Documentary Mini-Series.
24 November 2013 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Actor(and occasional star) Oliver Reed narrates this look at the films of Hammer studios, the legendary British film company that is mostly known for its horror pictures(like the Frankenstein & Dracula series) but produced all kinds of pictures, from science fiction, suspense thrillers, costume dramas, and even war and comedies. Disappointing look at the studio is quite superficial, loaded with clips and terse narration. Not much point really, except self-promotion, though this isn't bad, using many good clips at least. Is only available on various DVDs(mostly double-features) about 11-13 episodes in all from Anchor Bay studios. Worth watching once, but that's all.
