Film: The Curse of Frankenstein (1957)
Location: Haunted Home/Forest
Height/Weight: That of an average human.
Summary: Hammer Productions will always be remembered for taking most of the classical monsters of Universal and taking them to their logical gothic extremes. For now, such a fate would befall the tragic story of Dr. Frankenstein and his desire to play God.
History: In all honesty, Baron Victor Frankenstein (this version, at least) was always a bit of an ass. After his mother's death, he seemed only to care about the massive fortune she left behind, and how it would contribute to his desire to break the barriers of science. Eventually, years passed, and after resurrecting a puppy, the baron realized that he could defy death itself, and by extent, creation. He soon set out to create a functional human being out of multiple parts. Unfortunately, his reluctant mentor and assistant damaged the brain in the process. So now we have this perpetually stunted thug of a monster that lashes out at just about anything.
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: After confronting his creator, the monster is set on fire by the mad doctor. Burning in pain, the beast falls through a window and lands straight into a tub of acid, destroying any evidence of its existence.
Powers/Abilities: Immensely strong.
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 3.5-Unlike the more misunderstood incarnations of old, this Frankenstein's monster is a full-blown force of nature, trying to destroy anything that even provokes it the slightest.
Trivia: -The monster was played by Hammer Productions regular, Christopher Lee.
-This was Hammer Production's first color film.
