4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Hammer horror films unleashed! June 17, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars G**DAMN UNIVERSAL!!!! January 31, 2006
Format:DVD
Yep folks, I have to concur with other reviewers who have shouted BUYER BEWARE - just as Paranoiac gets interesting, the image freezes and completely locks up and all you can do is to make a note of the exact time on the DVD clock, then start the movie again using chapter stops to go PAST the lock-up, then reverse back to about 50 secs after the freeze occured ... a wonderful carry-on for a suspense thriller, huh ? And ditto playing it on the computer - ever tried to eject a disc when your computer is frozen up ? The great tragedy is that these are wonderful, wonderful movies but the DVD quality is obviously a crap shoot (in fact some of those earlier reviews telling us how brilliant the disc quality is are highly suspect ... but Universal would never stoop so low as to stuff the ballot now would they?) To those who have clean copies - well lucky you.

What I will say though is that no emails I have sent to Universal ("Contact Us" ! says their website) have been acknowledged, still less has anyone at Universal Customer Services (hah) offered refund or replacement or EXPLANATION AND APOLOGY. Service ? Heaven forfend ! We want your MONEY !

All the other reviewers who have complained so plaintively and angrily have my full support - now tell me, apart from Amazon's willingness to replace defective discs, has ANYONE had any satisfactory contact with Universal ? And indeed has Amazon complained to Universal on our behalf ?

5.0 out of 5 stars I am buying this DVD set for Night Creatures August 28, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.
