Before entering the horror film fray, Hammer Films had been known for their work in the film noir genre as well as what was referred to as “quota quickies” in the UK. However, the success of The Quatermass Xperiment (1955) started to change the fortunes of the studio, which had been reeling under financial strain; after a couple of excursions into sci-fi, the studio made its presence in the horror genre known with The Curse of Frankenstein.
