Shout Factory is releasing Director Freddie Francis’ underrated Hammer horror, The Evil of Frankenstein (1964) on a collector’s edition Blu-ray. Stars Peter Cushing.
Frozen in ice, can the creature be brought back to live again?
Horror great Peter Cushing stars in this fantastic tale as the monster’s creator, Baron von Frankenstein, determined to bring the creature back to life. Long thought destroyed, Dr. Frankenstein’s creation is discovered frozen alive and resurrected back in his laboratory. Unfortunately, the creature’s mind is dormant and, much to the Baron’s horror, he finds that only a hypnotist can order the creature to do his unfathomable bidding now.
