Reviews

Captain Collier (Patrick Allen) and his band of sailors show up to an English coastal town to investigate reports of Marsh Phantoms who ride by night spreading terror to the town. The Captain suspects that the local reverend (Peter Cushing) might be hiding something. Are the phantoms genuine or a cover for illegal smuggling activities?

Captain Clegg is one of my favourite Hammer films. Stellar performances by Peter Cushing, Michael Ripper and Oliver Reed and a genuine setting make a very entertaining mixture.

The Blu-ray however is a mixed bag. Positive for sure are the interesting extras. Sadly there is no audio commentary. Also the sound is very good. The picture quality however is not convincing. This an old Universal transfer with visible traces of DNR and electronic tampering. Sharpness and detail are pretty low, colors are OK. There is some digital noise present, especially in the dark scenes. The original English title has been computer generated and embossed into the title card. Because of this the title card features some strange noise which even covers the black blanking areas of the windowboxed credit sequence. After the credit sequence the film's aspect ratio changes to something like 2.00:1 which indicates this transfer was originally made from the US version called Night Creatures.

Originally made to be shown as part of a double bill, Captain Clegg easily stands well on its own. Cushing is as magnificent as ever, as is hammer regular, Michael Ripper. The story is one of pirates and ghosts or rather pirates pretending to be ghosts, but like most hammer films the story is only part of its appeal. Full of hammer nostalgia which draws you into what is essentially a boys own adventure. There are better quality hammer blu rays available and this is perhaps not the film to watch if this is the first experience of hammer films. However, to those of us who will be forever woven into the fabric of hammer, this will make an excellent addition to our film collections.

If you like old Hammer films outside of the monster roster of the Mummy,Dracula and Frankenstein et al series then you will like or love this oldie from 1962 called Night Creatures in the USA, set in Romney marsh in Kent in the England of the 1790's with Peter Cushing,Michael Ripper and the erotically exotic Yvonne Romain as hostage of the wicked innkeeper,Mr.Rash...the tale is actor/writer Russell Thorndyke's from the book series Doctor Syn which Disney,I believe,had gotten the film rights to,thus the pseudonym Captain Clegg for the fictional character Dr.Syn although the film is basically the same as the book.

For historical realists the coiffures and idioms are rather anachronistically modern but this is normal in Commonwealth kino so I don't withold a star for that nor for the lack of the standard extra when all else fails,the trailer, especially because the doku is so good about the background of the film and is thirty minutes long and is complemented by another extra,a six and a half minute featurette on the carriages featured in Hammer historical films,very interessant,whereas the third extra is a two and half minute rolling photo gallery,also very fine...three fine extras in all and good menu's but no foreign lingo options for non-Anglophones.

A booklet and trailer for fans even without a commentary would've been better but the documentary is almost worth the price of the region 2 dvd itself which looks great even if not blue-ray...this is one of Hammers best films,somewhat redolent of their early pirate films and is one hour and eighteen long,not one hour and twenty minutes long as the case says and the whole dvd programme itself totals almost 2 hours...

Very dissapointrd in this blu ray. Falsley advertised as progressive scan this interlaced video on my 70" Aquos is jittery and loaded with digital artifacts. It is mostly unwatchable. Bummer! It's a very cool hammer film but mishandled by those who produced the blu ray.. Shame on them.

An enjoyable story and of course a good cast so strong enough to grab attention through to the end. Unfortunately the image quality is not good and it seems pointless to put it on blu-ray. The camera work is also poor, even for a film of this age: the "phantoms" (which actually do not come out very often) appear in front of a totally black background at one point, and in some places the film changes from day to night and back to daytime again within the same sequence. Despite that, it's still a another good old "mild horror" from Hammer.

Gorgeous print, informative supplemental features, overall a beautifully produced product and I do mean, produced, from top to bottom it's lovingly assembled.

Essentially this is a remake of the George Arliss version of "Dr Syn" with the lead character renamed as Dr Blyss to avoid copyright problems with Disney who were making their own version of the story at the same time. Peter Cushing is excellent as the pirate parson with good support from a range of Hammer regulars and the whole film is fairly faithful to the initial Russell Thorndyke book on which it is based. No problems with the quality of the film on my version and an interesting account of the making of the film as an extra.
