For more than two decades, the name of Hammer was synonymous with horror, winning a legendary place in the history of British films. Hammer Horror movies became world famous - a total of 150 blood-curdling thrillers.

Five years after they ceased cinematic production, Hammer Horror movies were resurrected and exclusively made for television. The TV series took on a more contemporary feel and episodes were based in the present day. The stories were wide ranging - thrills and chills, mystery and intrigue, suspense and the supernatural. Everything from sheer spine-tingling horror to sinister drama, the occult and the simply eerie.

The series is littered with household names and movies stars including the great Peter Cushing, Diana Dors, Pierce Brosnan and Denholm Elliot to name a few. Many of the programmes were filmed at Hammer headquarters, Hampden House in Buckinghamshire, an old manor house which served as a perfect backdrop for much of the series. The nearby town of Great Missenden was also used extensively for location shoots.

This box set runs for 660 mins and features all 13 spine tingling episodes from the original Hammer House of Horror TV series:
