The Frankensteins of Hammer

A little bit of eye candy for today's 31 Days of Horror. All in, Hammer Studios produced seven movies featuring Frankenstein's creation, from The Curse of Frankenstein (1957) to Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell (1974). Hammer stalwart Peter Cushing, as Baron Frankenstein, starred in almost all of them. Collected below is the series, in order, featuring the quad poster from each. Enjoy!

The Curse of Frankenstein (1957)

The Revenge of Frankenstein (1958)

The Evil of Frankenstein (1964)

Frankenstein Created Woman (1967)

Frankenstein Must be Destroyed (1969)

Horror of Frankenstein (1970)

Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell (1974)

Tales of Frankenstein (TV, 1958)

In 1958, they also produced a pilot called Tales of Frankenstein, for a proposed series that began with "The Face in the Tombstone Mirror," a story about Doctor Frankenstein bringing a young woman's husband back to life. The proposed 13-episode series was to be co-produced by Hammer and Columbia Pictures; however, it never went past the pilot stage. It's available for viewing on YouTube:
