British distributors Final Cut Entertainment will release two classic Hammer films in June and July: Terence Fisher's The Brides of Dracula (1960), starring Peter Cushing, Martita Hunt, and Yvonne Monlaur, and Freddie Francis' The Evil of Frankenstein (1964), starring Peter Cushing, Peter Woodthorpe, and Duncan Lamont.
Exact technical specs and supplemental features to be included with these upcoming releases are yet to be revealed.
A young teacher on her way to a position in Transylvania helps a young man escape the shackles his mother has put on him. In doing so she innocently unleashes the horrors of the undead once again on the populace, including those at her school for ladies. Luckily for some, Dr Van Helsing (Cushing) is already on his way. Street date: June 24.
Penniless, Baron Frankenstein (Cushing), accompanied by his eager assistant Hans (Sandor Eles), arrives at his family castle near the town of Karlstaad, vowing to continue his experiments in the creation of life. Fortuitously finding the creature he was previously working on, he brings it back to a semblance of life but requires the services of a mesmerist, Zoltan (Peter Woodthorpe), to successfully animate it. The greedy and vengeful Zoltan secretly sends the monster into town to steal gold and 'punish' the burgomaster and the chief of police, which acts lead to a violent confrontation between the baron and the townspeople. Street date: July 22.
