Great news for indie writer / director / producer William Winckler as news reaches us that his extraordinarily long-titled William Wincklerís Frankenstein vs The Creature From Blood Cove will finally be released on DVD (by Doomsday) on Oct 4th from Amazon.com.
The black and white film is a loving homage to the great Universal, AIP and Hammer films of the 40s, 50s and 60s and takes place in a remote laboratory near the California coast where a trio of scientists attempt to resurrect Frankensteinís monster to combat a previously gone wrong experiment that resulted in a half-human amphibian abomination.
The DVD features not only the 90-minute film, but also numerous extras, including a director's commentary track, a 'making of' featurette and the theatrical trailer.
WWFVTCFBC stars Larry Butler (Lost in the USA, Elvis is Alive), Dezzi Rae Ascalon and Corey J. Marshall, and includes special appearances by Butch Patrick (The Munsters), Lloyd Kaufman (The Toxic Avenger, Terror Firmer) and the ubiquitous Ron Jeremy.
The website www.williamwincklerproductions.com, is also scheduled to launch October 4, the same date as the picture's Amazon.com release.
