HORROR OF DRACULA (IB TECH PRINT!)(1958)
The chill of the tomb will never leave your blood after you come face-to-face with the Horror of Dracula! In Terence Fisher’s sumptuous, haunting & beautifully-filmed vampire tale for the legendary Hammer Films, Christopher Lee plays the bloodthirsty Count for the first time, rising from the crypt hungry for a new bride. Outside the ominous castle, Doctor Van Helsing (Peter Cushing) must unravel the mystery of the undead to put a stake in the heart of evil once and for all.
THE CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN (1957)
Peter Cushing stars as Victor Frankenstein and Christopher Lee is his monster in Hammer Films’ production of The Curse of Frankenstein. This version, told in flashback by an imprisoned Frankenstein, shows how he came to undertake his ghastly experiments with the dead, in hopes of creating new life like some sort of self styled God. As in Mary Shelley’s original novel, things don’t go as planned, and it’s not long before Frankenstein’s monster is killing people, be it on his own or at his master’s urging. Cushing and Lee give their usual skillful performances, and Terence Fisher expertly helms what would be a big hit for Hammer, leading to a long run of monster movies by the studio.
