British distributors Icon Home Entertainment have sent us a new clip from their Blu-ray release of director Terence Fisher's Frankenstein and the Monster From Hell (1973), starring Peter Cushing, Shane Briant, Madeline Smith, David Prowse, Patrick Troughton, and Bernard Lee. The release is available for purchase now.
Synopsis: Convicted of bodysnatching and using the body parts of his ill-gotten cadavers for research, Dr. Simon Helder is sentenced to five years in an insane asylum. On arrival, he recognizes the penitentiary's resident surgeon as none other than the infamous Baron Victor Frankenstein, who has been hiding out there and continuing his research into the reanimation of corpses under the pseudonym of Dr. Carl Victor. Recognizing Helder's surgical skills, Frankenstein enlists the young doctor as his assistant under the pretext of their tending to the medical needs of their fellow inmates. But the reality of the situation is far more sinister. Frankenstein is already well on his way to creating a new living creature assembled from the vital organs of murdered criminals and madmen.

I got this today and I'm happy to say, on first skip-through, that this is one of the "good" Hammer releases, as far as I can tell. Really nice, film-like PQ and strong, clear audio as well as a nice selection of extras. It's uncut too. Recommended.
Mine is on the way from the UK ! can't wait to see it ! PQ looks way better than my old Paramount DVD. They never include a trailer !?? Icon, Lionsgate Why not ?? Region B ! ol Dut Where are all the Hammer Film Fans !!!!
