THE CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN — Re-engineered!!!

The world premiere of our restored THE CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN will take place at the CATH/DMU Hammer event in Leicester on Saturday 14th July, preceded by Mark Gatiss in conversation with Jonathan Rigby. Click here to book tickets. For the first time in many years, the film will be screened in its original aspect ratio of 1.37:1 aka “Academy”. The film will also include the “eyeball” scene — restored from a reel of a print housed at the BFI then integrated into the main restoration, which was scanned from a Warner Bros. I/P — though not the “head in acid bath” scene, which despite our best efforts appears no longer to exist. Our warmest thanks to Deluxe 142, Soho for their superb work on restoring and grading this film — we hope you’ll all be as pleased with it as we are! For those of you who can’t make it, we hope to announce the UK Blu-ray release date at the event (we’ll tweet it immediately after announcing).
