I must admit...Its hard choosing a favourite, As ALL the episodes stick in my mind.......But if I had to choose one, It would be "Visitor from the grave".
Mainly because it scared the shit out of me when it was first broadcast and also the fact that I have been to the location of the cottage in the episode.
"Guardian of the abyss" would be a close second tho.
And "Children of the full moon" would be a close third!

Same here, spooky ending that still sends a tingle down the spine. I agree with your second choice too.

Difficult to decide on an absolute favourite but decided to go for The Silent Scream.

If I picked a top three, next would be Guardian of the Abyss followed by Charlie Boy.

Mine has to be "Two faces of evil", it left me with unpleasant memories for many years. As a 10 year old I think the idea that you couldn't even trust your parents to be normal haunted me for decades afterwards! I've watched the episode recently, and although it looks quite dated now, all those deserted hospital corridors still make me feel uneasy...

It's a tough choice the ones that I remember when I was a kid was Children of the full moon and Two faces of evil scared the hell out of me.

Favourite Hammer House of Horror episodes

Post by jtellio »

I think that Guardian of the Abyss and Charlie Boy were two very good episodes, made in the Hammer House of Horror tradition.
Two Faces of Evil was a little too scary, whereas the first two I cited retained classic elements of country houses etc. Guardian reminded me of the 1968 film, The Devil Rides Out.

This is a very hard task for me, to pick just one. I really enjoy this series and like every episode.
But I do tend to watch 'Visitor From The Grave' the most, I know it is rather predictable but I like the story and the ending is a surprise. 'Children Of The Full Moon' is another favourite. 'Witching Time' as well, mainly for the lovely Prunella Gee ;).

Quite a lot to choose from,but my absolute favourite is CHILDREN OF THE FULL MOON,the legendary Diana Dors gives a superb performance in this episode.A masterclass in acting in how to be kind and sinister at the same time.
WITCHING TIME I adore also,followed by THE TWO FACES OF EVIL which scared me witless when I originally saw this when I was a child,not by the hitchiker or the possessed father and son but for some reason it was the hospital sister......

I've been watching all of them again recently and I can certainly say that 'Children Of The Full Moon' is my all time favourite. I really did think that Diana Dors was very good in that.
