AICN HORROR Contest: Win a BluRay/DVD of Kino Lorber’s release of DR. JEKYLL & MR. HYDE (1920)!
Greetings, all. Ambush Bug here with another special AICN HORROR: ZOMBIES & SHARKS contest. I’ll be reviewing Kino Lorber’s rerelease of DR. JEKYLL & MR. HYDE this Friday in my regular weekly column. The classic silent film is directed by John S. Robertson and starring John Barrymore in his iconic dual role!
This rerelease is chock fill of extras including an earlier 1912 filming of DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE from the Thanhouser studio, starring James Cruze (12 min., courtesy of Film Preservation Associates); a 15 minute cut of the rival 1920 production of DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE, starring Sheldon Lewis and produced by Louis B. Mayer; "Dr. Pyckle and Mr. Pride", a 1925 slapstick parody starring Stan Laurel; and "The Transformation Scene", a rare 1909 audio recording. Plus the film is clearer and more vivid than ever before making it almost a completely new experience to watch. Having seen what Kino Lorber can do with their recent NOSFERATU rerelease, I can’t wait to see this new version of this classic film.
So how do you win this prize? Well, I’m interested in stories of the very first horror movie you ever saw. Tell me what that film was and why it stuck out to you and if I’m either thrilled or entertained or even endeared to your PARAGRAPH LONG ENTRY, you may be one of the five proud owners of either the BluRay or DVD release of Kino Lorber’s DR. JEKYLL & MR. HYDE. Please specify if you prefer DVD or Bluray! DON’T FORGET TO ADD YOUR FULL ADDRESS and CLICK THIS LINK and you could be a big winner with all the bragging rights that go with it! Please specify whether you want DVD or BluRay!
Best of luck! Check out the transformation scene which still blows me away below!
