Film and studio history in the making: with Hammer’s deepest dive yet into the horror genre, the template for a house style was forged by artisans whose craft would forever be identified with Hammer. Fisher directs Jimmy Sangster’s adaptation of the Mary Shelley tale, and cinematographer Jack Asher arranges the color palette. Sharing the screen for the first time, Peter Cushing is obsessed scientist Victor Frankenstein and Christopher Lee is The Creature.
