    Too cool! This is one of the very few times in my life I've ever wished I could be in Jersey!

    Maybe somebody will sneak in a video camera for us. ;)

    one word...

    FINALLY!

    I mean, jeez! They guy has been promising a new master and a VHS, which was held up because he was sick and all... But still! I was afraid we'd never see it, a showing is much different than a tape, but since I can't make it to NJ... Somebody better get off their ass! Its an old fucker who owns this, he can keel over at any minute! Not to mention, if its the only surviving print I'd be duplicating that shit before I'd go any further, what if something were to happen at the showing? Anything could happen! Jeez!

    Frankenstein is a favorite of mine, I even own an 8mm copy of Whale's Bride, I've been waiting for this for a long time. I hope it's release is coming soon, hell, I'll start a production company just for this release if that's what needs to be done! :D

    A truly unique event for Frankenstein fans will be unspooling at the Landmark Loew's Jersey Theater (at Journal Square in Jersey City, NJ) Saturday, April 26 and Sunday, April 27: the theatrical re-premiere of Thomas Edison's 1910 film of FRANKENSTEIN. This movie was long thought lost until collector Alois Dettlaff of Wisconsin revealed that he had a print in his archives; after holding off from allowing it to be screened for copyright concerns, he has now authorized its DVD release in the near future, as well as the Jersey Theater showings.

    Edison's FRANKENSTEIN is just part of the weekend's programs, however. Saturday's show will also include James Whale's 1931 FRANKENSTEIN, in a new print that restores censored scenes; THIRD DIMENSIONAL MURDER, a rare 1941 Frankenstein short presented in 3-D (glasses provided); a collection of Universal Frankenstein trailers; and Mel Brooks' YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN. Sunday's lineup consists of the Edison film; Hammer's THE REVENGE OF FRANKENSTEIN in a dye-transfer Technicolor archival print; THIRD DIMENSIONAL MURDER; Frankenstein trailers from the '50s through the '90s; and YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN. Admission for each day's program is $7 for adults, $4 for children and seniors under 12; go to www.loewsjersey.org for more info. (thanks to Fangoria.com)

    I remember the famous still from this film haunting me when I was a kid. I never thought that I'd ever see it. I can't wait for the DVD! I wonder if it will be on a short film compilation or something since its runtime is only 14min.

    Wow! I too was haunted by that famous still from the film. But I've never seen it. Is the film touring around major cities, or is this a once off showning?

    OK, now I'm getting nervous...

    :nervous:

    Based on how the ownder of the film has been such a dick about it for the past several years, it sounds like his son is just as bad... If this is true, he's going to milk it for all its worth, one very limited edition at a time... :mad: Somebody needs to DVD-R this shit and bootleg his ass!

    MC, my little sis lives in North Jersey. If I would have known this, I would have begged her to go there to pick one up for me. Then, I would have recorded it for everyone on the forum, just for spite!! I am so pissed!!

    Window framed, hot dog, he's got some sense, even if it does have logos on the corners.

    Actaully, I find the whole thing repugnant. This jerk-off owns the movie, great. But they way he's using it is awful. If I had any interest in seeing this film - it is diminished knowing this idiot will get some proceeds from it.

    Great movie plot: deranged fans sacrafice selfish holder of old horror movie in order to rise in their religous sect, Frankentology.
