Scream Factory has announced that Franc Roddam's The Bride will arrive for the first time on Blu-ray on September 25th. Not really the eighties classic you remember, however, I ask that you give it another shot. Why? Certainly, the performances by Sting (Dune) and Jennifer Beals (Flashdance) are forgettable. It is the performance by Clancy Brown (Highlander) that warrants a second viewing. His adventure and friendship with David Rappaport are the true heart of this film. Hopefully, we can bring you a review for this film in September! #AFJ4LIFE
Press Release: A woman born of electricity. A man driven by obsession. Scream Factory proudly presents The Bride on Blu-ray on September 25, 2018. The electrifying 80s remake of The Bride of Frankenstein comes to the Blu-ray for the first time in a release complete with new bonus features, including new audio commentary and interviews with director Franc Roddam and actor Clancy Brown.
Frankenstein builds the perfect woman — and lives to regret it — in this tantalizing marriage of horror, romance, and unbridled passion! Rock legend Sting plays the cunning scientist and Jennifer Beals (Flashdance, The L Word) lends her dramatic presence as his supreme, sublime creation. This sumptuously gothic tale, inspired by the indelible themes and characters originally brought to life by Mary Shelley, follows Frankenstein’s creations as they search for their place in the world — the gorgeous Eva by declaring her independence, and her grotesque intended mate Viktor (Clancy Brown, Highlander) by learning self-worth from a compassionate circus dwarf (David Rappaport, Time Bandits). Can Dr. Frankenstein survive when the monster returns to claim his intended? Alive with brilliant photography and lavish costumes, The Bride invites you to a wedding night you’ll never forget.
