The Revenge Of Frankenstein Blu-Ray

The Revenge Of Frankenstein Blu-Ray
One of Hammer’s most enduring and successful releases, 1958’s The Revenge of Frankenstein was a swift sequel to The Curse of Frankenstein, their box-office smash of the year before. It ushered in Hammer’s most commercially lucrative period, and secured their new-found reputation as purveyors of gruesome Gothic horror.

Expertly and ingeniously re-working the classic tale, Jimmy Sangster’s script sees the titular doctor continue his grisly experiments under a new guise in a pauper’s hospital. Peter Cushing, in sparkling form, clearly relishes the role of Dr Frankenstein – creating an enduring anti-hero that would come to define both Hammer’s, and his own, on-screen personas.
