The Revenge Of Frankenstein (1958)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
Having escaped death by the guillotine, Dr. Frankenstein relocates to Carlsbruck. There, as Dr. Victor Stein, he successfully establishes himself as a physician with a large practice and a hospital for the poor. After three years however he is recognized by Dr. Hans Kleve but rather than expose him, the young doctor wants to join him in his research. Frankenstein has resumed his experiments and is on the verge of re-animating a body he has constructed using the brain of Fritz, the deformed assistant who helped him escape from his death sentence. The operation goes quite well and Fritz is quite pleased with his new body. An encounter with a drunken hospital attendant however sends him on the run. As his mind and his body deteriorates, he publicly reveals the good Doctor's true identity.

- In correspondence from Hammer to the BBFC dated 30 July 1958, Hammer executives say that per the BBFC's request, the shot from "Reel 2" of Frankenstein dropping Karl's brain from a pan into a jar of fluid had been removed from the final print. This brief moment was a point of contention with the BBFC ever since the film had been submitted for certification during the script stage. However, the scene has existed in all known prints of the film ever since its distribution, even on Columbia's Super 8mm digest version.
In 1958, the Daily Telegraph was so horrified by what they saw onscreen that they suggested the BBFC create a special new category for the film - "For Sadists Only".
