This review is from: Hammer Horror Series [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
These eight films are difficult if not impossible to get hold of on region 2 and hardly ever get shown on television. So this set which I bought from Amazon.com is well worth getting, and its quite a bargain, hence it gets 5 stars.
So far I have only seen three of the eight films. Although long ago I may well have watched them all.
Brides of Dracula is a minor classic starring Peter Cushing. Ok its missing Christopher Lee, but its directed by Terence Fisher who made all the best Hammer films.
Kiss of the Vampire has some classic moments although it is let down by a plot with some large holes in it and the absence of Christopher Lee is more important that in Brides of Dracula as they let Noel Willman try and impersonate him which doesn't work!
Paranoica is a clever psychological thriller in black and white with Oliver Reed which has some suspenseful moments and certainly merits a second viewing.
The set is on 2 double-sided discs (two films per side - four films per disc) and is nicely packaged.
