Baron Frankenstein is continuing his unorthodox experiments and is now trying to isolate the soul, an entity which he is convinced lives on after death. He is soon able to test his theories when his assistant, Hans, is wrongly guillotined for the murder of his crippled and deformed lover’s father and the girl, having witnessed the execution, commits suicide. Frankenstein operates on her, reviving her, mending her body and transforming her into a beautiful young woman, while at the same time transferring Hans’ soul into her body. But now the spirit of Hans forces her to seek vengeance on the three ruffians responsible for the murder for which he died…..

Austrian beauty Susan Denberg longed for the glamour of the movie industry, but, when stardom came, she was unable to cope. She had appeared as a centrefold in Playboy magazine and landed a part in “An American Dream” (aka. “See You in Hell, Darling”) (1966), but after “Frankenstein Created Woman” she suffered severe mental problems which forced an early end to her acting career.
At about this time, Terence Fisher took time off from Hammer to make two films for Tom Blakeley’s Planet Films – “Island of Terror” (1966, with Peter Cushing) and “Night of the Big Heat” (1967, with Cushing again and with Christopher Lee).
