“No-one who saw it lived to describe it!” screamed the tagline for Hammer Films’ Curse of Frankenstein (1957) the first in their long-running movie franchise inspired by Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein novel (or most likely by the success of the earlier Universal Pictures’ adaptations). In the latest issue of Space Monsters, Sascha Cooper continues her analysis of Frankenstein in film by focusing chiefly on Hammer’s output but with a nod towards Frankenstein Meets the Space Monster and Andy Warhol’s Flesh For Frankenstein. You can read this article in Space Monsters issue 4 alongside coverage of Godzilla, Kolchak: The Night Stalker, Logan’s Run, giant monster movies, King Kong, Space:1999 and much more.
Space Monsters is available in print form from Classic Horror Campaign, Amazon.co.uk, Hemlock Books, The Cinema Store, Metaluna Store (Paris), Scary Monsters Scare Store and other outlets. You can also download the full colour digital version from the Dead Good Newsstand.
