4.0 out of 5 stars THIS is the way to Hammer... Brillo!!! 22 Mar 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars The box of dark pleasures 25 Sep 2006
By russell clarke TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Based on content for my 80 purchase price alone 29 Dec 2006
By I. R. Kerr TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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?

5.0 out of 5 stars The Hammer Collection - Monstrously good fun! 8 April 2010
By Victor HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This interesting box set collects together 21 films from the studio that defined gothic horror from the fifties through to the seventies, Hammer studios. This set concentrates on some of the more interesting output from the studios, with some well chosen films that show off the range of the studios.

As well as the bona fide horror classics (Frankenstein created woman; Dracula, Prince of Darkness etc) there is a great selection of adventure (She), historical fantasy (1 Million years BC), science fiction (Quatermass and the pit), comedy (the Horror of Frankenstein) and psychological thrillers (Demons of the mind). And the piece de resistance, the absolute classic `The Devil Rides Out', one of Christopher Lee's finest moments at the studio.

A seemingly disparate selction, but all with several things in common. A strong sense of imagination permeates, the Hammer team were really creative, and managed to make grand visions come to life on a shoestring budget. There is also a sense of fun - Hammer had a mission in life, to give people a thrill and get them back to the cinema for their next feature. And that's just what is delivered, film after film of thrill after thrill. Perfect entertainment.

The 21 films are collected into 5 booklets, gathered together into one large card outer. There is a feeling of quality and expense about the packaging that seems slightly at odds with the usual Hammer ethos of doing everything as cheaply as possible! There is a booklet with a decent essay about Hammer, and notes on each film. Also included is a set of postcards with reproductions of some of the promotional posters.

All in all, a decent set, and a great way to get hold of some interesting and obscure films.
