The documentary is interesting, of course, but it seems to be sort of a budget production, with archival material that ranges from acceptable to, well,... scans from cheap horror magazines. More, a lot of it appears to have been transferred from videotape. Considering that the Hammer movies themselves are so lush, it seems a pity that the definitive Hammer documentary should be so cheap-jack. And I would have liked to hear about Amicus and the other Hammer offshoots, but I can see how that would be a problem to arrange. As with many British documentaries, it seems awfully formal at times. I don't want to make it sound all that bad, though. There are interesting interviews (many that I'd never seen before), behind-the-scenes home-movies, production footage and other surprises. In all, it's well worth the price if you are a fan of Hammer, or Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee, who happen to be the hosts of the documentary!.
