FRANKENSTEIN MUST BE DESTROYED (1969 U.K.) D: TERENCE FISHER W: BERT BATT W/P: ANTHONY NELSON KEYS
Fifth Hammer horror with Peter Cushing as Dr. Frankenstein. A younger doctor is blackmailed into helping the increasingly cold and callous Frankenstein (who even rapes a woman this time). Another creature is created of course, but it's not very interesting (the make-up consists of a few stitches). Cushing's portrayal of a well-scripted, evolving character is excellent, but this entry is the worst in the series i think. With Fredie Jones, Thorley Walters and Geoffrey Bayldon. Camp crept in for FRANKENSTEIN AND THE MONSTER FROM HELL, but first Hammer made the non-Cushing THE HORROR OF FRANKENSTEIN.
