This is a decent starter boxset, but realistically three of the movies are just average.

And as Dave said, I have all these already too. It's a good sign though.

Exclamation Hammer Fans Just HAVE To Buy This!

IT'S OUT:The Dracula Hammer Warner Bros. Collection!


Now I know that it's strange to basically have in
one collection Dracula's 1, 3, 4, and 6 (where's
Parts 2, 5, and 7?), but what a bargain! This
(along with other "4 Film Favorites" sets like
the Stallone collection [which I bought] and
Lethal Weapon's 1 thru 4) is currently this week
selling for only $10.96 at WalMart! Huge bargain!

Here's the deal on those three I mentioned:
Each set is a two-disc/double sided set in
a single keepcase with leaf. If the movie originally
came out as a dual layer, it's dual layer here too.
In fact, all these are anamorphic widescreen
(others like the Kids collections aren't) and
are exactly the same presentation as they were
originally released by Warner Bros minus separate
boxes and maybe a FULLFRAME version on the flip
(they just pressed the Widescreen on these).

What a bargain. These three I mentioned are the
best ones, the others are blah really, but that's
one hell of a deal for 4 Hammer Dracula titles
at the same time.

Would love to hear from some hardcore Hammer fans
on this one. Did Warner do a good job on these originally?

I hope this is a trend. There are still tons of unreleased Hammer pictures.

I realize they aren't all to the caliber of Horror of Dracula, but to geeks like myself they'd be excellent additions to my collection.

Sadly when I bought these four separately, they probably cost me over fifty bucks. Tis a good deal.

I would never have even imagined you could kill someone with a wagon wheel.

I have all of these. Parts 2, 5 and 7 are owned by Anchor Bay which I own those as well. The AB releases are OOP and quite pricey.....espicially Prince of Darkness. The Warner releases sport a good transfer but if these are the full DVD releases, don't expect much as they are pretty bare. Like caustic stated, these cost me over $50 as well individually. A good price for some great Hammer films.

Oh my! I don't want to rub it in, but you two
must be kicking yourselves to spend so much
money on these separately, just to have Warner
re-release them like this for only $10 bucks.

However, it could mean that the single versions
may now go OOP, and then yours could become
rare. And did the originals have FULLFRAMEs on the flip or
just disc art? Either isn't availible here. But man....$50!

You two might want to pick this up for
such a low price anyway....I dunno.

I've never seen a Hammer release with any extra features at all - they all are barebones from my experience, so you aren't missing out. But, I won't kick myself if they come out with further sets like this.

Besides, I've had these movies for years and derived loads of enjoyment - I don't regret buying them for slightly more. I'm glad I didn't have to wait until now to see them. Even if I knew this set was going to come out, I probably would have still purchased them back then.

There was a Hammer box set released a couple years ago that has the first two Draculas, the first two Frankensteins, plus the Mummy and maybe one more. That's one I've always meant to pick up.

It's an expensive set. It's almost worth trying to pick up individually.

Hammer Horror Collection Amazon

That one is still floating around but going up in price. The Anchor Bay releases did have some decent extras. For instance, Scars of Dracula has audio commentary with Christopher Lee and Roy Ward Baker moderated by Hammer Films Historian Marcus Hearn. U.K. Trailer, U.S. combo trailer, Poster and still gallery and talent bios. It also came with the supplemental disc The Many Faces of Christopher Lee. Narrated by the man himself, its an exceptional look into his career.
