Despite the cover of the DVD showing the Hammer logo, Wake Wood is only presented by Hammer, but not officially a Hammer movie. Exclusive Films were involved, but if you watch any of the credits, Hammer Films are not actually listed. Despite this, the film itself is very good, if a little slow in places. But the blood and gore scenes are full on, right from the outset with the dog attack - very bloody and very well done. The film has elements of Pet Sematary (bringing the dead back to life), but has it's own take on the practice, with, again, some quite gruesome scenes for the resurrections, and the creepy locals of Wake Wood, with their terrible secrets and practices, help create a disturbing atmosphere to the whole proceedings. And be prepared - the ending is genuinely horrific. The only shame about Wake Wood is that it wasn't given more of a cinematic release - it was released in one cinema in London and one cinema in Ireland, despite a reasonably good review in The Sunday Times. In my humble opinion, the fact that it is only presented by Hammer makes it more of a curio, rather than a necessity, for Hammer Film afficianados. But it is still a good film - maybe not worth 5 stars, but definitely worth 4.
