This is a neatly packaged box set which is something of a must-have item for any Hammer Horror fan or indeed any fan of classic British cinema.

The set contains 21 films on 21 DVDs, including some of Hammer's most famous and best-loved movies - films such as Dracula Prince Of Darkness, She, Plague Of The Zombies, The Devil Rides Out and Quatermass And The Pit.

There is also an information booklet, a set of postcards and some interesting extras on some of the discs. For instance the Dracula Prince Of Darkness disc contains the excellent documentary 'The Many Faces Of Christopher Lee' featuring the man himself talking about his long and varied film career with clips from some of his most renowned films. On the To The Devil... A Daughter disc there is an amusing onstage interview with regular Hammer stuntman Eddie Powell who candidly recalls the time when he had to double for Chris Lee in a nude scene!

There are a few turkeys as well in this particular box set - Prehistoric Women and The Vengeance Of She are exceptionally bad and Straight On Till Morning is just plain weird. On the whole though this is a very good package at a very reasonable price and is probably the best Hammer DVD box set available to date.

Format: DVD
Though of course you have to consider that some of the films here do not see the legendary British studio at the top of their game. That can be weighed up against the fact that some of these films are seeing the light of day (as far as I am aware) on DVD for the very first time though again that may not be a good thing in some cases.
Unfortunately this box set omits some of the true greats of the Hammer stable -"The Horror Of Dracula", the finest movie they ever made, "The Curse Of Frankenstein" "The Vampire Lovers, The Curse Of The Werewolf" or The Mummy" (though some of these are available in a separate box set) but as a means of accessing a great swathe of their output it will be hard to beat.
"Blood From The Mummies Tomb" (1971) has the spirit of an Egyptian high priestess take over the body of one of the team who discover her tomb. Corny, hammy but tremendous fun and quite spooky in parts.
"Demons Of The Mind" (1972)stars Patrick McGee and involves a web of incest, perversion and satanic possession .Being the seventies it's more alluded to than explicit and is a bit silly though the bare bones of an intruding tale is there.
"The Devil Rides Out" ( 1968) is based on a Dennis Wheatley novel stars Christopher Lee and sees a group of Satanists invoking the powers of darkness as Satanists are wont to do. It's a solid story proficiently told as is often the case with Hammer.
"Viking Queen" (1967) is loosely based around Boudica, s revolt against the Romans in 60/61 A.D. and has the memorable blooper of someone wearing a wristwatch and the title rather overlooks the fact that Boudica was a Celtic Queen. Featuring Carita, s only screens appearance and it's quickly apparent that she was chosen for her magnificent bosom rather than her acting ability.

Ok so it would have been good to get ALL the Hammer Dracula, Frankenstein and the Mummy films here but we haven't.
What we do have is a great cross-section of the studio's movies. Some OK like The Viking Queen and The Vengeance of She, some great Plague of the Zombies, The Reptile, and some truly superb She, Dracula Prince of Darkness, Quatermass and the Pit. There are no real stinkers here... SORRY I wrote this before I watched Prehistoric Women again....ouch!
The only down side with boxes like this is that we all have different ideas of our favourite movies. Personally I would have left out a few thrillers and put in more horror, although some of these movies I have not seen for well over a decade so may grow on me after a few viewings.
I would have liked The Gorgon and Creatures The World Forgot but there will, no doubt, be filler box sets to follow.
There's a few documentaries which add extra information and are a welcome addition.
It is by no means THE definitive Hammer collection although it could be just that to a few people.
As so many horror box sets are being released what I need now are the Universal Mummy series, Christopher Lee's Fu Manchu movies and the Paul Naschy Werewolf movies, any studio executives out there reading these comments?

The Hammer Collection comprises 21 of the company’s films, in release date order, from the Hammer Archives.

.
1965 – She

. . . This is an early collaboration of Sir Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing OBE for the Hammer Studio of H Rider Haggard’s “She”.

Ayesha also known as “She who must be obeyed” (Ursula Andress) is looking for the love of her life (Kilikrates) who her high priest Billali (Christopher Lee) believes has been reincarnated as Leo Vincey (John Richardson) one of a team of tomb seekers lead by Major Holley (Peter Cushing) and they are accompanied by the Major’s valet Job (played by Bernard Cribbins). Will Leo fall for the “charms” of Ayesha or will he see her for who she really is? Also appearing is Andre Morell as Haumeid, the leader of a local tribe.

.
1965 – The Nanny

. . . Bette Davies stars as the faithful (and overbearing) family nanny. James Villers is the domineering husband, Wendy Craig as the fragile wife and William Dix as the young son Joey.

Joey is returning home after a stay at a special “school” and he appears to have a case of the Omens. He was sent away when he stopped eating and sleeping following the death of his little sister. Everyone believes that he killed her, but he insists that it wasn’t his fault and only his neighbour Bobbie Medman (Pamela Franklin), daughter of the doctor upstairs.

There is an audio commentary by Jimmy Sangster the man who turned Marryam Modell’s novel into the screenplay.

.
1966 – Dracula, Prince of Darkness

. . . Starting with a recap of the previous (1957) film Dracula (sadly not included in the set) this is an enjoyable outing for the blood thirsty Count Dracula (Christopher Lee).
