Frankenstein Created Woman (1967)

**** out of 5

One of the more original and unique Frankenstein stories. No lumbering monsters in sight, but creepy and dramatic in wholly interesting and different ways than a typical tale of the mad doctor.
Plus, this one has all the makings of a good horror film:  guillotine beheadings, drowning, scarred and broken characters, angry and superstitious villagers, cool (literally, in this case) and scary science machinery, True Love, death, reanimation, soul transference, amnesia, revenge, a frighteningly seductive killer, split personalities, and a twist of Hitchcock's Psycho thrown in for good measure (this came 6 years after that game changer, so there's little reason to think it wasn't directly influential).
