Movie SummaryA chilling and literal adaptation of Mary Shelley's classic novel. Victor Frankenstein, while in medical school, is obsessed with the idea of creating life. He attempts many bizarre experiments and his theories are laughed at. After graduation his private studies take an even more compulsive direction, which leads to experiments with human corpses. Using bodies stolen from the morgue, he creates a being in human form. This horrible and tormented creature rebels against the doctor and starts on a journey filled with murder and destruction. Dr. Frankenstein pursues him to the frozen Arctic for the final confrontation, from which only one will survive. "Originally titled Victor Frankenstein when released in 1976, this Irish-Swedish coproduction (which was filmed in English) remains the most faithful film adaptation of Mary Shelley's gothic tale. Avoiding the sensationalism of most Frankenstein films, producer-director Calvin Floyd opts instead for a more direct approach, resulting in an artfully somber rendition that benefits from budgetary limitations and a decidely European flavor. Leon Vitali stars as young medical-school graduate Victor Frankenstein, whose obsessive, clandestine experiments in the rejuvenation of dead tissue reach their tragic apex with the creation of a living man (Per Oscarsson) assembled from parts of corpses and revived by an electrical charge of lightning. As with Shelley's novel, the film holds sympathy for the melancholy monster, whose deathly appearance (blackened lips, sad, heavy-lidded eyes, complexion pale as bleached bone), aching loneliness, and murderous quest for revenge make him the bane of Frankenstein's existence. The film's subdued tone proves surprisingly apt (arguably more effective than Kenneth Branagh's frenetic 1994 production), and the lead performances are simultaneously understated and suitably intense. (It's worth noting that this was Leon Vitali's most prominent film role; after appearing as Lord Bullingdon in Barry Lyndon, he spent the bulk of his career as director's assistant and casting director for all of Stanley Kubrick's subsequent films.)" --Jeff Shannon. "Terror of Frankenstein, an Irish/Swedish coproduction, avoids the gimmickry and anachronisms which have distinguished previous versions of the Frankenstein story. This is done through the simple expedient of returning to the source, the original 19th century Mary Shelley novel. Terror is virtually a page-by-page retelling of the Shelley book, taking us from Dr. Frankenstein's earliest efforts to create synthetic life, progressing through the creation of his monster and the horrible consequences, and ending with the Doctor dead and his doleful monster exiled to an ice floe. This would remain the most faithful version of the classic horror novel until Kenneth Branagh's overproduced, underdeveloped version in 1994. Curiously, Terror of Frankenstein (also known as Victor Frankenstein) has been generally overlooked by film buffs, probably because it lacks star names or a "cult" director at the helm." ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide. VIEWER COMMENT : "I would rate this 4 1/2, leaning towards 5 stars. This is a really visually and stylistically beautiful film, not to meantion a haunting experience. There are images within this film that will stay with you for years. This is not a fast paced "mad-scientist" movie as most would expect. This film captures the morbid/melancholy/gothic atmosphere of the original book almost perfectly. In fact it is virtually taken directly from the book with only a few minor details altered. The performances are very natural and very European giving it a sense of believability that most Frankenstein films lack. The morbid, filthy, and atrocious nature of Frankenstein's experiments are expressed very well in a series of shocking and disturbing scenes. The creation scene is played out very much the same as it was written in the book. We're really not quite sure exactly how the monster is brought to life. If you're familiar with the original story, there really isn't much difference. A couple elements in the story are condensed, but that doesn't really take away from the film overall. The framing of Justine is left out and the death of Frankenstein's father is implied rather than shown. The cinematography is beautiful and the atmosphere is intense. Leon Vitali is excellent as the tormented, remorseful Victor Frankenstein, but Per Oscarsson steals the show as the monster. Oscarsson, a specialist in neurosis plays one of the most impressive monsters in a Frankenstein film. There is something very unnerving, unnatural and disturbing in the way he moves, looks and even talks. Just as it would be with an artificial man. He's less hideous than disturbingly unnatural. Oscarsson expresses the monster's alienation from the human race in a very subtle, yet heartbreaking way as we watch him go from innocent child, to bloodthirsty, vengeful monster. Overall if you enjoy Gothic melodrama this is your bag. Definitely worth seeing for it's faithfulness to the original text."
