Hammer sidelined the core custodians of the Frankenstein series in favor of a racier and more playful youth-oriented reboot piloted by studio stalwart Sangster, who wore directing, writing, and producing hats here. Ralph Bates headlines as moody student Victor Frankenstein, who finds his calling in unorthodox medical experiments in raising the dead while betraying and/or murdering those who get close to him, including lovesick housemaid Kate O’Mara and school chum Veronica Carlson.

U.S. premiere of 2K restoration
