The Hammer Collection Blu-ray
Directed by Terence Fisher
Collection of four classic British horror films. In 'The Brides of Dracula' (1960), a young teacher on her way to a position in Transylvania inadvertently unleashes the horrors of the undead after helping a young man escape the shackles his mother has put on him.
When a number of bodies are then discovered nearby with puncture marks on their necks, Dr Van Helsing (Peter Cushing) is called in to try and protect the people of the local village.
In 'Curse of the Werewolf' (1961), Leon (Oliver Reed), who was born on Christmas Day as the result of a horrific rape, finds himself condemned to a tormented life as a werewolf.
After terrorising the town where he works, Leon soon begins to realise that his terrifying transformation can only be stopped by the unquestioning love of a good woman or a silver bullet.
In 'Captain Clegg' (1962), Captain Collier (Patrick Allen) and his crew are sent to the English coastal town of Dymchurch to investigate smuggling activities.
After being made aware of the ghosts that supposedly haunt the area at night by local vicar Reverend Blyss (Cushing), Collier soon begins to suspect that the vicar may be attempting to protect a much bigger secret.
Finally, in 'Kiss of the Vampire' (1963), after the honeymoon of Gerald Harcourt (Edward De Souza) and his new wife Marianne (Jennifer Daniel) is interrupted by a car breakdown, they reconcile themselves to staying a couple of days in a remote village.
The locals seem friendly enough and the wealthy Dr. Ravna (Noel Willman) even invites the couple for dinner at his chateau.
However, once trapped in Ravna's house the newlyweds swiftly find themselves regretting the invitation as they become the subject of increasingly bizarre and threatening behaviour.
