Frankenstein And The Monster From Hell - Preview

Frankenstein and the Monster From Hell

Preview by Jack Foley

TO celebrate the release of the Hammer classic Frankenstein And The Monster From Hell – coming to 2-disc DVD & single-disc Blu-ray for the first ever time in the UK on April 28, 2014 – we have a copy to give away to one lucky horror fan!

The final feature film directed by the legendary Terence Fisher, Frankenstein And The Monster From Hell is a perfect, unusually gory and beautifully gothic swan song for Hammer’s incarnation of Mary Shelley’s two accursed creations.

Featuring yet another standout performance by the brilliant Peter Cushing as the mad baron, Frankenstein And The Monster From Hell is also notable for the pre-Star Wars pairing of the actors who would four years later reunite to play two of the most iconic villains in the cinematic galaxy – Darth Vader (David Prowse) and Grand Moff Tarkin (Cushing).

Synopsis

Convicted of bodysnatching and using the body parts of his ill-gotten cadavers for research, Dr. Simon Helder is sentenced to five years in an insane asylum. On arrival, he recognises the penitentiary’s resident surgeon as none other than the infamous Baron Victor Frankenstein, who has been hiding out there and continuing his research into the reanimation of corpses under the pseudonym of Dr. Carl Victor.

Recognising Helder’s surgical skills, Frankenstein enlists the young doctor as his assistant under the pretext of their tending to the medical needs of their fellow inmates.

But the reality of the situation is far more sinister. Frankenstein is already well on his way to creating a new living creature assembled from the vital organs of murdered criminals and madmen.
