Added DiffLines:

* BottleEpisode: famously made on a low budget, the film features a tiny cast and takes place almost entirely within the Baron's house, aside from the framing story in the prison and a few scenes in the woods. Paul keeps mentioning the town nearby but we never see it or any of the townspeople because Hammer literally couldn't afford to build another exterior set or hire that many extras at the time.

* CanonForeigner: Frankenstein, Elizabeth, Justine and the creature are all from Mary Shelley's novel, but Paul is an original character created just for the movie to give Frankenstein someone to play off of in his lab, just like [[TheIgor Fritz] in the first Universal film.

Added DiffLines:

* BlindAndTheBeast: The film subverts its source material by having the monster meeting a blind man and his grandson, and he immediately murders both.


Added DiffLines:

* GentlemanAndAScholar: Professor Bernstein is described as one of the most brilliant minds in Europe, but reminds Dr. Frankenstein that men of science are human, too, and must take time out of their work to enjoy life and the company of others. He appears to be an engaging conversationalist and a pleasant houseguest.


Added DiffLines:

* GratuitousLaboratoryFlasks: Baron Frankenstein's attic laboratory features a nice array of curvy Victorian retorts and such. Loads of bright, colorful liquids and heavy on the dry ice, it's definitely a feast for the eyes.


Added DiffLines:

* ShootingSuperman: Baron Frankenstein shoots the monster with pistol to no effect. He then throws the pistol at the monster. Again, no effect. Thankfully he throws a lantern next time and that seems to work.
