Frankenstein Created Woman CoverFrankenstein Created Woman
Blu-ray (Hammer Collector’s Edition)
Director: Terence Fisher
Screenwriter: John Elder
Cast: Peter Cushing, Susan Denberg, Thorley Walters, Robert Morris
Millennium Entertainment
Not Rated | 92 Minutes
Release Date: January 28, 2013

Directed by Terence Fisher (The Curse of Frankenstein), Frankenstein Created Woman is the fourth film in Hammer’s Frankenstein series and stars Peter Cushing (Star Wars) as Baron Victor Frankenstein and Susan Denberg as his latest creation.

In the film, which was originally released in 1967, a tormented Christina (Denberg) drowns herself after her lover, Hans Werner (Robert Morris), is framed for murder and guillotined. Baron Frankenstein (Cushing), experimenting with the transfer of souls, places Han’s soul into the lifeless body of Christina, bringing her back to life. With no memories of her past life, a body occupied by two souls carries out a violent retribution on those responsible for both deaths.

Perhaps the most interesting element of Fisher’s film is that, where previous Hammer productions were concerned with the physical aspects of Frankenstein’s work, the focus here is in the metaphysical dimensions of life, such as the question of the soul and its relationship to the body.

Director: Terence Fisher
Screenwriter: Jimmy Sangster
Cast: Christopher Lee, Barbara Shelley, Andrew Keir, Francis Matthews
Millennium Entertainment
Not Rated | 90 Minutes
Release Date: September 17, 2013

Directed by Terence Fisher, Dracula: Prince of Darkness takes place in 1895, a decade after the events of Horror of Dracula, Hammer Film Productions’ 1958 film starring Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing.

The film begins with the final scenes from Horror of Dracula, showing Dracula’s death at the hands of Dr. Van Helsing (Peter Cushing). Using a makeshift crucifix, Van Helsing forces Count Dracula into the destructive rays of the sun. Dracula (Christopher Lee) is destroyed and crumbles to dust in the sunlight.

10 years later, Father Sandor (Andrew Keir) is traveling the English countryside. He happens across a mob of villagers who are going to stake a woman through the heart – for fear that she is a vampire. Sander prevents the staking and chastises the presiding priest for perpetuating the fear of vampirism.
