This nifty little double disc package contains four creepy movies made by Hammer in the 1960s.

Here's a summary of the four films:

Disc One
THE TWO FACES OF DR. JEKYLL (1960) * * * *
A.K.A. HOUSE OF FRIGHT & JEKYLL'S INFERNO
Screen Ratio: 2.35:1
Running Time: 88 minutes
Directed by Terence Fisher
Starring Paul Massie, Dawn Addams, Christopher Lee, David Kossoff, Oliver Reed

Dr. Jekyll (Paul Massie) develops a personality-changing drug and transforms himself from a crusty, bearded old sod into a young, handsome, but completely immoral, man-about-town using the alias of Mr. Hyde. When Jekyll/Hyde discovers that his beautiful but unfaithful wife, Kitty (Dawn Addams), is having an affair with his friend, Paul Allen (Christopher Lee), a compulsive gambler, he plots a wicked revenge....

THE CURSE OF THE MUMMY'S TOMB (1964) * * * *
Screen Ratio: 2.35:1
Running Time: 80 minutes
Directed by Michael Carreras
Starring Ronald Howard, Terence Morgan, Fred Clark, Jeanne Roland, Michael Ripper

In Egypt, at the beginning of the 20th Century, an archaeological expedition discovers the tomb of a Pharoah called Ra. The expedition's financier, an American called Alexander King, has plans to display the artefacts in a sort of travelling sideshow with the mummy as the star attraction. Unfortunately his plans hit a bit of a setback when the mummy comes back to life and starts killing people associated with the expedition....

Disc Two
THE GORGON (1964) * * *
Screen ratio: 1.

Icons of Horror: Hammer Films (REGION 1) (NTSC)
Hammer added another 'classic' monster with Terence Fisher's THE GORGON (1964). Filled with chilling menace, the film is set in the Transylvanian village of Vandorf, terrorized by a series of killings in which the victims have turned to STONE. The Gorgon, Magaera, is found in the nearby ruins of the Castle Borski, but the discoverer is himself turned to stone, having just time to summon help in the form of his son and his son's tutor, Professor Meinster ( Christopher Lee, in a fine set of whiskers and playing for once, the avenger )! Eventually the Gorgon, is found to be in possession of the beautiful Carla Hoffman (Barbara Shelly) assistant and ex-patient of the sinister Professor Namaroff ( Peter Cushing ). Roy Ashton's make-up for the Gorgon, haloed with a hissing, striking frieze of serpents, makes Megaera, a true and unique female monster

Hammer Horror turned out a lot of now-classic movies, particularly their adaptations of the Dracula and Frankenstein stories (and their varying sequels). But "Icons of Horror Collection: Hammer Films" focuses instead of some of their less well-known movies -- tales of gorgons, mummies, murders and the legendary Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde.

"The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb" kicks in when a mummy is uncovered in Egypt by Sir Giles Dalrymple, Annette Dubois, and John Bray. But after it is co-opted by the greedy showbizzer Alexander King, it vanishes without a trace. Then King and Giles are found strangled -- and the mummy seems intent on killing anyone who violated its tomb.

And in "Scream of Fear," wheelchair-bound Penny Appleby (Susan Strasberg) travels to her father's Riviera estate -- and that night, she is shocked to see his dead body propped up in a storehouse. His body keeps appearing, but it always vanishes before she can show it to someone. Is Penny losing her mind, or has her genial stepmother Jane (Ann Todd) murdered him?

The weakest entry has to be "The Two Faces Of Dr. Jekyll," in which Dr. Henry Jekyll is trying to find a way to access humanity's "dark" and "light" side... and fails to notice that his wife is having an affair with his buddy Paul (Christopher Lee). Jekyll ends up accessing his own dark side -- called "Edward Hyde" -- and soon discovers that Hyde is quickly overwhelming him.

Finally, "The Gorgon" is loose in a small German town in the early 1900s, but for some reason no one will acknowledge that people are being turned to stone. After his brother and father are killed, the incredibly annoying Paul Heitz (Richard Pasco) is determined to find the creature that did it, with the help of his mentor (Christopher Lee).

It is inevitable with a selection of films in one package, that some will be better than others. This collection comes out pretty well. Let's deal with them in order of merit.

The best of the bunch is 'Scream of Fear' or to give it it's English title 'Taste of Fear'. This was the best of the psychological thrillers that 'Hammer' produced. There is an excellent cast with Susan Strasberg, Ann Todd, Ronald Lewis and Christopher Lee. It has a twist ending and is also shot in black and white.

Then we have 'The Gorgon'. The only thing wrong with the Gorgon, is the Gorgon itself, which could have been improved upon by the make-up department, otherwise it is a very atmospheric film with Peter Cushing and Barbara Shelley.

Christopher Lee pops up again in 'The Two Faces of Dr Jekyll' and steals the film from Paul Massie. This film got short shrift from the critics, but I found it very watchable.

Last and least, the only dud, 'The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb, which I found to be a yawn, but with three good films out of 4, there is no real cause for complaint here.
