Product Description

Product Description

Classic horror starring Peter Cushing. Penniless, Baron Frankenstein (Cushing), accompanied by his eager assistant Hans (Sandor Eles), arrives at his family castle near the town of Karlstaad, vowing to continue his experiments in the creation of life. Fortuitously finding the creature he was previously working on, he brings it back to a semblance of life but requires the services of a mesmerist, Zoltan (Peter Woodthorpe), to successfully animate it. The greedy and vengeful Zoltan secretly sends the monster into town to steal gold and 'punish' the burgomaster and the chief of police, which acts lead to a violent confrontation between the baron and the townspeople.

Review

The third of Hammer's Frankenstein series starring Peter Cushing is generally considered to be the weakest. It has no link to any other film in the series and actually contradicts previous entries 'Curse of...' and 'Revenge of...' by inventing a new back story. Cushing is as good value as ever and it probably contains the best laboratory set of any Hammer Frankenstein. As usual with 60's Hammer, it looks georgous and is put together with the kind of skill other budget studios could only dream of. This film is proof that even a bad Hammer is still enjoyable 40 years on. --~Brett Campbell

Very nice Blu-ray, the picture quality is very nice, you could say near perfect. This is the third Frankenstein film from Hammer Horror Studios, and you could say not the best of the three, but still a very good film with a brilliant performance from the legend Peter Cushing, plus the Hammer Sets are once again brilliant, and for me this is what makes Hammer films so successful, and back in the day they had a atmosphere about them, which scared the audiences of its time, even now today. Hopefully one day there will be a ultimate HAMMER HORROR Box-Set, and just Horror films, now that would be nice.

I have been looking forward to this release for a long time. I have the Region 1 version, but I can only watch this on my computer, so to have a version I can play on my TV would be great. What a disappointment, it's FULL FRAME and not in the correct widescreen format it should be in. These DVDs are for a specialist market, who expects certain standards; and the correct format is one of them. I hope they put this right for future releases, otherwise it's back to watching my Region 1's on the computer.

Peter Cushing returns as the Baron in his third movie from hammer as Frankenstein. this time the baron thinks its safe for him to return to his home in Karlstaad. to continue his work of the creation of life.helped by his young assistant hans, played by Sandor Eles, they both stumble across the old monster that for years has been frozen in ice in the mountains. the baron revives the creature, but requires a hypnotist called Zoltan played by Peter Woodthorpe, to restore the creatures mind.and this is where every thing starts to go wrong for the baron.this is a stand alone story unlike the Curse of Frankenstein, and The Revenge of Frankenstein. as always Peter Cushing is very good, and so is the supporting cast pq .looks good in 1080p 16x9 on this blu ray, there is also a making of the film, a stills gallery,theatrical trailer, and a moment with Caron Gardner. all in all well done to Final Cut.

The picture quality of this BLURAY is generally very good indeed with excellent colours and in thankfully the correct film ratio ...however I suspect much of the grain has been removed in digital processing which gives a very smooth like appearance which distracts from a genuine film look....On the real downside is the fact that FINAL CUT have decided NOT to include SUB-TITLES of any language for the main feature....considering the high cost of the BLU RAY this is NOT acceptable and the people who are most likely to purchase are probably elderly who have developed Hard of Hearing problems with age.....

One of my all time favourite horror films. Appaently regarded by Hammer purists as out of step with the two previous Hammer Frankenstein films, 'Curse of ...' and ''Revenge of....'. But this is a great yarn.

*Warning - may contain slight spoilers if you've never seen the Frankenstein films before. You've been warned.

The Evil of Frankenstein has got a bad reputation in some quarters. I've been indifferent to it myself on previous viewings, but wanted to give it a fair reappraisal when my Blu-ray arrived. I prepared for it this time by watching Revenge of Frankenstein first and keeping an open mind. Revenge had scripted itself into a bit of a rut. It was a good ending, but once Frankenstein reaches success, there's no more room for a sequel. In that way, I can understand why it was felt a new direction was needed to continue the franchise.

This time I found it quite a fun film. It lies in the same gray area as Sam Raimi's Evil Dead 2 from more than two decades later in the way it's half reboot, half sequel. Francis's direction takes it away from the gothic comfort zone and more into horror thriller territory. Quite funny too in places, which was a surprise for earlier Hammer horror. Cushing's Frankenstein is played as a much more sympathetic character than the ruthless, single-minded scientist of the first two. Zoltan is the real villain here. I didn't really like this monster on previous viewings, but giving it a chance this time around it's actually a really nice design. Rather that it just looking like an inexpressive clay mask and Karloff wannabe, I got a Golem vibe coming from it. The creature created for revenge (Zoltan's in this case) that eventually turns on it's creator. I don't know whether this nod to Jewish mythology is by accident or design. Either way, I felt it rather effective.

I am pleased with the transfer.

This movie is not the best Hammer film out there but it does have its very good moments. It has had its knocks over the years but as an avid Hammer Horror fan I really had no problem with this film at all.
