Product Details


Product Description

A unique collection of three classic horror films from the renowned HAMMER film studio: Dracula: Prince of Darkness (1966) Christopher Lee reprises his role as Count Dracula in this 1966 sequel to the original Horror of Dracula. Then Legend of Seven Golden Vampires (1979) Professor Van Helsing and Dracula meet again in this kung fu horror spectacular set in the village of Ping Kuei. After learning about the Seven Golden Vampires of the village, Hsi Ching, Vanessa Beren and Mai Kwei offer to guide Van Helsing and his son to Ping Kuei to free it from the curse of Count Dracula. Throughout their journey, the party encounters several unwanted attackers until they arrive at the golden vampires\' derelict temple, inhabited by Count Dracula. It is here, in this eerie place, where Van Helsing and the Count begin a battle-to-the-death where good and evil collide, and only one man is left standing. Frankenstein Created Woman (1967) A beautiful woman with the soul of the devil! In a 19th century Balkan village, Baron Frankenstein (Peter Cushing) and Dr. Hertz (Thorley Walters) are embarking upon an experiment to capture the souls of the dead and impose them into other bodies. When their assistant, Hans (Robert Morris), is unjustly accused of murdering his girlfriend Christina's father and put to death, the two men claim his body and trap his soul in their laboratory. Meanwhile, Christina (Susan Denberg) is consumed with grief over the death of her beloved Hans and commits suicide. Frankenstein and Dr. Hertz are able to revive Christina and tranfer Hans' soul into her body which results in a vision of beauty. Their experiment appears successful until Frankenstein discovers that Christina's actions are being driven by the spirit of Hans and his passion for revenge.

3.0 out of 5 stars Total is better than the parts June 20 2013
By Yves-Michel TOP 500 REVIEWER

Three lesser seen outtings from Hammer. A great value..... but not really a great deal. The lack of any extras is hurting the set. The 3 movies are quite different in quality and taste.

Prince of darlness : the legand states that Christopher lee was such an expensive commodity that they reduced his screen time to save money. He barely shows his fangs for 15 minutes during the film. Luckily, it gives the rest of the actors time to show their talent. A good classic Dracula story well delivered. As Victorian as the queen.. get a tea, relax and watch.

Frankenstein created Woman : Critics will say that it is the best one on the franchise. It is fabulous. it is not scary and more Sci-fi than horror. Peter Cushing is at ease in this misunderstood scientist role. The rest of the cast (with the exception of the pretty lady monster and Frankenstein's helper) is pale in comparison to main actor. A great story that flows lie a river in northern England. No gore or scary stuff on this one, it is almost theatrical.

7 golden vampires : In the later part of the early 70s, Monster movies were on life support, nudie cuties were on their way out, but Bruce Lee induced Kung Fu movies were IN. So let's do Vampire movie in Asia with some clothes-ripping scenes Chinese style. It is one of the worst glicks done by Hammer. Peter Cushing is almost ridicule and his great talent cannot save this disaster. The Kung Fu fighting scenes are endlsss. It actually feels more like a Dungeon and Dragons bad scenario. you have to see it once... I guess.

Could have ben a good set, but the absence of extras and the so-so packaging will not allow me to rate it higher than 3 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars 3 Hammer Horror Films For Under $10!!! March 11 2013
By Joseph Brando - Published on Amazon.com
Anyone who gives this set of Hammer Horror movies a low-grade is either not a fan or is just being petty. Millenium Entertainment is offering up 3 formerly out-of-print classics that were selling for well over $20 each for a used copy - all 3 for under 10 bucks!! Two sure-fire classics (Dracula Prince Of Darkness & Frankenstein Created Woman) are paired with one weird latter day Hammer entry (Seven Golden Vampires - more of a Kung Fu Movie with a Vampire backplot). This is supposedly just the tip of the iceberg as Millenium plans to release many more Hammer titles in new remastered prints on DVD & Bluray!

3.0 out of 5 stars A 3-shot of Hammer Classics from Millenium, hopefully some blu-rays to follow April 3 2013
By A. Genard - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
In early March 2013 Millenium Entertainment announced a distribution deal of Exclusive Media's library of Hammer Films - including special edition blu-rays as part of a multi-tiered marketing approach. While the UK have been getting Hammer blu-rays on a steady basis (albeit generally medicore to poor releases) here in America the pickings have been pretty slim. It's barely a month later and Millenium has already released a quickie barebones 3-film DVD set "at an affordable price to encourage the general public to join the Hammer fanbase" according to their press release. Sales figures of this DVD set are likely to be a gauge for future blu-rays. After considering the pre-order of a measly 8 bucks, the weight it may have on future releases, and the fact I still don't own Dracula: Prince of Darkness then this DVD set was a no-brainer. For the sake of this review I'll be referring to the LONG out print Anchor Bay DVDs, which haven't been distributed in over a decade and now command some pretty outrageous prices.

