Description by OLDIES.com:
Each generation creates tales of horror stories that seep through the very heart of our collective fears. The legendary Hammer Studios is recognized as the high watermark of the gothic macabre, creating some of the most chilling and recognizable horror films of all time. In 1980, Hammer took over the old Hampden Manor House in the heartland of England and produced a series of thirteen horror stories to air on British television. With a host of Hammer regulars, including Peter Cushing (Twins of Evil, Star Wars) and Denholm Elliott (Raiders of the Lost Ark), along with early appearances by actors like Pierce Brosnan (GoldenEye), each episode provides a completely new and individual tale of terror and suspense. Synapse Films is proud to present the complete series of HAMMER HOUSE OF HORROR in its original airdate order, with all-new introductions and supplemental features. This five disc Collector's Edition presents each episode with all nudity and violence intact!
England's Hammer Studios are revered by legions of horror fans as one of the most important movie studios in the history of the film genre. Generally recognized as spinning out some of the best examples of the so-called "gothic macabre," Hammer's film catalog includes timeless classics like CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN and CURSE OF THE WEREWOLF. In 1980, the studio ventured into the world of television, making 13 bone chilling episodes of a series that quickly became a cult hit. This special collection features all 13 of these episodes, uncut and digitally remastered.
