Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell

A bodysnatcher is spotted exhuming a corpse for young surgeon Dr Simon Helder (Briant). Helders expe­riments are terminated when he is arrested for sorcery, and sentenced to five years imprisonment in an asylum for the criminally insane near Carlsbad. The asylum is ostensibly run by a corrupt director, but his strings are being pulled by the blackmailing Dr Carl Victor (Cushing). Victor is assisted in his duties as resident medical practitioner by the beautiful Sarah (Smith), a mute girl the inmates call Angel. Victor admits his true identity to Helder  he is Baron Victor Frankenstein, pursuing his depraved research safe in the knowledge that all bar a few of the asylum staff believe him to be dead. Helder becomes Frankensteins ap­prentice, and discovers that the Baron is using the body of hulking inmate Schneider as the basis for his latest experiment. The Monster is given new eyes, the hands of a craftsman and the brain of a brilliant suicide victim. The tormented Monster initially shows promise, but Schneiders violent personality soon begins to assert itself&
