The summer of 1985 was all about Sting. After breaking up the Police, Sting emerged that season with both his classic album The Dream of the Blue Turtles and a leading role in The Bride. He was Dr. Frankenstein and his female monster was none other than Jennifer Beals still hot after Flashdance. It was a match made in Awesome ’80s heaven. They even hired Clancy Brown (SpongeBob SquarePants) as the original monster. Plus extra coolness points for nabbing Alexei Sayle from The Young Ones. Strangely, the film didn’t do well on initial release. The film has gained a cult following over the decades and now the Blu-ray is finally coming out from Scream Factory on September 25. The coolest bonus feature is getting Clancy Brown to talk about his turn as the Monster. Here’s the press release from Scream Factory:
SCREAM FACTORY PRESENTS
IN ITS BLU-RAY DEBUT
ARRIVING SEPTEMBER 25, 2018
Los Angeles, CA – A woman born of electricity. A man driven by obsession. Scream Factory proudly presents The Bride on Blu-ray on September 25, 2018. The electrifying 80s remake of The Bride of Frankenstein comes to the Blu-ray for the first time in a release complete with new bonus features, including new audio commentary and interviews with director Franc Roddam and actor Clancy Brown.
Frankenstein builds the perfect woman — and lives to regret it — in this tantalizing marriage of horror, romance, and unbridled passion! Rock legend Sting (Dune) plays the cunning scientist and Jennifer Beals (Flashdance, The L Word) lends her dramatic presence as his supreme, sublime creation. This sumptuously gothic tale, inspired by the indelible themes and characters originally brought to life by Mary Shelley, follows Frankenstein’s creations as they search for their place in the world — the gorgeous Eva by declaring her independence, and her grotesque intended mate Viktor (Clancy Brown, Highlander) by learning self-worth from a compassionate circus dwarf (David Rappaport, Time Bandits). Can Dr. Frankenstein survive when the monster returns to claim his intended? Alive with brilliant photography and lavish costumes, The Bride invites you to a wedding night you’ll never forget.