Unfortunately, being an apparent rushjob, this first release from Millenium has some drawbacks. The first thing that strikes me is the case insert - it's so plain and unattractive, clearly a 15 minute Photoshop job. Granted, this bears nothing on disc content but it helps illustrate the expedited manner this set was created. The arrangement is a bit awkward in that Dracula: POD has it's own single-sided disc and the other 2 films are on a double-sided "flipper" disc. There are no extras, not even trailers, so that is something the Anchor Bay DVDs have over this. All 3 films do feature English SDH subtitles though.

DRACULA: PRINCE OF DARKNESS - The transfer on this film is quite solid with natural skin tones, a stable image, and minimal imperfections. The audio is very consistent and adequate. I do not own the Anchor Bay version to compare. As far as the film itself goes, I think this one is a little overrated. It's still a good movie but there are other Hammer Dracula installments that I simply enjoy more (namely the 2 that followed it: Dracula Has Risen From the Grave and Taste the Blood of Dracula).

LEGEND OF THE 7 GOLDEN VAMPIRES - By far, the worst of the 3 transfers in the set. Immediately upon viewing it is obvious the film speed is off, which results in unnaturally fast motion. The runtime here is only 85 min. instead of the 89 min. length on the Anchor Bay DVD. The increased film speed acccounts for the difference and it doesn't appear as if anything is cut. However this one is in Anamorphic Widescreen and the AB release is letterboxed, which isn't' very friendly with most widescreen TVs. Surprisingly this soundtrack is much clearer and more robust than AB's which is muffled lo-fi by comparison. Also, Millenium's color palette seems more natural than the Anchor Bay transfer. Unfortunately none of these improvements overcome the terribly distracting off-kilter film speed that renders the movie almost unwatchable. Anchor Bay wins hands down on this one, and their DVD includes the American cut of the film as well (The Seven Brothers Meet Dracula). I hope they straighten out the speed issue for any further release of this interesting east-meets-west flick.

FRANKENSTEIN CREATED WOMAN - Another clean solid transfer with more natural color and even a little sharper than it's AB counterpart, although the print is a little darker overall. Audio once again is pretty tight with little to no hiss, pops, or crackles. This movie is one of the best in the Frankenstein series and definitely one of the more inventive ones. It's nice to see it in great condition here. Between the good technical aspects and artistic quality FCW is the most enjoyable in this set to watch.

All in all, this isn't a bad set. But having zero extras, minimal effort, and 7 Golden Vampires being a wash (which really needed an improved release) is enough to take off 2 stars. If you already have the Anchor Bay DVDs, then this set won't do much for you. But if you're looking for any of these films the pricetag alone makes it worthwhile. Hopefully Millenium will get around to releasing blu-rays sooner rather than later.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice for the Price April 3 2013
By Gary A. Smith - Published on Amazon.com

Here is the lowdown on the three movie Hammer set. I watched Dracula Prince of Darkness and it is the best I have ever seen the movie look. Gorgeous color and sharp picture. I am very impressed by this transfer. I spot checked the other two films and Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires appears to be taken from the same source that the Warner UK DVD is taken from, which is quite good. Frankenstein Created Woman opens with the Fox logo and has a Color by DeLuxe credit. The UK DVD of this title has far more vibrant color than this one does but at least this is anamorphic and somewhat sharper looking than the old Anchor Bay disc. Rating the quality of the transfers I would give Dracula Prince of Darkness five stars, Legend of the Seven Golden Vampires four stars, and Frankenstein Created Woman three stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars BEWARE OF TIME COMPRESSION April 25 2013
By Mark Mcgee - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Considering the low price of this Milenium release, you may not mind that "The 7 Golden Vampires" is time compressed. I couldn't watch it. Both "Dracula, Prince of Darkness" and "Frankenstein Created Woman" have crisper images than their previous releases but the color is pale on the latter title. But if Dracula is the one you want, this is the best copy to date.
