Millenium Films is releasing another Hammer Collector’s Edition and this time it is for the 1967 horror film Frankenstein Created Woman. I’ve never seen this one but I’m pretty excited for this release since Millenium did a fantastic job with their Dracula: Prince of Darkness release. Based on the special features (listed below), I’d say Millenium is aiming for another quality release with this one.
Here’s the press release with more info on the upcoming Blu-ray:
