Frankenstein Created Woman (1967)
That this is one of Martin Scorsese's favourite Hammer films gave me some hope that it was more interesting than the generally dismissive reviews suggested and indeed it was. This time Peter Cushing's Baron attempts to transfer the soul of his recently guillotined young lab assistant into the body of the poor boy's handicapped girlfriend (who has drowned herself)... and give her a makeover while he is at it! The Baron's zero-f**ks attitude towards the moral questions posed by such an experiment is a treat. A possessed transgender/split-personality killing spree from beyond the grave ensues against a trio of loathsome trust-fund bullies. This vendetta occupies most of the run-time in the second half, so I can understand if this Cushing-light section puts some viewers off. Also female lead Susan Denberg (Playboy's Miss August 1966) isn't the greatest actress. Those couple of flaws didn't dampen my enthusiasm and Director Terence Fisher's Pre-Raphaelite influenced visuals were very nice to look at.
