rampage going, the murder scenes are all nicely done. The final confrontation, where the monster gets out of control and starts a massive fire in the lab which soon turns into an inferno and takes out pretty much everything it can, manages to have much more fun from it when the hero gets stuck down there for the explosive final confrontation. The discovery of the creature takes place in a novel setting with the gloomy atmospherics of the cave-setting, the actual excavation is handled realistically and manages to feel completely plausible the whole way through, which is an unusual for these sorts of things. These here are enough to hold this off against its’ bad parts, though there isn’t a whole lot of flaws to this one. One of the main issues with the film is that there’s an incredibly lame monster design chosen that doesn’t do much of anything to instill fear in the viewer, as the expressionless green face looks like a block of flesh put atop the body, it’s general shape is baggy and inconsistent, and on the whole there’s hardly a whole lot of inference given it’s pedigree to the past. The other flaw to this one, and the one that does the most damage is the film’s utter dullness when it isn’t focused on the monster. The monster is brought out in full detail quite late in the film, making it a real stretch in the beginning to get some good parts out of it. It’s slow, dull and beyond the fun flashback has nothing all that exciting to make it interesting by focusing on such extreme lengths as it does on the carnival troupe and their reaction around town who in turn are yet again up-in-arms over the activities being conducted at Frankenstein manor which doesn’t really allow much action, and it takes a while before something fun happens. These are the film’s weak points.

THE EVIL OF FRANKENSTEIN N/A (Freddie Francis, 1964) **1/2
The third entry in Hammer Films’ 7-movie Frankenstein cycle was the first (of two) to be helmed by a director other than their resident go-to-guy Terenece Fisher; in fact, it was passed on to Oscar-winning cinematographer-turned-director Freddie Francis – himself a Hammer veteran in their psychological thrillers vein via PARANOIAC (1963) and NIGHTMARE (1964) – after Fisher bowed out due to an automobile accident. As it turned out, both non-Fisher entries – the other being prime Hammer scribe Jimmy Sangster’s offbeat directorial debut THE HORROR OF FRANKENSTEIN (1970) – did not go down well at all with fans of the celebrated British studio!

Although I recall a couple of matinée screenings on Italian TV in the past. I eventually caught up with THE EVIL OF FRANKENSTEIN in late 2005 while on a 3-month sojourn in Hollywood via Universal’s 4-Disc 8-movie DVD collection “The Hammer Horror Series”; incidentally, that set also included two movies which, like the one under review, was padded out with extra footage for TV syndication – namely Fisher’s THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (1962) and Don Sharp’s KISS OF THE VAMPIRE (1963; retitled KISS OF EVIL) – which I will be checking out later on during this month as part of my ongoing Halloween marathon.

Hammer stalwart Peter Cushing reprises his signature role of Baron Victor Frankenstein but, although there is a reference here to his past crimes, the flashback in question is not imported footage from the original entry THE CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN (1957) but one shot expressly for this film and featuring the actor playing The Creature here, namely professional wrestler Kiwi Kingston (at one point, shown munching ravenously on a flock of sheep and even suffering from debilitating migraine attacks)! Indeed, oddly enough, this entry discounts completely its predecessor – THE REVENGE OF FRANKENSTEIN (1958) – just as the above-mentioned Sangster film did the rest of the series!!

As the film begins, Cushing is fleeing the village he has relocated to after the events of CURSE because of further grave-robbing antics and, with his new assistant Sandor Eles, returns secretively to his family mansion in Karlstaad with the intention of selling off its precious possessions in order to fund his future experiments in electrical reanimation of dead tissue. As it happens, Frankenstein’s hometown is being visited by a circus troupe and, after falling foul of burgomaster David Hutcheson and Chief of Police Duncan Lamont, a masked Cushing and Eles find themselves “volunteering” for the act of hypnotist Peter Woodthorpe; taking refuge inside a cave along with deaf-mute Katy Wild (which was rendered thus by her meeting with The Creature during the aforementioned flashback), Cushing fortuitously stumbles on Kingston’s body perfectly preserved in a glacier. Needless to say, the irrepressible scientist contrives to transport the body to his now-dilapidated mansion and engages Woodthorpe’s services to reanimate it when the proverbial thunderstorm fails to do the trick. Unfortunately for him, the latter turns out to be the real villain of the piece – assaulting the deaf-mute girl and keeping her against her will in the dungeons, tormenting the chained monster and, worse still, ordering it to dispose of the local authority figures who had earlier humiliated him by stopping his public performance to apprehend Cushing and Eles!

The film was a potentially momentous co-production with Universal Studios which, 30 years previously, had made its own classic versions of the tale with Boris Karloff; this allowed Hammer to utilize for the first time a variation on the iconic Jack Pierce make-up design for the Frankenstein monster which, despite the ubiquitous Roy Ashton’s involvement, lends the resultant square-headed creature a decidedly ludicrous appearance. Similarly the screenplay penned by John Elder (a pseudonym for Hammer stalwart Anthony Hinds) is a subpar hodge-podge of old Universal themes: from drunken, embittered villagers bemoaning their kin’s unkind fate at the hands of The Creature to pompous figures of authority harassing the titular aristocrat to vengeful travelling charlatans taking advantage of the latter’s wandering creation.

Unfortunately, despite good intentions all round, the full-blooded Hammer magic fails to strike here; perhaps this was the main reason why the film was eventually trimmed in spots but also had an additional 13 minutes interpolated into the narrative for its U.S. TV screenings. Even so, these extra scenes – notably featuring Hollywood character actor Steven Geray as a sympathetic doctor – add very little of substance or entertainment value that make one wonder who was actually responsible for them! Indeed, this “Extended TV version” is apparently so rare that I could only come across a hazy and wobbly copy culled from Australian TV!!
