Help me identify horror movie that scared me as a child

When I was about eight years old, I saw a horror movie that scared the hell out of me. I'd like to identify it. I ran a bunch of Google searches, but I didn't come up with anything that matches my memory of the movie.

This is how I remember it (but keep in mind that I saw it about 40 years ago). The movie is similar to the Frankenstein story, in that a scientist builds a monster out of various body parts. Things don't go as planned, though, and the scientist has to lock-up the monster in some kind of cell, or storage room, or something like that. At the end of the movie, the monster breaks out. He's still wrapped in bandages, which almost makes him look like a mummy. The monster is angry, and he chases the scientist around the lab. The lab catches on fire, and everything burns down.
The scientist talks with a bit of a British accent, and the monster's name is something like "Shooter". The film is black-and-white, and it's probably from the 1930s or 1940s.
OK, that's all I can remember. I wouldn't be surprised, though, if I have some of the details wrong (or, possibly, I'm conflating two or more movies).
