1960s classic Gothic anthology Series
24 September 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I vividly remember this series from when i was a child and it made a very strong impression on me. A very atmospheric Gothic feel to most of the productions. Fortunately in August this year a DVD release of the remaining shows made by ABC(2) and Thames(6)was released and after viewing again i can thoroughly recommend the series, particularly Sweeney Todd with Freddie Jones giving a great over the top performance and The curse of the mummy which stand up very well to viewing in 2009. They also show off the acting talents of great Brit actors Denholm Elliot, Ian Holm and Patrick Mower. A pity that not more shows exist(at least officially - we can hope). Overall a well produced and acted show, possibly a little slow in places for modern audiences, but if you are a fan of classic Hammer horror you will be rewarded. 1960's U.K. TV at its best
