The Horror of Frankenstein Review

This '70s inflected rendition of the Frankenstein story isn't terribly faithful to the original text, but it does feature a grandiose performance by Ralph Bates as the doctor obsessed with resurrecting the dead. His '70s hair and puffy shirt is reason enough to tune in, but duelling femmes fatale Kate O'Mara and Veronica Carlson remove any doubt about whether Horror has a legacy.
