Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is a very good selection of movies from the Hammer Horror stable. There are four movies in all and this is a brief review of each movie;

HORROR OF DRACULA; AKA 'DRACULA', this was the first appearance of Christopher Lee as the Count and he is very impressive with a great prescence. A good movie, not the very best of Hammer but there is little doubt that Lee and Peter Cushing were a great pairing. The picture is very crisp here and the sound OK.

DRACULA HAS RISEN FROM THE GRAVE; This movie surprised me as I thought it was probably the best of the bunch. Full of striking images and memorable scenes, this could very well be one of the most underrated of the Hammer movies. Christopher Lee doesn't really say much but he dominates every scene he is in and there is an excellent performance from Barbara Ewing as Zena. Again the picture and sound are fine.

THE CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN; Another good movie which is pretty much dominated by Peter Cushing as Baron Frankenstein. He is shown to be totally driven in his quest to create life from death and is completely convincing. He is ably supported by Robert Urquhart as Paul and Christopher Lee as the creature. Lee felt that he looked like a clown in his make-up but he gives a compelling and sympathetic reading of the living dead. The picture is fine yet again but the sound does go out of synch on a few occasions. I tried pausing the DVD player and pressing play and this did seem to help.

FRANKENSTEIN MUST BE DESTROYED; A movie that is completely dominated by Peter Cushing's performance. He positively drips evil and is borderline psychotic but Cushing is always in control.

Although I am a life long fan of Hammer Horror I had only seen the first Peter Cushing "Frankenstein" movie once many years ago and had never seen the first Chris Lee "Dracula". Both films stand up pretty well. I am very familiar with "Risen from the grave" - probably the best of the Lee Dracula's (neck and neck with Prince of Darkness) and "Must be destroyed" is probably the best Hammer Frankenstein and easily the best 4th sequel of any series anywhere.

Great Collection - But Not Upgrade Worthy 15 Feb. 2011
By Joseph Brando - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
If you already own the 4 Hammer films offered in this set, there is no need to upgrade. The movie versions, including menus, are exactly the same as those previously released. In fact, the 2 Dracula films are presented on the exact same flipper disc that was released in the "4 Film Draculas" set a couple years back. Just figured I would go ahead and list this info for those people, like me, who are on board for a good upgrade of the films they love, but don't need it just for a new cover. This set would be best as an introduction to those who are just starting out in the Hammer Horror world, or if you didn't buy the previous DVD releases. All four films are great examples of classic Hammer "Scary Tales"!

this will be an excellent hammer intro for the uninitiated 27 Jun. 2010
By Benstarbuck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
in this TCM collection that comes in early September you've got a really fine set of double features to my mind . you have the first Hammer (color) british takes on Dracula "Horror Of Dracula" and its best sequel (in my opinion) "Dracula has Risen From The Grave" . in their proper aspect ratios and with subtitles . "Has Risen" is the third Christopher Lee Dracula picture after "Horror" 1957/58 started the series . Lee did not reprise the role until 1966 or so with the (not included) "Dracula : Prince Of Darkness" . next you've got Hammer's first Frankenstein picture "The Curse Of Frankenstein" circa 1957/58 and the Fifth (and series director Terence Fisher's personal favorite of the "Frank" pictures) "Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed" . for further critical reading and stills from the films i direct you to Eccentric Cinema . there again , the Frankenstein pictures will be in their proper aspect ratios and include subtitles . if you're fairly new to Hammer films you absolutely can not go wrong here . TCM cares about older pictures and will do these babies proud . prepair to be scared .

More horror story for your money! 4 Mar. 2011
By Robert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I like these quick discs two sided movies. They play especially well on my portable dvd player with nine inch screen that displays movie in fine widescreen format, just like the real movies of yesterday when they were one screen houses.
These are actually not keepsake remasters, but just a quick and easy fix for a nice related subject package of classic movies for those who have seen some, and those who havent seen some, all mixed up in four movie collection.
The only real tricky part is finding the right feature on non labeled discs, other than that, I wish there were many more collections like these with multi features in one package. Thanks TCM, I will buy more.

It is so hard to find Hammer Films! 5 Jun. 2013
By Danny - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Man is it hard to find some of the great Hammer classics these days. You can find older copies of them on DVD...but people want a lot for them. I got on a kick a while back and wanted to watch some of these and I thought that I could find them easily and boy was I wrong. There are also so many random collections of these packaged together that you sometimes have to buy them and end up getting the same movie across different ones just to get the one movie you don't have (hope that makes sense). Anyway, this is one of those collections that I found and bought. It has four great films from the Hammer collection that are transferred nicely on these DVDs. I especially liked seeing the "Frankenstein" movies because it had been such a long time since I've last watched them. This collection is a great place to start to help with a Hammer fix...just be prepared to look endlessly for the others or pay more money. Nice collection, nice transfer, and I would recommend.

4 of the greatest horror movies ever made for $4.50 each 6 May 2013
By Mike - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
If you're a fan of horror, there's only one reason not to purchase this set...you already own all four movies. And depending on the quality of the prints you own, maybe you should consider treating yourself to an upgrade.

I previously reviewed Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed, and encourage you to head on over to that product's page and read my review. "Dracula Has Risen From The Grave" is perhaps the high water mark of the Lee Dracula movies. Both films star legendary "Hammer Girl" Veronical Carlson. In the 40s, Universal Studios had Evelyn "The Screamer" Ankers. Decades later, Hammer had Veronica. Both films are textbook of examples of films that mix non-stop tension with gothic atmosphere and superb character development.

"Horror of Dracula" and "Curse Of Frankenstein" were excellent and effective first steps for the Hammer Horror franchise. In all of the Frankenstein movies, the real monster is Peter Cushing....and he plays the role with megalomaniacal glee. Universal owned the rights to all of their monsters' makeup, so don't expect a bolt-necked Boris Karloff or Lon Chaney lumbering about. In "Curse," the monster (played by Christopher Lee) basically looks like Christopher Lee pushed through a wood chipper. In "Destroyed," it's a normal guy with a brain transplant...because this movie's raison d'être is to show you just how freaking crazy the good baron actually is.

I'm convinced that when it comes to reviews of Hammer Horror films, the people who read them are less "newbies" and more Hammer fans who want to see what other fans have to say. Either way, if you love horror (especially well-crafted, atmospheric horror), you won't find a more essential addition to your library.
