One of the earliest examples of body horror in any form of media – well before David Cronenberg made his name in the genre – is the 1920 novel Les Mains d’Orlac (The Hands of Orlac) by French author Maurice Renard. The story has become synonymous with the horror genre that it has been adapted for film 4 times so far, the first a German Expressionist take from 1924 by Robert Wiene and starring Conrad Veidt; the second, Mad Love, introduced American audiences to a Hungarian actor who had previously made a name for himself in Fritz Lang’s M (1931) and Alfred Hitchcock’s The Man Who Knew Too Much (1934), Peter Lorre. Originally released as part of the Hollywood Legends of Horror DVD set, Warner Bros. has revisited the film for a stand alone Blu-ray release as part of the Warner Archives line.
