Hammer House of Mystery and Suspense is a short-lived (one season) anthology television series produced in Britain in 1984/85 by Hammer Studios.

Unlike 1980's Hammer House of Horror, it was first aired in the UK by ITV in 1984, though was not simulcast and was shown in different timeslots (and a different running order) throughout the various ITV regions.
1London region transmission date unknown, but screened on ITV's Television South West on 17 December 1984.
The series was released as a 6-DVD set in the UK in 2006, however this is now deleted. In Germany a 4-DVD set has been released in March 2018 with its german tv-title "Vorsicht, Hochspannung!".
