Get Hammered! week continues at Trailers from Hell with director Brian Trenchard-Smith introducing the Brit horror studio’s “The Horror of Frankenstein,” which Trenchard-Smith says is “generally considered the nadir of the Hammer Frankenstein series.”
This campy replay of The Curse of Frankenstein misfires in a variety of directions. As fate would have it, it went out on a US double bill with The Scars of Dracula, itself the low point of Hammer’s Dracula series. Brian Trenchard-Smith created this trailer and is considerably more forgiving of the movie’s low rent aspects. But magic-marker scars do not a monster make.
