One of two 20th Century-Fox horror melodramas released in 1942 (Dr. Renault's
Secret was the second), The Undying Monster is a well-crafted variation on
Universal's "Wolf Man" series. Ever since the suicide of its patriarch, the
Hammonds, an old and wealthy English family has seemingly lived under a curse.
When a number of murders occur on the Hammond estate, Scotland Yard inspector
Bob Curtis (James Ellison) and his garrulous female assistant Christy (Heather
Thatcher) are sent out to investigate. Everyone on the premises-Helga Hammond
(Heather Angel), her brother Oliver (John Howard), family doctor Geoffrey Covert
(Bramwell Fletcher), family servants Mr. and Mrs. Walton (Halliwell Hobbes and
Eily Malyon)-seems to know more than he or she is letting on. Only in the final
few minutes of the film is the horrible family secret revealed and the murderer
dispensed with. Atmospherically directed by John Brahm on several impressive
standing sets (that gigantic stained-glass window is a knockout!), The Undying
Monster is a model "B" picture, hampered only by Heather Thatcher's intrusive
comedy relief.

REVIEWS

by Eric Donovan

In The Undying Monster, a wealthy but cursed family is plagued by an ancestor
believed to have sold his soul centuries ago to the devil (or so the legend
goes). This monster now attacks people who wander the woods alone on moonlit
nights. Creating the template for British crime procedurals for generations to
come, a sardonic and weathered detective (James Ellison) agrees to help a brazen
and skeptical heiress (played by cult icon Heather Angel) to get to the bottom
of the curse while a twitchy, doomsayer butler warns them all of the grave,
unspeakable things the curse has wrought.

The film effectively maintains an atmosphere of dread despite scenes with
Victorian-era DNA testing and the sudden realization that the empty sarcophagus
in the basement might be a clue. And under the claustrophobic lens of Lucien
Ballard (The House on Telegraph Hill, The Wild Bunch), the family's sweeping
mansion begins to feel like a gothic prison.

DVD extras include "Concerto Macabre: The Films of John Brahm," a 15-minute
retrospective of director's work, trailer, advertising images and an overview of
the box set's restoration process.


Some IMDB review

Enjoyed taping this film recently, which was shown during the early hours of the
AM. It is a great picture from the 1940's and director John Brahm, who also
directed such film greats as, "Hangover Square",'45 and "The Lodger",'44,
starring Laid Cregar. Twentieth Century-Fox produced this film which is from a
good novel taken from Jessie Douglas Kerruish's 1936 book. It is a tale of a
family cursed since the Crusades and is rather moody stuff, quite spoilt by the
British censor's scissors. Not only did he remove the carefully photographed
final metamorphosis, leaving audiences to wonder why the dim thing that the
police shot should suddenly look like John Howard, but he also insisted on the
title being changed to The Hammond Mystery. Fortunately enough of Brahm's
brilliance was devoted to less shocking sequences so that most of his mood
remained. Lucien Ballard swung his camera round as ancient room, alighting on
odd objects at each dour bong of midnight. He also showed a large stain glass
window which made the old homestead very creapy. The phrase: When the stars are
bright on a frosty night, Beware the baying in the rocky lane" You will have to
see the picture to find out what the MONSTER REALLY IS !

the first time I saw this horror classic was on TV in the 1950s and it really
scared me particularly the ending when the monsters face is shown as it appears
on the side of the rocks .And I couldn't sleep that night because I kept seeing
the monsters face.And after for several years of searching for it I went to a
movie show in New York City and found it and of course purchased it.And have
watched it several times over the past years .And indeed enjoyed it even
more.And the entire cast from john Howard heather angel James Ellison halliwell
Hobbes and the rest all did a spectacular job.And the spooky music and foggy
sets added to the creepies of the movie .Excellent Movie Classic

PLEASE NOTICE

This is intended to be played on a PC or a HTPC. If it works on your standalone
player, good for you. You can always convert it to a regular DVD using tools as
ConvertXtoDVD.

Size has been calculated in order to get the optimum PQ without oversizing the
file, hence the irregular size of the file (not the usual 700Mb/1.4Gb rip). A
rate of Bits/(Pixel*Frame) around 0.3 is perfect, above that point, picture
quality becomes virtually the same to the original source.

Check you have installed the right codecs, as listed in this .nfo file, before
trying to play it. VLC will play this file without having to install any codec.

If you don't like the codec(s), container, resolution, file size, languages or
any technical aspect on this rip, keep it to yourself and if you're able, go and
do your own.

Serious feedback on quality will always be welcome.
