    Defintiely going to be worth it. I remember the six movie Hammer set from a few years ago and some of the single releases, but this will be an easy pickup for me.

    I'd pay that for a dvd release of the Gorgon alone, great gothic tale, starts off morose and gets worse. Great atmosphere and mood. This is a nice little collection, especially since the Hammer Box never got a US release. Although having a multiregion DVD player makes that a non-issue.

    In Canada it may be steep, but in the U.S. $16.99 is pretty damn good for four Hammer flicks that have been remastered.

    Sony needs to get with the program and put some effort into these releases. With no special features, the $30+ (Canadian) price tag is pretty steep.
