Hammer Horror: Frankenstein
Shout Factory continues to roll out classic Hammer Horror films on Collector’s Edition Blu-Ray discs with the release of Frankenstein Created Woman.
Released in 1967, the film marks Peter Cushing’s fourth appearance as Baron Frankenstein. This time out the Baron tries out his ghastly experiments by trying to resurrect the body of a friend’s dead girlfriend. Quite a friend.
The film boasts another top notch cast that includes Thorley Walters, British legend Robert Morris and as the woman Frankenstein shall create… Susan Denberg.
The film was directed by the master himself, Terence Fisher (The Curse of the Wrewolf, Islands of Terror) stepping in to direct his third Frankenstein tale for Hammer Pictures. The script was penned by John Elder and has all of the gore and suspense that horror fans love in these classic films.
As always Shout Factory has pulled out all the stops to make this Blu-Ray edition a completist’s dream. Everything about this release is top notch! From the 2K scan of the original film elements to the new audio commentary by film historians Steve Haberman and Constantine Nasr.
Other Frankenstein special features include:

– Hammer Glamour Documentary
– Theatrical Trailers
– TV Spots
– Stills Gallery
If you are a fan of the classic Hammer Horror films or just a horror fan in general you owe it to yourself to pick up a copy of Frankenstein Created Woman as the film has never looked and sounded better than on this Scream Factory release.
