Synopsis

Double bill of classic Hammer horror films starring Peter Cushing. In 'The Brides of Dracula' (1960), Marianne, a young teacher (Yvonne Monlaur) on her way to a position in Transylvania, helps a young man (David Peel) escape the shackles his mother (Martita Hunt) has put on him. In doing so, she innocently unleashes the horrors of the undead on the local populace, including those at her school for ladies. Luckily for some, Dr Van Helsing (Cushing) is already on his way. In 'The Evil of Frankenstein' (1964), the penniless Baron Frankenstein (Cushing), accompanied by his eager assistant Hans (Sandor Eles), arrives at his family castle near the town of Karlstaad, vowing to continue his experiments in the creation of life. Fortuitously finding the creature he was previously working on, he brings it back to a semblance of life - but requires the services of a mesmerist, Zoltan (Peter Woodthorpe), to successfully animate it. The greedy and vengeful Zoltan secretly sends the monster into town to steal gold and 'punish' the burgomaster and the chief of police, which acts lead to a violent confrontation between the baron and the townspeople.
