Frankenstein movies have been immensely popular since the mid 20th century with Britain’s Hammer Film Productions pioneering the Gothic horror with Terence Fisher’s ‘The Curse of Frankenstein’ in 1957. Prior to that there were many great Frankesntein movies made in the 30s and 40s, the most famous one being Mary Shelley’s adaption of the novel in 1931 but it was Fisher’s masterpiece that was game changing on every level.
Gothic horror remains quite an obscure zone and haven’t really been explored even by the most ardent horror fans which is what makes this article pretty exciting. So with all that said now, let’s take a look at the list top Frankenstein films ever made. On this list you won’t find the 2015 release Victor Frankenstein movie, but the fans of Young Frankenstein movie won’t be disappointed. By the way, if you wanted to know how many Frankenstein movies have been there.. the answer is more than 40.
12. The Evil of Frankenstein (1964)
Freddie Francis directed this Hammer Films Produced Frankenstein flick that’s cut straight out from the same cloth as the Universal Picture’s original Frankenstein series of the 1930s and 40s. This one is probably my favorite guilty pleasure Frankenstein movie. The funniest and most entertaining part of the film is Peter Cushing’s performance as Baron Victor Frankestein. While critics at the time were pretty harsh on this film, in retrospect, it certainly does come off as a more than enjoyable flick.
