The last of the Hammer Frankenstein films, this one deals with Baron Frankenstein (Peter Cushing) hiding out in an insane asylum, so that he may continue his experiments with reanimating the dead, along with inmate Dr. Helder (Shane Briant), who has been institutionalized for conducting such experiments.

With an excellent cast consisting of the cream of British character actors from stage, large and small screen, headed up by Bernard Lee, Charles Lloyd Pack and a young Madeline Smith, this final instalment brings the series of six films to a satisfying but sad end.
