a clip show series that was worth it
15 October 2005 | by movieman_kevSee all my reviews

Oliver Reed narrated this 13 episode clip show series that showcased the many various movies that Hammer produced. A great primer for those unfamiliar with the amazing, but now sadly defunct company. Even total Hammer converts will still find joy in watching clips from movies that you love. The clip shows were grouped by theme and every single episode was a joy to watch. There's been talks of resurrecting Hammer Studios for decades now, but it never seems to happen sadly. So this was a good way to fondly remember said films before I had been able to find them all. DVD later would change that, i'm grateful for that.

My Grade: B
