Hammer Horror The Early Classics

£24.99

Product description

Hammer Horror The Early Classics is described as four digitally remastered classics from the Hammer house of horror, and consists of four DVDs in separate poly-boxes within one card box.

The Quatermass Xperiment (1955), made by Hammer, is the first film based on the BBC's successful television series, The Quatermas Experiment. The screenplay is by Val Guest (who also directed) and Richard Landau (based on the original story by Nigel Kneale). The film stars stars Brian Donlevy as Professor Bernard Quatermass, Jack Warner and Richard Wordsworth. Special features include: an audio commentary by, and an interview with, Val Guest; a trailer; and a 24-page illustrated booklet.

Quatermass 2 (1957) is a sequel to Hammer's earlier film and is based on the BBC Television serial Quatermass II written by Nigel Kneale. It was written by Nigel Kneale and Val Guest (who again directed) and stars Brian Donlevy reprising his role, John Longden and Sidney James. Special features include: an audio commentary by Nigel Neale and Val Guest; an interview with Val Guest; a trailer; and a 24-page illustrated booklet.

X the Unknown (1956) was originally intended by Hammer to be a sequel to the previous year's successful The Quatermass Xperiment, but writer Nigel Kneale refused permission for the character of Bernard Quatermass to be used. The film was directed by Leslie Norman and written by
Jimmy Sangster. It stars Dean Jagger and Edward Chapman. Special features include: an audio commentary and filmed interview with Jimmy Sangster; a trailer; The World of Hammer: Sci-Fi episode of the 1990s TV series; and a 24-page illustrated booklet.

Four Sided Triangle (1952) A British science-fiction film directed by Terence Fisher, adapted from the novel by William F. Temple. It stars Stephen Murray, Barbara Payton and James Hayter. The film deals with the moral and scientific themes that later reoccurred in the same director's The Curse of Frankenstein, making Hammer's reputation for a series of successful gothic horror productions. Special features include: The Right Person (1955), a colour thriller; photo galleries featuring early images; and a 24-page illustrated booklet of 'viewing notes' to accompany The four Sided Triangle.

The cardboard box has a crease which runs the length of the bottom. The spine has a 15mm tear in the top-left corner and a 10mm bump/crease on the bottom-left corner. Overall, it has scratches and shelf wear. The Quatermass Xperiment and Four Sided Triangle poly-boxes have been opened, but along with the DVD and booklet, are in excellent condition. The remaining two film cases are sealed in cellophane.
