Director Terence Fisher (The Curse of Frankenstein, Dracula, The Hound of the Baskervilles) transformed the fate of Hammer Pictures with his vibrant and explicit series of gothic horror films, which would become the studio's signature style for nearly two decades. Fisher continued his winning streak for the studio with this tale of scientific debauchery, which remains one of Hammer Films finest achievements.

Doctor and amateur sculptor Georges Bonnet (Anton Diffring; Circus of Horrors, Fahrenheit 451) has discovered a murderous method of maintaining his youth, once every ten years he murders a young woman and removes her parathyroid glands to replace his own. But after 104 years, he's run into some problems. His collaborator is now too old to perform the surgical procedure, and a detective is on his case. In desperation Bonnet blackmails another surgeon (Christopher Lee) into performing the procedure by threatening the life of Janine Dubois (Hazel Court), a woman who both men desire.

With cinematography by Jack Asher (whose Bava-esque use of colours lend the film an almost dreamlike quality) and set-design by Bernard Robinson who could miraculously produce lavish and expensive looking sets on a tight budget, Eureka Entertainment is proud to present The Man Who Could Cheat Death available in the UK for the first time on 21st September 2015 on Blu-ray in a special dual-format edition.

  • Brand new 1080p high-definition transfer in the film's original aspect ratio, with exclusive digital restoration
  • Optional English subtitles for the dead and hard-of-hearing
  • Exclusive new video interviews with critic and novelist Kim Newman and author and historian Jonathan Rigby
  • Full colour booklet featuring new writing by author Marcus Hearn, author of The Hammer Story: The Authorised History of Hammer Films, and archival imagery
