Format: Blu-ray
Locked up for dabbling with 'sorcery', a young doctor finds that he shares the asylum with his hero in science, Victor Frankenstein, who has faked his own death in order to continue with experiments and effectively control the weak-willed corrupt manager of the place. Together the two scientists use various pieces of dead prisoners to construct a monstrosity that eventually awakens to produce dire consequences. Taking FATMFH out of its difficult context in the history of horror it's not a bad film at all, with a beautifully grim setting (almost entirely in the asylum), an ugly, tragic creature at the heart of the tale, and some unprecedented brutality.

Released on Blu-ray in the UK as a dual edition pack, the three disc set contains two DVDs alongside the Blu. On the Blu (and spread across the other two discs due to the substantially lower storage capacity of DVD) the film is presented as you would have seen it theatrically (my favourite ratio, 1.66:1) and, as an optional extra, in its un-matted 35mm form at 1.37:1 (i.e. more information seen at the top and bottom of the screen), accurately moving at 24 frames per second in either case (sped up to 25 fps on the DVDs, naturally). Obviously if you're viewing on a 16x9 widescreen display then the 1.37:1 version will have thick black bars at the sides, whilst the 1.66:1 version will have very thin black bars at each side. Preference will depend on the viewer ultimately, and one can argue the virtues of each until the full moon sets, but it's fantastic that we're actually given the choice and the viewer can sample each before settling down to the enjoy the film. Detail on the 1080p Blu-ray transfers is set at an excellent standard, whilst the DVDs can't compete but still look reasonably good considering they're Standard Definition.

Format: VHS Tape
The Hammer series of Frankenstein films always took the subject far more seriously than those that emanated from the USA.
The English films were never intentionally camp and while the Universal series quickly degenerated to the likes of "Abbott and Costello meet Frankenstein" by episode five the Hammer series were just finding their mettle.
"Frankenstein and the Monster From Hell" is late in the Hammer series and could easily be called the most intelligent and thought provoking of them all.
A plot that has Baron Frankenstein (played by the magnificent, inimitable Peter Cushing) *still* hard at his experimenting with bringing dead people to life while hiding out in a mental institution probably presupposes anything but a good film. Thankfully, the precise opposite is true.
This film examines the ideas behind the reanimation of dead bodies intelligently, and what's more it does it with heart and and great deal of kindness. Without spoiling the plot the "monster" does not want to be reborn, the humans surrounding him are unpleasant bigots and Frankenstein finally faces the fact that his experimenting causes human/emotional pain.
Simply put, this is Frankenstein with both a heart AND a brain, things which the vast majority of the films based on Mary Shelley's book sadly lack as they shamble towards their end credits.
Hopefully one day Peter Cushing will be recognise as one of the finest technical actors ever to grace a movie screen, and this is one of his finest, and most understated performances.
If you like Hammer horror, this one is seriously underrated and well worth watching.

Yes, the film is a cult classic, and the Bluray transfer is excellent. We finally get to see this film in its uncut glory, with all the excised scenes restored. Great. However, as has been noted elsewhere at forums on the Internet, the first batch of this release has an error on the Bluray disc, where the image breaks up and moves in slow motion for a few seconds. Other posters here have the exact timing information. I use an OPPO with the latest firmware and have usually never any problems with playback, but these issues are evident at first glance.

So please, Icon, you need to issue a replacement Bluray disc. These glitches truly upset the film experience.

Format: DVD
Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell is directed by Terence Fisher and written by John Elder (AKA: Anthony Hinds). It stars Peter Cushing, David Prowse, Shane Briant, Madeline Smith and John Stratton. Music is by James Bernard and cinematography by Brian Probyn.

Working under the name of Doctor Victor, Baron Victor Frankenstein (Cushing) is head physician at an asylum for the criminally insane. When Simon Helder (Briant), a gifted doctor himself and a follower of Frankenstein's work, is committed to the asylum on sentence of sorcery, the pair quickly form a partnership that will unleash Frankenstein's latest project...

Actually made in 1972 but released two years later, Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell came out as Hammer Horror was limping along on its last legs. It was to be the last in the Frankenstein series and the last film directed by the brilliant Fisher. The reputation of the film is a very mixed one, certainly the box office returns and critical notices at the time point it out as a misfire. But what I have come to find is that staunch Hammer Horror fans have a kind regard towards the film, and I think that is fair given that it pretty much goes back to past glories, if not in scope, but in narrative and atmospheric toning.

Yes it is viable to say that it's pretty much a rejig of the earlier Revenge of Frankenstein, so in that it's a bit lazy, but I like to think that the return of Cushing, Fisher and Hinds suggests they were making one for the fans here, and it's not without merits in spite of familiarity and budgetary restrictions.
