Baron Victor Frankenstein was the archetypal aristocrat, well-read, cultured and arrogant. Beyond the sophisticated veneer existed a cruel, utterly unscrupulous man, obsessed with ambition. Determined to realise his greatest dream to create life, he had assembled a creature from organs gathered from various unwilling donors. The creature is successful brought to life but the instability of the brain, damaged during surgery, causes uncontrollable violent spasms that result in indiscriminate murder... and it is the Baron to whom the blame is laid with fatal consequences.
The Curse of Frankenstein is a classic 1957 British horror film by Hammer Film Productions, based on the novel Frankenstein (1816) by Mary Shelley. It was Hammer's first colour horror film, and the first of their Frankenstein series. Its worldwide success led to several sequels, and the studio's new versions of Dracula (1958) and The Mummy (1959) and established "Hammer Horror" as a distinctive brand of Gothic cinema. The film was directed by Terence Fisher and starred Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee in two of their most iconic roles.

The Curse of Frankenstein - Double Play (Blu-Ray and DVD), Hammer classic, is finally on Blu-ray. I bought this as I remember watching these with my Grandfather as a child, they are classic monster movies. The disc is well worth owning, contains a few different versions in different aspect ratios and some excellent extra features. Hope they release more of these Hammer films on Blu-ray soon.
Fantastic release of an all time classic. Packed with loads of extras. Cannot rate this high enough! Absolute bargain as well.
If you are a Hammer Horror fan then this is a good addition to your collection, even just for the extras. I purchased this recently, and the extras are good (Melvyn Hayes is great). The audio commentary with Marcus Hearn & Jonathan Rigby is good, as they both try to better each other with unknown info on the movie. As already stated by Tanith, the quality of the Blu-Ray disc is disappointing (certainly for the price). I expected much stronger vibrant colours. But this is just my personal view. Worth watching as a Halloween treat.
Massive hammer fan so when i heard this was being released on blu ray, i was very excited. already had the WB dvd version so when i put it in my blu ray player for the first time was amazed at the high quality, so when i finally got the liongate blu ray version, thought id be looking at a work of art, as meant to of been restored. utterly disappointing, it seemed to be washed out with a consistent flickering throughout! this is the worst copy i have ever seen, couldn't believe it after all the hype, especially when Dracula prince of darkness was such a great restoration!
