England's most successful independent film company, the "fear factory" of Hammer Studios, has a history filled with feuds, censorship battles and streaks of luck both good and bad. Now the legacy of horror returns, featuring interviews with such Hammer legends as Raquel Welch, Veronica Carlson, Caroline Munro, Ingrid Pitt, Jimmy Sangster, Hazel Court, Martine Beswicke, Freddie Francis, Val Guest and Ray Harryhausen. Plus you'll be treated to behind-the-scenes home movies and nonstop shock scenes from over 40 classic films, including Horror of Dracula, Curse of Frankenstein, The Devil Rides Out, Curse of the Werewolf and many more! It's the definitive study of one of the greatest names in horror!

I did not know this documentary was available untill I had rented the dvd. After watching this well crafted movie I became even a bigger fan of the Hammer Horror series. A look at inside the studio that created all the classic horror films I watched as a kid and to see Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee on camera talking about these wonderful movies is such a treat. I really enjoyed this dvd.You will too!

The documentary is interesting, of course, but it seems to be sort of a budget production, with archival material that ranges from acceptable to, well,... scans from cheap horror magazines. More, a lot of it appears to have been transferred from videotape. Considering that the Hammer movies themselves are so lush, it seems a pity that the definitive Hammer documentary should be so cheap-jack. And I would have liked to hear about Amicus and the other Hammer offshoots, but I can see how that would be a problem to arrange. As with many British documentaries, it seems awfully formal at times. I don't want to make it sound all that bad, though. There are interesting interviews (many that I'd never seen before), behind-the-scenes home-movies, production footage and other surprises. In all, it's well worth the price if you are a fan of Hammer, or Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee, who happen to be the hosts of the documentary!.

I just finished watching this documentary and have to say that it is a must for fans of hammer films. It was interesting to hear about the attitudes (both negative and postive) that the crew had towards these films. Also some of my favorite actors and actresses appear in very rare interviews- i.e. Ingrid Pit, Peter Cushing etc...

The only reason I give this title 3 stars is due to the sound mix. Like all documentaries it cuts from interviews to snippets of the films, during these sections the film score raises to the point that i had trouble hearing the narration or interviewer- this coupled with the fact that there are no subtitles proved to be a little distracting.

All in all, if you are a fan of hammer you still NEED to buy it.

The menu on this is a cool guillotine chop start how cool is that?
But then after that nothing,just silence.
This run's 100m.
I rate this good.
Does have a cool trailer.
Interesting and informative interviews with directors,producers,and cast members.
Who better to narrate Hammer,but the pros,Chris Lee and Peter Cushing.
Sadly not too much present footage shown on these two,Peter's health was failing bad guess that's why.
I still recommend this Dvd.
