Editorial Reviews

Each generation creates tales of horror… stories that seep through the very heart of our collective fears. The legendary Hammer Studios is recognized as the high watermark of the gothic macabre, creating some of the most chilling and recognizable horror films of all time. In 1980, Hammer took over the old Hampden Manor House in the heartland of England and produced a series of thirteen horror stories to air on British television. With a host of Hammer regulars, including Peter Cushing (Twins of Evil, Star Wars) and Denholm Elliott (Raiders of the Lost Ark), along with early appearances by actors like Pierce Brosnan (GoldenEye), each episode provides a completely new and individual tale of terror and suspense. Synapse Films is proud to present the complete series of HAMMER HOUSE OF HORROR in its original airdate order, with all-new introductions and supplemental features. This five disc Collector's Edition presents each episode with all nudity and violence intact!

I love the old Hammer films and so ordered this set sight unseen. I was not disappointed! There are some episodes that are ho-hum, but there are others that pretty much freaked me out - and I'm a real fan of horror! (Check out "The Two Faces of Evil" - OMG!! CAH-REEEEEEPY!) Each episode is like an hour-long mini-movie; the characters are well-developed and the plot moves along at a good rate - not rushed, but they do build up the suspense quite nicely. Loved seeing some familiar faces, too: Peter Cushing, Denholm Elliot, Pierce Brosnan, and others. I have watched each episode three times now and am still not tired of them!

4.0 out of 5 stars Yes! have been waiting for this for a long time July 22, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A couple years ago, if I'm not mistaken A&E released Hammer House of Horror on DVD. For the longest time it has been out of print, and the cheapest price used is $32, and new $70. I will not pay that much. But thankfully Synapse company, who has recently been releasing Hammer on Blu-Ray, just a few though, has decided to re-release this set. I know I will be buying this wonderful 80's Hammer tv show. Hopefully so will a lot of people so it stays in print. Pre-order now, and be filled with awesome Hammer Horror.

Edit: Also the picture for this set and sound quality is great. The reason I give the set 4 stars and not 5 is because, unfortunately there aren't any commentaries or behind the scenes looks at what Hammer House of Horror was like. Before every episode there are little intros talking about each episodes cast and a little trivia that any DIE HARD HAMMER FAN would love, but this is about as far as the special features go. Episodes are wonderful especially "Children of the Full Moon" which is a nice werewolf adaption considering that Hammer only made one werewolf movie in "Curse of the Werewolf" which is also one of my favorite Hammer movies. Overall wonderful set and very enjoyable for any Hammer Fan or and regular horror fan.

NOTE: If you were lucky enough to acquire an A&E DVD copy of Hammer House of Horror, the only reason for you to acquire this set as well would be the updated picture quality and sound quality and if your into a little bit of back story before every episode, the pre episode intros. Other than that if your A&E version still works, than you should be in good shape. Hope this answered everyone's questions. Thanks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice mastering on Hammer TV anthology January 11, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
One of the last gasps from Hammer before the studio closed its doors in the 80's (only to reopen under new management within the last decade), this single season TV series ran back in 1980 and, with a Night Gallery - The Complete First Season vibe, allowed Hammer to close out their history with a solid project. This reissue from Synapse films is nice featuring the UK versions of the shows without any PAL issues (meaning it doesn't sound like anyone is sucking helium when they speak).

There is some minor distortion on the audio for "Visitor from the Grave" during a brief sequence but, aside from that, the audio is clear and presented in its original mono.

Featuring a variety of guest stars including Brian Cox ("Manhunter", "The Bourne Supermacy"), Peter Cushing ("Curse of Frankenstein", "Star Wars"), Denholm Elliot ("Raiders of the Lost Ark"), Jon Finch ("Frenzy"), Katherine Leight Scott ("Dark Shadows"), Siân Phillips ("I, Claudius") and a small role featuring Pierce Brosnan (James Bond of course and "Remington Steele")among others, the series featured some top notch horror directors that had worked for Hammer before (Peter Sasdy,Don Sharp, Tom Clegg).

Among the outstanding episodes are "The House That Bled Blood", "Visitor from the Grave", "The Two Faces of Evil", "The Silent Scream" (a surprisingly powerful episode but you should stick with it to the end) and "The Mark of Satan". There are, of course, a couple of cringe worthy episodes as well but, on the whole, the series is remarkably good and consistent. If nothing else, the series is worthwhile for the strong performances from the cast.

There are a handful of duds but, on the whole, the writing and direction is pretty good.

If you're a fan of this type of shtick and slightly nostalgic for the 60's and 70's vibe to the horror series, then you will enjoy these stories. If you are expecting something more modern with tight filming, special effects, story lines, etc. then I wouldn't recommend this. This is more in line with the ghoulish stories from the Hammer films and the Night Gallery series.

Saw these back some time ago. ALL pretty darned good. I remembered them the minute each one came on. I cannot remember Where I saw these, but they all were that memorable in my mind after all these years. GOOD purchase. No hiccups, good sound/color. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's Hammer time! November 19, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What a great release. Has been on my wish list for several years - though wish this was in blu-ray but the picture and overall quality of this dvd set is spectacular. Great creepy stories with that Hammer horror atmosphere mixed with some sex, blood and gore you can't ask for more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hammer House Of Horror - The Complete Series Review January 8, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This British TV series were made in 1980; each episode is independent from the others and deals with crime and horror stories. Acting and dialog are very good. The 1.33:1 picture is sharp and quite good.
