Customer Review

on 31 July 2013
Anyone of a gothic turn of mind who remembers the summer of 1977 will have fond memories of Saturday nights when Supernatural was served up on BBC1 to be followed shortly after by a horror double bill on BBC2 under the title of "Dracula, Frankenstein - and Friends!"; happy days indeed, and it's splendid to see the BFI turning their hand to releasing this series after so long.

There are 8 hour-long dramas in the series, all excellently cast; by modern standards they may appear a little slow and studio-bound, but the best of them are superbly creepy. This was a series that got better and better as it went on, and the last 3 stories ("Viktoria", "Night of the Marionettes" and "Dorabella") are superb; indeed, "Dorabella" is one of the best vampire tales I've ever seen dramatised, with many unforgettable moments.

If you enjoyed Ghost Stories for Christmas then you should find much to savour in this set.
