Four classic horror films starring Peter Cushing. In 'The Abominable Snowman' (1957), gun-runner Tom Friend (Forrest Tucker) embarks on an expedition in search of the fabled creature known as the Yeti or Abominable Snowman. He is joined by botanist John Rollason (Cushing), whose scientific curiosity is at odds with Friend's aim to capture and commercially exploit one of the creatures. In the sci-fi thriller 'Island of Terror' (1966), directed by Terence Fisher, an island is taken over by mutant shell-like creatures that suck out the bones of their prey before killing them, after a cancer research experiment goes very, very wrong. In 'The Blood Beast Terror' (1968), Cushing plays a Victorian English entomologist whose daughter happens to be a giant moth. He moves with her to a quiet village where he can begin work on an insect mate for her. However, his family problems worsen when his winged daughter starts killing people and drinking their blood. 'Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell' (1974) is the finale to Hammer's Frankenstein cycle. A young doctor is interned in the asylum where Baron Frankenstein supposedly perished after being found experimenting on stolen corpses. In the asylum he meets the mysterious Doctor Victor (Cushing) - and gradually realises that Frankenstein is alive and well and continuing his work...
