The Curse of Frankenstein, starring Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee, is a classic 1957 horror film by Hammer Film Productions, based on Mary Shelley’s 1816 novel Frankenstein. It was Hammer’s first colour horror film, and the first of their Frankenstein series. Its worldwide success led to several sequels as well as the studio’s versions of Dracula (1958) and The Mummy (1959) and established Hammer Horror as a distinctive and uniquely British brand of Gothic cinema.
This special release includes the infamous ‘eyeball’ scene, which was originally censored but has now been fully restored. As well as an alternate version of the feature at the widescreen ratio of 1.66:1, plus brand new documentaries and commentary track, multiple bonus extras and a stills show.
