Icons of Adventure


During their three decades of production, Hammer’s films were distributed by a number of different companies, and the rights to the DVD releases of these films generally remain with these firms. The Columbia Hammer titles have become the most sought after and for years the company saw no interest in releasing any of their titles aside from Revenge of Frankenstein.

Fortunately that policy seems to have changed with the release of the Icons of Adventure boxset containing three all new to DVD Hammer adventure films, and a re-release of ‘Devil-Ship Pirates’ with a beautiful new transfer. In yet more good news Sony today announced that a horror set will follow later in the year including Two Faces of Dr. Jekyll, The Gorgon, Curse of the Mummy’s Tomb and Scream of Fear.

I’ve got an all new review of the three new films in the box, plus an updated review of Devil-Ship Pirates – take a read at: Icons of Adventure
