Classic film, good DVD,
This review is from: The Abominable Snowman [DVD]  (DVD)
It seems that out of Icon's Autumn 2011 generally poor quality batch of releases, The Abominable Snowmen stands apart as being a perfectly reasonable quality DVD. The B&W picture is clean enough and is 16:9 enhanced 2.35:1, preserving the original aspect ratio. I didn't notice any colour noise or incorrect interlacing. There's a healthy level of grain and film dirt, clearly not remastered but nothing excessive - perfectly acceptable for a budget DVD release of a film of this age. The sound is clear.
I feel very satisfied at this DVD release of a classic Nigel Kneale story. Take note Icon - this is how they all should be done.

Thanks for the review! This is the only Hammer I would have bought from Icon regardless of the condition as I have all the other original release Anchor Bay films either on VHS or DVD. The original Anchor DVD release is presently selling on Amazon US for between $24 and $182. I'm glad to hear it's the best of the Icon lot.
