I was prepared to be disappointed but hopeful that Universal would do a good job with this set. While it isn't perfect, this collection of classic Hammer films (and some not so-classic ones as well)looks pretty good in this DVD transfer. Although "Brides of Dracula" and "Curse of the Werewolf" don't look as stunning as the "Horror of Dracula" (or "Revenge of Frankenstein")each appears in what appears to be the correct aspect ratio. Universal evidently used notes with the prints indicating the original theatrical aspect ratio (at least for the U.S.)much as Warner did with "The Mummy" and "Horror of Dracula". There aren't any extras to speak of but the image quality is solid. There's grain evident in most of these DVD transfers but all of that can't be attributed to the transfer itself as these were shot on stock that was grainy to begin with. Older DVD players (and some newer ones as well)may have a problem playing some of these discs. Evidently there are reports (again) that these Universal discs can cause some players to freeze and lock up the DVD players which is related to a manufacturing issue related only to dual layered discs. These discs would have looked terrific on single layered releases or on single sided dual layered releases. The reason these are being released like this is due to $$. Luckily, so far I haven't had a problem but I thought the same thing with some of the other Universal releases and found out otherwise much later.

"Brides of Dracula" has a misleading title. Dracula doesn't appear at all instead this film focuses on Van Helsing's (Peter Cushing) efforts to rid a village of a young vampire that has been inadvertantly released by a young woman. Although the script isn't quite as strong as "Horror of Dracula", the film has a number of memorable set pieces.

This is a good set of Hammer films but I am going to buy this set for one movie only. That film is Night Creatures, titled Captain Clegg in the UK. I am not surprised that many of the reviews here are not familiar with it. The film has not been shown on TV in over 2 decades. I spent years tracking down a bootleg copy. The story concerns pirates and smuggling. This film is not a remake of the Disney film "Dr. Syn". They were filming at the same time from the same source material. Disney sued Hammer and won. Hammer made changes in their film like changing the name of Dr. Syn to Dr. Blyss. The Scarecrow becomes a minor character in this film but even more eerie. Wait until you see the opening scene with the Marsh Phantoms. It will stay in your memory forever. It is important to point out that this is not a film dealing with the supernatural, but has the feeling of a horror film throughout. It has that old fashioned kind of spookiness and atmosphere that makes it an ideal film to watch on Halloween, if you would rather not watch the slasher type films. Many people, myself included, consider this Hammer's finest film. The rest of the films here are not too shabby in their own right. Hammer's version of "Phantom of the Opera" is here, and while I love Lon Chaney, this is my favorite version of the tale. Less horrible than other versions, which is strange for Hammer, the story includes the Phantom's origins which I found interesting. Lastly, I'll comment on "Curse of the Werewolf". You gotta see this as the only werewolf film featuring a blond wolfman, and if that dosen't pull you in, there is always Yvonne Romaine, who is also in Night Creatures. If I had not bought this set for Night Creatures, I would have bought it for Yvonne Romaine, who may have been one of the most beautiful women ever to appear in a motion picture.

Like many others I also have to report having problems with these discs. Curse of the Werewolf froze and pixellated a couple of times, but was otherwise okay. Evil of Frankenstein, however, was unwatchable because of all the playback problems. I think the disc was scratched by a flyer that was enclosed in the set. Not real smart to package something loose to rattle around along the playable surface of your discs. So I got in touch with Universal to send me a replacement and that one was defective as well. I really love these movies, but I will never again buy a double-sided DVD from Universal. I give these movies 5 stars, but 1 star for the discs themselves. Avoid these unless you're feeling very lucky.

**UPDATE**
I finally received my second replacement disc for this set from Universal, making it the third disc I've tried. Evil of Frankenstein still had severe playback problems on my Sony DVD player, but fortunately it played just fine (except for a momentary hiccup) on my older and much cheaper Pioneer player. Go figure. For the sake of future releases, please join me in boycotting Universal's double-sided DVDs.

These represent the Hammer films financed by Universal. They are all fine films, though of somewhat uneven quality: for instance, classic Hammers like "Brides of Dracula" and "Kiss of the Vampire" will hold more lasting interest than an only-okay psychological thriller like "Nightmare."

Since others have already spoken at length about the films, and since most people buying this set know what they're getting, I want to address the DVD mastering problems experienced so widely. Many have noted that, regardless of player, films in the set pixelate and freeze at random points. This is a problem with Universal's DVD-18 mastering process, which has flaws that have since caused Universal to return to their earlier, more reliable DVD-9 process.

In the meantime, both this set and the "Bela Lugosi Collection" have more than their share of bad discs. Contacting Universal itself will serve no purpose: even though they are aware of the problem, the pressings are out there and are not being remastered. You just have to be persistent and keep exchanging defective copies at retailers--even if you have to get a refund and start again with another dealer; the films are worth it. Eventually, you *will* get one without glitches. It took me three copies from two places. Importantly, you don't have to play through all the films in real time to know if you have a flawed copy: just scan through the films in the player at 4x-10x speed (no faster), and if there is a glitch, the player will freeze at the spot. That way, you don't have to watch through eight 90-minute movies on every copy you try out; it will take only 10% of the time to check the set, and you don't even have to be in the room. If you come back and the image is frozen, rather than having finished the film being scanned and having returned to the menu, then you have a bad one.

Have the flaws found with the Hammer Horror Series DVD set been fixed?
I, too, am interested in whether or not Universal has fixed the problems with the disks in this set. Also, I would like to know if "Brides of Dracula" is the "original," or an updated version. I am not a movie afficionado. This was the first vampire movie I ever saw. I was... Read More
