Product Description

Product Description

The finale to Hammer's Frankenstein cycle features a young Doctor who is interned in the asylum where Baron Frankenstein supposedly perished after being found experimenting on stolen corpses. In the asylum he meets the mysterious Doctor Victor (Peter Cushing), and gradually comes to realise that Frankenstein is alive and well and continuing his work.

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.

Having read on the case that this dvd contains the uncut British theatrical print of the film, you know you're in trouble when the "Paramount" logo opens the film. In this country I believe it was distributed by Avco Embassy Pictures and in the US by Paramount. To cut a long story short it's a great shame that this is not the uncut British print because it is missing what is probably its most infamous scene; the one in which Peter Cushing's superb Baron Frankenstein clasps the monster's artery between his teeth whilst his assistant applies the stitches. Not only is the scene missing but it kinda rubs your face in it after the cut as Cushing wipes the blood from his lips just to remind you what you has passed. Why, oh why are these titles released by people who simply can't be bothered to check their facts. Lovely print of the movie though, crystal clear picture and sound. What's the betting that Paramount's upcoming region 1 disc contains the full "uncut" British print. Come to think of it, as with the Vampire Lovers, why is it that a UK company releases the censored US version, whilst the US company promises to release the uncensored UK version? Hammer keep promising to return. Maybe they, or he/she, should concentrate on working with the current copyright holders of their existing library to ensure its loyal fan base are no longer mis-represented with releases promising to be what they aint.

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.

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.
