By Fallen TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 1 Oct. 2008
Format: DVD
Hammer House of Horror, one of the best horror collections you can buy, quite often at a bargainous price, is not to be missed. Allowing for personal tastes the consensus seems to be that there are 10 or 11 of the episodes which are good or very good with 2 or 3 not so good but worth a watch. Personally I would say there is only one real duffer 'Growing Pains' but a few other reviewers have expressed their like for this episode so as I said it all boils down to personal preference.
I'll quickly run thru the episodes in their chronicological order on the disc for ease though as one reviewer stated this was not the order in which they were originally aired.

The House that Bled to Death - A lot of peoples favourite episode concerning a family who have moved into a house where a gruesome murder had taken place. Good solid episode with an appropriate and deserving conclusion!

The Silent Scream - Excellent episode with Peter Cushing as the proprietor of a pet shop with a difference. Incredulous that one reviewer here doesn't like it!

The Two Faces of Evil - Enjoyable, slows to a crawl occasionally but good story and good finale concerning evil doppelgangers.

The Mark of Satan - I'm a little bit ambivalent about this one, interesting though strange exploration of demonic possession.

Witching Time - A 17th century witch returns to haunt the occupants of her old farmhouse. Unremarkable but fine.

Visitor From the Grave - Lots of people don't like this one, I do however. The episode most guilty of staging set pieces which are far fetched if not impossible in light of what is really happening in the story. A woman is haunted by the ghost of a man she has killed. Great ending I thought.

At its best, this imaginative series was capable of sending a shiver down the spine and, particularly in the case of 'Two Faces of Evil' and 'Children of the Full Moon', it still does. With high production values and some top talent both in front of and behind the cameras, this was an admirable experiment in contemporising traditional horror themes. Almost every genre is represented here, some more effectively than others.
I recall watching most of these shows when they were first broadcast. Although I'm not easily scared, I have to say that 'Two Faces of Evil' has remained with me ever since. It's a mini-masterpiece, played to perfection. Gary Raymond is tremendous as both the gentle dad and the monstrous doppelganger.
Other classy episodes include 'The House That Bled to Death', with a twist ending that's endlessly foreshadowed yet tremendously effective; 'Carpathian Eagle' is an entertaining feminist romp featuring the gorgeous Mrs Sam Torrance and a laughably plain and seedy Pierce Brosnan in his first screen role; 'Rude Awakening' maintains its Dead of Night recurring nightmare theme remarkably well and reminds us what a great actor we had in Denholm Elliot; 'Children of the Full Moon' is flawless from start to finish and has the added bonus of featuring the very beautiful Celia Gregory; 'The Silent Scream' is a taut little story that's fairly gripping without being particularly scary; 'The Thirteenth Reunion' is a refreshingly gruesome tale of everyday cannibals; 'Witching Hour' is reassuringly nasty with plenty of gratuitous nudity; 'Guardians of the Abyss' is intriguing enough to overcome a somewhat faltering finale and some dodgy special effects.

At last, some proper old-fashioned hammer horrors! They don't make them like this anymore. Just the actors are enough to terrify you, no special effects necessary! The stuff that childhood nightmares are made of! Brilliant buy!! These are a one off, only one of this series was ever made. Well worth the price for 13 episodes of British horror!

Televised in 1980, here are 13 hour long episodes- all self contained with shock endings - some predictable, some not. They're never out-and-out horror but very disturbing all the same.
Very good value despite being a mixed bag. Reading the other reviews it seems everyone has a different opinion on the best and worst......
Most seem to have watched this in 1980 and I'm no exception- the theme music was scarily familiar- you'll be humming it for ages......
The production values are very 'Hammer'-like. A lot of episodes shot in various country mansions in the Home Counties using cheap TV actors.
As a side issue, they were televised weekly in a different order to that on this DVD. The episode order in 1980 was: 5,10, 7,13, 1, 8, 2, 9, 11, 12, 6, 3, 4.
1/ THE HOUSE THAT BLED TO DEATH 8/10
A young couple (Nicholas Ball and Rachel Davies) with their little girl move into an innocent semi-detached- then things start to go wrong. They discover the house has a nasty history.......
It doesn't take long to start acting up- and it's always the family pet that suffers first! It has a very ordinary family under great strain- and especially where kids are involved your heart goes in your mouth.
Very effective.
2/ THE SILENT SCREAM 9/10
Another classic.
An ex-con (a youthful Brian Cox) is given a job by a nice pet-store owner (guess who) with a penchant for cages.
Peter Cushing is chilling and very very good.
What kind of mind thought of this? No violence, no bloodshed, no aliens or monsters but this will stay with you forever (I can remember lying awake as a kid trying to figure ways to escape.......)
3/ THE TWO FACES OF EVIL 6/10
A perfect family on holiday picks up a hitch-hiker with depressingly inevitable consequences.
