BLU-RAY: Jess Franco’s The Erotic Rites of Frankenstein
The Redemption label and Kino Lorber have detailed the upcoming Blu-ray release of cult director Jess Franco’s The Erotic Rites of Frankenstein (1972), starring Alberto Dalbés, Dennis Price, Howard Vernon, Lina Romay, Beatriz Savón, and Britt Nichols. Mastered in HD from the original 35mm negative, the release will be available for purchase on July 28.
After the death of Victor Frankenstein (Dennis Price), two figures vie for control of his metallic-skinned monster (Fernando Bilbao) and the radical technology that created him: the scientist’s daughter, Vera (Beatriz Savón), and the immortal wizard Cagliostro (Howard Vernon), who is assisted by a blind bird-woman with an unquenchable thirst for blood (Anne Libert).
With The Erotic Rites of Frankenstein, controversial filmmaker Jess Franco merges his fondness for old-school horror with his unique and perverse tastes in sex and violence, partly inspired by the garish adult European comics of the early 1970s.
