Hex Studios To Release Limited Edition Of ‘Frankenstein’s Creature’

Our fellow Scottish horror fiends Hex Studios have announced the upcoming physical release of Sam Ashurst’s Frankenstein’s Creature.

The film, directed by Sam Ashurst and starring James Swanton, is a retelling of Shelley’s classic story from the perspective of the monster. Shot in a single take, Frankenstein’s Creature features a powerhouse performance by Swanton, who, as well as being the film’s sole performer, also scripted the project.

Award-winning filmmaker Sam Ashurst has combined theatre and cinema to bring to life this bold, original, but ultimately faithful take on the much-loved story, and its innovative style and classic inspirations make it a perfect fit for the Hex Studios label.

Speaking about the release, Ashurst says “I’m really proud that Frankenstein’s Creature has found a home at Hex Studios. Sarah, Lawrie and Michael have created a studio that combines arthouse and grindhouse in a really exciting way, using the same kind of classic influences that inspired our film. And they share my love for Graham Humphreys! I’m hoping that, through Hex, a passionate audience of film fans will find and fall in love with James Swanton’s astonishing tribute to Mary Shelley’s classic novel – it’ll certainly be unlike anything they’ve ever seen before.”

Scottish genre outfit Hex Studios have picked up the arthouse horror for an exclusive edition of 200 copies, a nod to the recent 200 year anniversary of Shelley’s novel. The special edition is available for pre-order now from the Hex Studios website, with a release date of March 18th.
