TALES OF FRANKENSTEIN

Lurching, growling and crashing through more than two dozen original theatrical trailers and TV appearances, the Monster and his maker are featured in the original Universal films, the Technicolor terrors of Hammer, and a selection of the most off-beat Frankie flicks ever seen: there’s a 50-foot tall Japanese monster, a space robot, a Teenage Monster, and more Brides, Sons, Daughters and Ghosts of Frankenstein than you could shake a scalpel at.

For the first time on DVD, you'll see the half-hour pilot for a TV series, Tales of Frankenstein, produced by Hammer films in 1959, directed by Curt (Donovan's Brain) Siodmak, plus hysterical appearances by Lon Chaney and Glenn Strange with Abbott and Costello, and excerpts from Chaney's ill-fated broadcast of Frankenstein on the early live TV anthology Tales of Tomorrow. As extra added-value attractions, this DVD also includes an audio interview with Boris Karloff, a filmed interview with Karloff, and interviews with Hammer producer Michael Carreras and "an audio interview with Glenn Strange. A DVD-ROM supplement reproduces the complete text to Mary Shelley's novel.
