5.0 out of 5 stars Based on content for my £80 purchase price alone, 29 Dec 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Ultimate Hammer Collection [DVD] (DVD)
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 universal mummy set is available on R1, as are all the major monster series..

Since I wrote that in 2006 I have got all the great Universal monster series in the brilliant Monster Legacy set which had the small horror icon busts and is now being touted at daft prices. The Monster Legacy [DVD]
I'd still like a Paul Naschy werewolf box-set though.

Don't I know it now, but back then I was in a far better paid job and the price seemed ok at that time. At £30 it's a far better deal.
