Description by OLDIES.com:
Tales of Frankenstein was directed and conceptualized by Curt Siodmak (I Walked With A Zombie, The Wolfman, Donovan's Brain) for Hammer Pictures who intended to develop it into a television series. Featuring a unique blend of Universal's haunting vision of the monster with Hammer's flair for terror, this unsold pilot provides a horrifying and thoughtful development of the Frankenstein myth.
The Terror: Jack Nicholson plays a French soldier who is stranded on a foreign shore. Haunted by visions of a beautiful girl, he follows her to a ancient castle where the fearful Baron Von Leppe (Boris Karloff) reigns over a desolate land. Driven by his desire to find the ghostlike girl, the soldier descends into an inescapable spiral of horror and mystery. Roger Corman shot The Terror back-to-back with The Raven, utilizing the same sets and crew, including associate producer Francis Ford Coppola.
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 17 ratings.
Tales Of Frankenstein is already on DVD at quite a high price from another studio, with Alpha's DVD you also get a full bonus feature of AIP's The Terror! Two classic horror movies on one great disc, and cool cover art too!
Do not be mislead (but note that I am not complaining) The Terror is the real feature here. It is a very good Coppola/Corman movie with what had to be a real shock/surprise ending when it was released. Tales of Frankenstien in spite of it's top billing is a 30 minute TV show (or perhaps even a pilot for a TV show). It looks to have been made around 1956. It is a simple story of yet another descendent of Baron Von trying to rekindle his work with horrifing results. This time the results are less than horrifing but it does give us a rare peep into a forgotten bit of TV history.
