The Curse of Frankenstein – Marcus K. Harmes

£9.99

In his Devil’s Advocate, Marcus Harmes goes back to where the Hammer horror production started, looking at the film from a variety of perspectives.

Product Description

Critics abhorred it, audiences loved it, and Hammer executives where thrilled with the box office returns: 1957’s The Curse of Frankenstein was a big success and sent Hammer Films down a new and lucrative path. In his Devil’s Advocate, Marcus Harmes 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.
