    I love this new Hammer Horror 8 film box set with all films making their first appearance on Blu Ray.The box set includes Brides of Dracula, The Curse of the Werewolf, Phantom of the Opera, Paranoiac, Kiss of the Vampire, Nightmare, Night Creatures, and The Evil of Frankenstein. Definite improvements over the DVD set from a few years ago.PHANTOM, BRIDES, CURSE, and NIGHT CREATURES are all presented at the aspect ratio of 2.0:1. The problem is, none of them were composed for that aspect ratio and are excessively cropped as a result. Not sure how Universal let it be released this way but nonetheless a worthwhile set.

    Great Films. Poor Presentations.

    This collection includes some excellent Hammer films, most notably The Brides of Dracula. Unfortunately, most of them are presented cropped to 2.0:1, which is not correct. In some cases, they are cropped and zoomed with window-boxed titles. All are old transfers made for DVD. Very poor blu-ray presentations. Hopefully one day Universal will treat their Hammer films with similar care on blu-ray to their own classic Universal Horror film series.

    Universal upgrades the original DVD collection with this HD set. However, it is a missed opportunity as the set contains no extras. While almost each film in this collection has received a special edition with extras overseas, you get 8 movies in this set for the price of importing a single title. While the aspect ratios are off for some of the titles, the picture has not looked as sharp. If found for $40 or under, it is worth the price.

    I picked up this set because my DVD version had issues. Although the films look and sound great, there are moments when the aspect ratio feels off. Still a recommend for classic Hammer fans

    I had no idea Hammer had any of their movies out on Blu-ray format. I was a more than pleased with this collection. Grab the popcorn, turn out the lights and enjoy a hammer marathon. A+++
