B-movie extraordinaire Roger Corman’s last film. The ultimate weapon, which was meant to be safe for humankind, produces global side-effects, including time slides and disappearances. The scientist behind the project and his car are transported from the year 2031 to 1817's Switzerland, where he finds Dr. Victor Frankenstein and his contemporaries.

Before and after the film we invite you to take part in something REALLY SPECIAL - a crafts workshop in which we're aiming to create a range of Frankenstein's Monster faces influenced by the screen interpretations of it through the ages. We ask for £2 suggestion donation on the night towards materials or you can bring your own. We'll display all the faces in our gallery space until the end of the season (end of November).

This is the second film in our FRANKENSTEIN FOREVER season – a celebration of the cinematic legacy of Mary Shelley’s novel. Although there have been numerous straight adaptations of her gothic masterpiece, this season brings you some of the weirdest, wackiest and most bizarre films inspired by Shelley’s brilliant imagination. 2018 marks 200 years since the publication of Frankenstein. Reckon you can survive all six screenings? Collect your season card at The Rocky Horror Picture Show and get a stamp at every film to get your exclusive FRANKENSTEIN FOREVER tote bag. 

Tickets available for the other screenings here:

Deptford Cinema’ new film and book club will also be screening Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein alongside reading the original novel on Sunday 4thNovember.

A lot of purposely overstated gore

Corman here more than holds his own as a horromeister
