4.0 out of 5 stars Review of new 2011 Icon release, 13 Sept. 2011

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Abominable Snowman [DVD] [1957] (DVD)
After my review's of two other Hammer films from Icon (Quatermass Experiment/Quatermass 2 and X the Unknown) I was very trepidatious, to say the least, about this DVD. However of the three it's most certainly the best. Icon have retained the original aspect ratio and the picture (while not outstanding) is good enough and the sound is a similar story. It's a relief as this is a great film with the legendary Peter Cushing and thankfully the quality of print does not spoil the enjoyment. It's a shame this didn't extend to the others I purchased and have sadly had to return for a refund. I'm glad to say this film is recommended.

The best of the bunch in my opinion, as good as the Anchor Bay release in 2000. Shame Icon never included any extras on this, but hey ho for £4.00 who can argue. I just wish that next time Hammer give out their films for release, that they decide against a company that couldn't give a toss whatsoever about the material it releases.
