Last April I wrote a detailed review (preview) of the Hammer Films Collection. I’m currently making my way through Volume II of the collection, both of which feature Hammer Studios films that Columbia Pictures distributed.
Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to complete the second volume in time to review it today, but I will do so in a couple of weeks. However, Christmas brought a bumper crop of films from the famous Hammer Studios, including a collection of four Dracula films distributed by Warner Brothers and an eight-film compilation of Universal Studios horror flicks.
I’ll be reviewing the first four films on the Universal Studios-distributed collection, The Hammer Horror Series, and reviewing the second four next Saturday. At the time of writing, the collection is only $17.21 on Amazon for the DVD ($34.99 for the Blu-Ray edition); at that price, I’d definitely recommend picking it up to enjoy these flicks yourself.
The collection includes eight films in total: Brides of Dracula, The Curse of the Werewolf, The Phantom of the Opera, Paranoiac, The Kiss of the Vampire, Nightmare, Night Creatures, and The Evil of Frankenstein. Today I’ll be reviewing Brides of Dracula, The Curse of the Werewolf, The Phantom of the Opera, and Paranoiac.
