Frankenstein Created Woman ★★★ Frankenstein Made Woman 1966

In Hammer's fourth take on the Frankenstein story, traditional lab scenes are replaced with less expensive “soul” translocations, though the filmmakers retain an ongoing fascination with decapitations. Oddly, the story has a warmth that's often lacking in the genre, and it's aimed at a younger audience, reflecting the changes that were going on when it was made. 86m/C DVD .
