While it's certainly not the most beloved film in Hammer's illustrious catalogue, Scream Factory will be continuing their love for the iconic British production company with 1964’s The Evil of Frankenstein on Blu-ray.
Surprisingly enough, the Peter Cushing-starring film is being presented as a Collector’s Edition Blu-ray on May 19th, 2020.
The newly commissioned artwork you see pictured comes to us from artist Mark Maddox (Dracula: Prince of Darkness, Frankenstein Created Woman). This art will be front-facing and the reverse side of the wrap will feature the original theatrical artwork. A slipcover is guaranteed if purchased within its first three months of release.
New extras are in progress and will be announced on a later date (March timing). Scream Factory, however, has confirmed today that they are proceeding with a new transfer of the film!
You can pre-order now from ShoutFactory.com. The first 500 orders from the site will receive an exclusive limited edition 18” x 24” rolled poster of the exclusive new illustration.
In the Freddie Francis-directed film, "Horror great Peter Cushing stars as the monster's creator, Baron von Frankenstein, determined to bring the creature back to life. Long thought destroyed, Dr. Frankenstein's creation is discovered frozen alive and resurrected back in his laboratory. Unfortunately, the creature's mind is dormant and, much to the Baron's horror, he finds that only a hypnotist can order the creature to do his unfathomable bidding now."
