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.
was filmed in 1997 by Heidelberg films written, produced & Directed by Ted newsom
and then was TV broadcast sometime in the late 90's i assume
this Doco only goes for about 99mins if that but still very informative & Detailed
the Documentary starts from the beginnings of Hammer films from the early 50's with Anthony carreras
and then to Hammer's first feature film which i think was the Quatermass experiment a sci-fi movie filmed in the mid 50's
and then came the Horror films in the late 50's with peter cushing & Christopher lee
CURSE OF FRANKENSTIEN, HORROR OF DRACULA, THE MUMMY all filmed about 1957-59
and so many films after that during the 60's that starred both peter cushing & christopher Lee
aswell as other Hammer film actors/actresses
until Hammer's last film in 1975 which was To the Devil a Daughter
when Michael carreras left Hammer to persue other carrer options
but it didn't fully end there
the executive producer that took over Hammer also produced a TV series in the late 70's early 80's
but after the series ended that was it, Hammer studios had ended
which is tragic some other producer could've taken over the company
and made more hammer films for another 8 years maybe, but who knows.Read more ›
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.
