Christina (Susan Denberg) is anything but a beauty, her face is horribly disfigured and she's got a club foot. Still, Hans (Robert Morris) is in love with her. Then though Christina's father (Alan MacNaughton), the local innkeeper, is murdered by three rich ruffians (Peter Blythe, Barry Warren, Derek Fowlds), who put the blame on Hans. Unfortunately, Christina, who spent the night in question with Hans, is out of town and thus can't be of any help, and since Hans' father was a murderer, who ended his life on the guillotine, there is little question for judge and jury about Hans' guilt - and thus he is beheaded. Christina returns back to town just in time to see her lover lose his head, and she immediately drowns herself ...

End of story ?

Not by a long shot: Fortunately, Hans was the assistant of Doctor Frankenstein (Peter Cushing), who is presently experimenting with soul transplantation (!) to create artificial life, and he somehow manages to get his hands on Hans' body long enough to capture his soul. Then he is delivered (?) Christina's body, and decides to transplant Hans' soul into her body - and while he's at it also give her some plastic surgery ...

Christina returns to life a beautiful woman with blond hair (she was formerly a redhead), and especially Frankenstein's assistant Doctor Hertz (Thorley Walters) loses his heart to her.

Still though, Christina has now the soul of Hans, which makes her seduce the three murderers of her father and then decapitate each one of them. Too late Frankenstein has realized what kind of a vengeful creature he has created, and only after the third murder, he manages to catch up with her ... only to witness her drowning herself again, now that the purpose of her life has been fulfilled.

 


As you can see from my synopsis, the plot of this film is rather silly, even for a Frankenstein film, but having said that, Frankenstein Created Woman is at the same time beautifully directed, with director Terence Fisher once again perfectly capturing the period feel of the story (helped no doubt by wonderful costumes, props and sets), it's full of macabre details (like Christina keeping the head of Hans with her and talking to it), and of course the film is wonderfully acted, with Peter Cushing naturally dominating every scene he's in, and Thorley Walters playing a Doctor Watson-type character (a role he had previously played in Sherlock Holmes and the Deadly Necklace, while Cushing previously played Sherlock Holmes in Hound of the Baskervilles and would later on TV) to his Baron Frankenstein.

Granted, not the best of Hammer's Frankensteins, but still totally watchable and not the worst by a long shot either.
