The Curse of Frankenstein

release date: Jan 01, 2021
The Curse of Frankenstein
Critics abhorred it, audiences loved it, and Hammer executives were thrilled with the box office returns: ''The Curse of Frankenstein'' was big business. The 1957 film is the first to bring together in a horror movie the ''unholy two'', Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing, together with the Hammer company, and director Terence Fisher, combinations now legendary among horror fans. This book goes back to where the Hammer horror production started, looking at the film from a variety of perspectives: as a loose literary adaptation of Mary Shelley''s novel; as a film that had, for legal reasons, to avoid adapting from James Whale''s 1931 film for Universal Pictures; and as one which found immediate sources of inspiration in the Gainsborough bodice rippers of the 1940s and the poverty row horrors of the 1950s.
