5.0 out of 5 stars Five star entertainment 1 Oct 2008
By All of them Witches TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Hammer House of Horror, one of the best horror collections you can buy, quite often at a bargainous price, is not to be missed. Allowing for personal tastes the consensus seems to be that there are 10 or 11 of the episodes which are good or very good with 2 or 3 not so good but worth a watch. Personally I would say there is only one real duffer 'Growing Pains' but a few other reviewers have expressed their like for this episode so as I said it all boils down to personal preference.
I'll quickly run thru the episodes in their chronicological order on the disc for ease though as one reviewer stated this was not the order in which they were originally aired.

The House that Bled to Death - A lot of peoples favourite episode concerning a family who have moved into a house where a gruesome murder had taken place. Good solid episode with an appropriate and deserving conclusion!

The Silent Scream - Excellent episode with Peter Cushing as the proprietor of a pet shop with a difference. Incredulous that one reviewer here doesn't like it!

The Two Faces of Evil - Enjoyable, slows to a crawl occasionally but good story and good finale concerning evil doppelgangers.

The Mark of Satan - I'm a little bit ambivalent about this one, interesting though strange exploration of demonic possession.

Witching Time - A 17th century witch returns to haunt the occupants of her old farmhouse. Unremarkable but fine.

Visitor From the Grave - Lots of people don't like this one, I do however. The episode most guilty of staging set pieces which are far fetched if not impossible in light of what is really happening in the story. A woman is haunted by the ghost of a man she has killed. Great ending I thought.

5.0 out of 5 stars A long-neglected gem of a collection 31 Jan 2003
Format:DVD
At its best, this imaginative series was capable of sending a shiver down the spine and, particularly in the case of 'Two Faces of Evil' and 'Children of the Full Moon', it still does. With high production values and some top talent both in front of and behind the cameras, this was an admirable experiment in contemporising traditional horror themes. Almost every genre is represented here, some more effectively than others.
I recall watching most of these shows when they were first broadcast. Although I'm not easily scared, I have to say that 'Two Faces of Evil' has remained with me ever since. It's a mini-masterpiece, played to perfection. Gary Raymond is tremendous as both the gentle dad and the monstrous doppelganger.
Other classy episodes include 'The House That Bled to Death', with a twist ending that's endlessly foreshadowed yet tremendously effective; 'Carpathian Eagle' is an entertaining feminist romp featuring the gorgeous Mrs Sam Torrance and a laughably plain and seedy Pierce Brosnan in his first screen role; 'Rude Awakening' maintains its Dead of Night recurring nightmare theme remarkably well and reminds us what a great actor we had in Denholm Elliot; 'Children of the Full Moon' is flawless from start to finish and has the added bonus of featuring the very beautiful Celia Gregory; 'The Silent Scream' is a taut little story that's fairly gripping without being particularly scary; 'The Thirteenth Reunion' is a refreshingly gruesome tale of everyday cannibals; 'Witching Hour' is reassuringly nasty with plenty of gratuitous nudity; 'Guardians of the Abyss' is intriguing enough to overcome a somewhat faltering finale and some dodgy special effects.

Format:DVD
When I was 10 or 11 years old, there were two TV theme tunes that I always looked forward to hearing on a Saturday night: one was Doctor Who and the other was the atmospheric music that opened this series of programmes. I wasn't alone - Monday morning, in the last year of junior school, always started with gasps of, "Did you see it on Saturday night??" and we'd talk in excitable tones about murderous wooden idols from Africa or the woman driving down country lanes and gorging herself on raw steak. These shows made a big impression on me and I still remembered scenes from them when I purchased these DVDs.

I wasn't sure whether these hour-long shows would stand the test of time when I recently bought the set, but I've been really impressed. Although they bear the "Hammer" name, they are quite different from the enjoyably schlocky melodrama and technicolour goriness of the films of the 60s and 70s - but I think the contemporary everyday settings make them even more effective at being genuinely scary. There is a supernatural element to most of them, but some of them are more like thrillers or extended (and much better) `Tales of the Unexpected'.

The casting is really strong throughout with great British character actors such as Denholm Elliot, Diana Dors (I hadn't watched her in anything for a long while and seeing her in this set was a reminder of why the British public took her to their hearts), Sian Philips - and youthful appearances from Brian Cox and Pierce Brosnan. Apart from the famous names, there are a host of fine actors who regularly appeared on our screens in the 70s and 80s, whose names I had forgotten but whose faces I recognised.
