Shout Factory’s blu-ray edition of Hammer Films’ Horror of Frankenstein (1970) arrives in August 2019.
What’s the story?
Young Victor Frankenstein returns from medical school with a depraved taste for beautiful women and fiendish experiments. When he runs out of fresh body parts for his research, he turns to murder to complete his gruesome creation. Now, his monster (David Prowse, the Star Wars films) has unleashed its own horrifying killing spree. The true horrors of Dr. Frankenstein have only just begun.
A bit of background
David Prowse has the distinction of being the only actor to have portrayed Frankenstein’s monster in more than one Hammer film – this production marked his first such appearance; the second occasion was Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell (1974), where his overall appearance was much more horrifically elaborate. He also appeared briefly in the traditional Frankenstein’s monster make-up and costume in a gag appearance in Casino Royale (1967).
