A much underrated Hammer effort, that was nicely done with budget rationing. But there was plenty of talent there, including dear PETER.

British distributors Icon Home Entertainment have sent us a new clip from their Blu-ray release of director Terence Fisher's Frankenstein and the Monster From Hell (1973), starring Peter Cushing, Shane Briant, Madeline Smith, David Prowse, Patrick Troughton, and Bernard Lee. The release is available for purchase now.

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 recognizes 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. Recognizing 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.

Ha, that's great! I agree with Hitler (maybe I should whisper that). I've posted this before, but I'm still waiting for a great looking Blu-ray from Hammer's golden age. The German Curse Of The Werewolf might be the one, but it's a wee bit expensive (as are some of the UK releases). Rumour is that Warner might be releasing some of their Hammer titles next year, so high hopes for a Dracula that's not a symphony in blue, & a Curse Of Frankenstein that I can bare to look at.

Just as well I'm a big fan of those great Roger Corman horrors, they look great.

British distributors Network have officially announced and detailed their upcoming Blu-ray releases of John Hough's Twins of Evil (1971) and Peter Sasdy's Countess Dracula (1971). The two releases will be available for purchase on September 8th.

Twins of Evil

Drected with characteristic style and energy by cult filmmaker John Hough (The Legend Of Hell House, The Watcher In The Woods) and starring horror legend Peter Cushing (Horror Of Dracula, The Curse Of Frankenstein), Twins of Evil (15) combines the signature Hammer elements of supernatural horror, black humour and fabulously lurid sensuality.

Featuring an all-time classic score by Harry Robinson, Twins Of Evil also stars Kathleen Byron (Black Narcissus), Isobel Black (The Kiss of the Vampire) and Dennis Price (Kind Hearts and Coronets), with Playboy Playmates Mary and Madeleine Collinson as the twins.

Glamorous identical orphaned twins Maria and Frieda move from Vienna to the village of Karnstein to take up a new life with their submissive aunt and grim uncle - a fanatical Puritan and leader of a witch-hunting religious sect who is determined to kill his nemesis, Count Karnstein: a devil-worshipping libertine who has been turned into a vampire.

Special Features:
Original theatrical trailers and TV spots

Countess Dracula

One of Hammer's most enduringly popular films and a benchmark for 1970s horror, Countess Dracula stars Ingrid Pitt (The Wicker Man) in an iconic, career-defining role as the aged countess who must regularly bathe in virgins' blood to regain her fading youth.

Genre stalwart Peter Sasdy (Hands of the Ripper) directs arguably his best Hammer film, from a script by award-winning writer Jeremy Paul and showcasing a rousing score from composer Harry Robinson.

In medieval Hungary, Countess Elisabeth Nádasdy, an embittered, ageing widow, discovers by accident that virgin's blood causes her skin become youthful and smooth. Determined to retain her new youth at all costs, the Countess coerces her lover to abduct a string of young virgins to keep her supplied with the blood she now craves to stay beautiful...

Special Features:
Audio commentary with Ingrid Pitt and horror experts Kim Newman and Stephen Jones
Original theatrical trailer
