I am sure it will eventually be released. I think it is owned by Universal.

I messaged Universal about this a few months ago through their website and surprisingly enough I received a response. The rep was prompt and courteous but said there were no plans for a release at this time. I made sure to mention this would be the last Cushing Frankenstein film out of the 6 not available on DVD. I love all of the films so it's something I've been wondering about as well.

I'm surprised they released "The Kiss of the Vampire" through Image while others like Brides, Curse, and Evil remain untouched. Maybe if Van Helsing is a huge hit and the Monster Legacy set sells through the roof, we'll see these Hammer films soon. Sure would be nice. Meanwhile I just dust off the VHS now and then.

After watching Van Helsing, this movie may not be the hit that Universal thought it was.

I know the new Hammer box set was just released, but can all of those be purchased separately or are some of the titles exclusive to the set?

They're all available for sale separately.

Based on first weekend box office, Van Helsing looks like a hit.

If and when Universal releases KISS OF THE VAMPIRE and EVIL OF FRANKENSTEIN, it would be great if they'd include both the original theatrical versions and the drastically changed TV versions of both.

The KISS OF EVIL version of the former and the TV print of EVIL feature extensive alternate footage and are not simply edited down. This footage was shot by Universal years after the original films wrapped! These versions used to run on local stations all the time until the early 90s.

They also shot a smaller amount of additional footage for PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (1962), but it was more inconsequential in nature.

It would be wonderful to have both versions on the discs for comparison.

Well, I will always support releasing more. But, I will just settle for the films at this point.

Universal doesn't seem to care too much about their horror catalog...a real shame.
