5.0 out of 5 stars Will the real Soul please stand up Dec 13 2002
By Ned
At the beginning of the movie a murderer is guillotine and witnessed by his young son Hans. Years later Hans is working with Dr. Hertz and Dr. Bon Frankenstein (played by Peter Cushing). Frankenstein has himself frozen for exactly one hour, down to the second, where he is trying to prove that the soul does not leave the body. He is revived and to celebrate his success sends Hans out to get some champagne at one of the local pubs. Hans is in love with the owner's daughter (Christina played by Susan Denberg) and spends the night with her but when the owner is killed Hans is accused and refuses to tell where he was when the murder took place. Hans is found guilty and himself guillotined like his father. Christina sees this and jumps off a bridge and drowns.
Dr. Frankenstein retrieves Hans's body, captures his soul, and places it in Christina body. Among Frankenstein accomplishments he is a brilliant cosmetic surgeon and turns Christina into a beautiful blond with the aid of Dr. Hertz. Now with a new body and Hans's soul revenge is sought for Hans and Christina's father's deaths.
This is another excellent Hammer film and with Peter Cushing heading the cast. The quality of the DVD is excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars stylish, erotic, smart- all my favorites!!! May 17 2002

Format:VHS Tape
I saw this many, many years ago in the theatre... still a great movie, but the tape didn't exactly capture the lush backgrounds, the erotism of the first time. Well, I'm also not 6 (or whatever) years old.
Still, I experienced again: a delirious crush on Hans, the romantic, too-good-to-be-true, hero- who was able to love AND LUST after Christine, the flawed and mistreated servant girl (haven't we all been her at one time?)His ability to see past the scars she felt such shame from made him a big numero uno for me even way back then.
Second: yowza! I prayed that my pre-adolescent self would develop into ANY SEMBLANCE WHAT-SO-EVER of the oozing sexuality of the transformed/re-created (isn't that another wish of ours, ladies?) Christina (Susan Denberg)...
And, oh yeah... Peter Cushing is in it, too.
HA! Just kidding...the blend of old school, classic horror and repressed sexuality made for a memorable movie that I had to buy and watch again and again.
If you dig the mix... and you know who you are out there... get this movie

Hammer's Victor Frankenstein owes little to the Universal series (where the character was named Henry and in fact the sequels featured the monster and not the Doctor) or even the original novel (whose Victor was a young college student and not a Baron).
When one follows the Baron in the Hammer series, one finds a lot of inconsistency. The insensitive, murderous Baron of CURSE is toned down a bit in REVENGE, misunderstood in EVIL, is the "hero" of CREATED WOMAN, is a killer and more evil than ever (and just transplants a brain) in MUST BE DESTROYED, and is back more or less like the Baron in REVENGE in AND THE MONSTER FROM HELL. Cushing is a wonderful actor and makes the character interesting, in spite of the scripting.
One wonders how the Baron came upon the idea to transplant souls since he seems to be an atheist or how he is able to acquire the machinery to be able to accomplish it without arousing suspicion. FRANKENSTEIN CREATED WOMAN is a pretty good film overall, but the ending does seem weak. One gets the feeling they couldn't think up a more satisfying ending and just had her drown herself again. Hammer fans will probably enjoy it anyway. Others should look for a more traditional Frankenstein movie.

Frankenstein Created Woman(1967)- A film alot of people dislike mainly becasue it's perhaps the only Fisher/Cushing/Frankenstein film to sideline the character of the Baron. I on the other hand find the premise very intresting, and a very innovative and inteligent approach. The film is less of a horror film and more of a poetic gothic mood piece, if anything else. The movie is structured as a pattern of symmetrical inversions and echoes. The first half starts with the double ritual of horror as a father is guillotined before the eyes of his son and then the son's decapitation is witnessedby his lover, while the second half, contained between Christina's two suicideds by drowning, is punctuated by two rituals of pleasure as she seduces and gruesomly kills Han's tormentors. These flamboyant explosions of violence are mingled with pleasure and death are bound together by the Baron's calm but relentless experimantation, filmed in tenderly muted technicolor, whi ch culminates in the ironic poetry of the ending as Cushing watches Denberg's body being carried away along the moutian river and, with a shrug of his shoulders, turns away, providing what must be the most understated ending ever for a horror movie. The film is filled with felictious directorial touches, the movie contains a spendidly characteristic scene which summarizes Fisher's coception of the Baron's character. Apearing as a witness in court, Cushing casually and with an air of amused condesension fingers a few pages of the bible. Enhanced by wondefully controled acting, especially by Cushing and Walters, who both give superb perfomances, this is the most touching/moving, emontional, and most oneiric of Fisher's wonderful Frankenstein series. If there is one complaint from me of this film, it would be, and only be the "tacky looking sets". Read more ›
