Hammer House of Mystery & Suspense

Show Summary

Welcome to the Hammer House of Mystery & Suspense guide at TV.com. This was Hammer Studios' fifth attempt at a TV series, and it is over-shadowed by the better-known Hammer House of Horror. In the US, it was also called Fox Mystery Theater. While Hammer House of Horror was all horror, this show was more of a mixed bag. It had gothic horrors (such as 'And the Wall Came Tumbling Down' and 'In Possession'), but also science fiction ('Child's Play'), spy thrillers ('Czech Mate') and other genres. As Hammer House of Mystery & Suspense was co-produced with 20th Century Fox, it needed to use American leads in every episode. The Hammer name provided top directors like Val Guest, John Hough, Peter Sasdy and Alan Cooke. The show was produced by Roy Skeggs and Brian Lawrence, who took over the operations at Hammer Studios in 1979. All episodes are now available on DVD.

    for the most times. This is the sequel to "Hammer House Of Horror" (80). I actually likes HHOH a bit better than this series. Both tv-series can be bought on dvd from Amazon.Uk. I saw this tv-series for the first time 2-3 years ago. A few days ago, i began seeing the episodes for the second time. I think this series has generally good acting, suspense, twists and story. My favourite episodes are: Last Video and Testament, Czech Mate, The Corvini Inheritance and The Sweet Scent of Death. I think some episodes had potential to be great, but turned out to be only okay. Like these: Mark of the Devil, In Possession, Paint Me a Murder and Black Carrion. And i think these was just poor. A Distant Scream, The Late Nancy Irving, and Tennis Court. I have not yet seen epsiodes And the Wall Came Tumbling Down and Child`s Play. I don`t remember if i liked them either.moreless
