Product description

Product Description

A triple bill of early Hammer studios horror films starrring Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing, all from the director/writer team of Terence Fisher/Jimmy Sangster. 'The Curse of Frankenstein' (1957) was the first in Hammer studios' long line of horror films. Awaiting execution in his dingy cell, Baron Victor Frankenstein (Cushing) confides his story to a priest. Orphaned as a child, Frankenstein worked closely with his tutor, Paul Krempe (Robert Urquhart), experimenting on animals until they successfully revived a dead puppy. Much to Paul's unease, Frankenstein then worked obsessively to create a monster (Lee) out of assorted body parts, but once given life the creature attacked its maker and went on the rampage. In 'Horror of Dracula' (1958) Jonathan Harker (John Van Eyssen) journeys to Castle Dracula, where he is turned into one of the undead by the famous vampire (Lee). Professor Van Helsing (Cushing) arrives and drives a stake through Harker's heart, but must then pursue Dracula to London, where the Count intends to make Harker's fiancée Lucy Holmwood his bride. Whilst in 'The Mummy' (1959), when Stephen Banning (Felix Aylmer) and his son John (Cushing) disturb an Egyptian tomb, they invoke a terrible curse. Back in England they are tracked down by a mummy (Lee), who kills Stephen Banning. Realizing that he and his wife Isobel will be next, John attempts to escape from the rampaging mummy.
