A TRIPLE SHOT Of HORROR: PETER CUSHING As BARON FRANKENSTEIN!

Since Y’all Already Know I’m A Horror AND Sci-Fi Geek…

…I Figured I’d Make Mention Of A Classic Horror Actor…

…And His Three Best Turns Within The Horror Genera…

…Or At Least…

…His His Three Best Turns As His Most Famous/Infamous Character.

Today, We’re Discussing…

PETER CUSHING

…As…

BARON VICTOR FRANKENSTEIN

!!! !!! !!!

*** *** *** *** *** *** ***

*** *** ***

We Begin With HIS Beginning In The Series…

THE CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN

(1957)

In The First Flick…

…They Set The Stage For Us.

We See A Very Young “Victor Frankenstein” As He Learns The Ropes Of SCIENCE…

…And Around His Personal Laboratory.

With The Assistance Of His Tutor AND Friend “Paul Krempe”…

…Played Here By Actor…

ROBERT URQUHART

…They Discover The Secret To The Re-Animation Of Life.

The Monster That Results From Their Experiments…

…Played Wonderfully By…

CHRISTOPHER LEE

…Is A Hideous…

…Evil Creature…

…That Has Already Shown Its Willingness To KILL.

CAN THEY STOP THE CREATURE BEFORE IT KILLS AGAIN?!?!?

AND SO BEGINS THE SAGA…

…Of…

PETER CUSHING

…As…

BARON VICTOR FRANKENSTEIN

!!! !!!

Our Second Flick Is…

My FAVE-FAVE-FRANKENSTEIN-FLICK Of ALL-TIME

FRANKENSTEIN MUST BE DESTROYED

(1969)

BY FAR FAR FAR…

FRANKENSTEIN MUST BE DESTROYED

…Is…

…MY FAVORITE.

PETER CUSHING‘s

BARON VICTOR FRANKENSTEIN

…Is Not Only A Mad-Scientist…

…But He’s Also HARSH, CRUEL, EVIL, And TOTALLY INDIFFERENT To The Suffering Of Those Around Him.

.PERIOD.

I Like The Term “RUTHLESS” In This Case…

…And…

PETER CUSHING

…Plays The Part TO PERFECTION.

This Flick Is Mainly Centered Around The Baron’s Groundbreaking Work In The Field Of…

…BRAIN TRANSPLANTS!!!

I Shit You Not, My Peeps…

…It’s True.

Take The Brain Out Of A Living Body…

…And Then Re-Attach The Brain Within A DIFFERENT Living Body!

It’s A Pretty Wild Concept, Yes…

…And It Makes For Some SUPER QUALITY HORROR!!!

If You Only EVER Get The Chance To Watch ONE Film In This Series…

FRANKENSTEIN MUST BE DESTROYED

…SHOULD BE THE ONE, Fo SHO Fo SHO!!!

*** *** *** *** *** *** ***

As For My Third And Final Selection…

…It’s Another Classic Favorite…

…And (Possibly) The Most FUN Entry In The Series…

FRANKENSTEIN AND THE MONSTER FROM HELL

(1974)

In This Flick…

PETER CUSHING‘s

…Final Turn As…

BARON VICTOR FRANKENSTEIN

…You Can Very Much Tell It Was Done SPECIFICALLY For The FANS.

.Period.

It All Takes Place In A Mental-Institution…

…Where He Literally Has The Run Of The Place…

…And Can Snatch-Up People…

…Or Just Their Parts…

…As He Fancies.

His Latest Creation Is A Large, Hideous, Hairy, Psychotic Creature…

…Played By…

DAVID PROWSE

(aka The Man Behind DARTH VADER's Mask In The "Star Wars" Films)

…Who Has Been Given The Gift Of Life Again…

…Thanks To The Transplant Of Its Old, Useless Brain…

…With The Brain Of A Musical Genius.

HOWEVER…

…When Something Goes Wrong…

…And The Body, The Psychotic Begins To TAKE-OVER The Genius’ Brain It Now Carries…

…You Just KNOW W’re In For A WILD-GOOD-TIME!!!

*** *** *** *** *** *** ***

It Is Often Said, My Peeps…

…That They Just Don’t Make HORROR FLICKS Like They Used To.

And THAT Is Very VERY TRUE.

The Three I’ve Mentioned Here…

THE CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN

(1957)

&

FRANKENSTEIN MUST BE DESTROYED

(1969)

&

FRANKENSTEIN AND THE MONSTER FROM HELL

(1974)

…Are PRIME-EXAMPLES Of That Statement.

They Really DON’T Make’em Like These Anymore.

But These DO Continue To Live On…

…And They’re Just As Much Fun To Watch Now…

…As They Were Back In The Day…

…And Maybe Even MORE-SO!!!

Hope Y’all Have A Great Day, My Peeps!!!

I Smell A “FRANKENSTEIN MOVIE MARATHON” In The Air!!!

Don’t YOU?!?!
