Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Tony Nigro
Having produced some of the most frightening horror films of the '50s and '60s -- including Curse of Frankenstein, Curse of the Werewolf, and Dracula: Prince of Darkness -- in 1980 British B-flick studio Hammer Films took over an old manor in the heartland of England to produce their television swan song, Hammer House of Horror. An anthology series that lasted, appropriately, for 13 episodes, the show didn't regularly showcase the studio's infamous stable of actors -- most notably Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing -- but the Hammer stamp of tight suspense and riveting stories was still there. Included in this set are all 13 one-hour chillers in their original broadcast order: "Witching Time," "The Thirteenth Reunion," "Rude Awakening" (with Denholm Elliott), "Growing Pains," "The House That Bled to Death," "Charlie Boy," "Silent Scream" (with Peter Cushing in his final Hammer performance alongside the original Hannibal Lecter, Brian Cox), "Children of the Full Moon," "Carpathian Eagle" (featuring Pierce Brosnan pre-Remington Steele), "Guardian pf the Abyss," "Visitor from the Grave," "The Two Faces of Evil," and the series' final episode, "The Mark of Satan."
