Frankenstein's Daughter Coming To Blu-ray & DVD In October

Frankenstein's Daughter, a cult classic from 1958, is coming to Blu-ray and DVD thanks to the Film Detective. The streaming network and film archive strive to restore and preserve all manner of classic cinema, and they have uncovered a gem here. I remember seeing this at my grandfather's house when I was very young. For a long time was a film I associated with Frankenstein's Monster right alongside the original Universal classic. Directed by Richard E. Cunha, it stars John AshleyHarold Lloyd, Jr., and former Playboy Playmate of the Month Sally Todd. You can read a press release about it down below.

Bringing a fresh twist to Frankenstein films, Frankenstein's Daughter takes place in "modern" Los Angeles, where — despite news reports of a female monster menacing the neighborhood — nothing stops the local sun-soaked teenagers from partying poolside."

Cunha: Filmmaker of the Unknown, a new retrospective from Ballyhoo Motion Pictures, featuring an archival interview with the famed director ● John Ashley: Man from the B's, a new career retrospective featuring film historian C.
