    Christopher Lee as Dracula. Peter Cushing as Dr. Frankenstein. Oliver Reed as the Werewolf. Hammer Films had all three along with outstanding directors and cinematographers. The little studio managed to produce some of the best horror films of the second half of the twentieth century, becoming a worthy successor to the Universal Pictures' monsters. The low-budget movies that Hammer produced were usually in blazing colour, although they made some terrific B&W flicks, too. Like, The Quartermass Christopher Lee as Dracula.

The low-budget movies that Hammer produced were usually in blazing colour, although they made some terrific B&W flicks, too. Like, The Quartermass Experiment, in which a lone surviving astronaut returns to earth with...something. And The Damned, where radioactively-bred children are accidentally discovered by Oliver Reed's gang...all to the sounds of "Black Leather, Black Leather, rock, rock, rock". Even the Hammer posters were unique. This book is not very long, but it makes a decent introduction to the Hammer collection. Readers can then progress to Horrors Of Hammer and Greasepaint and Gore. Book Season = Autumn (Dracula keeps rising from his grave)

    ¿Un libro acerca de la historia de la Hammer en los setentas, cuando la productora aún estaba en pleno auge? ¡Claro! ¿Por qué no? Se trata de un pequeño compendio con entrevistas con Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, Terence Fischer, etcétera. Además tiene un compendio de las películas que la productora había editado hasta entonces. ¡Es toda una pieza histórica! El testamento de una de las productoras de cine de horror más entrañables de la historia. No tiene desperdicio, aunque a estas altura ya ha ¿Un libro acerca de la historia de la Hammer en los setentas, cuando la productora aún estaba en pleno auge? ¡Claro! ¿Por qué no?

No tiene desperdicio, aunque a estas altura ya hace falta hablar (y de hecho ya hay libros que lo hacen) del impacto cultural de la productora. ¡La casa del horror cuyos filmes son gemas para los amantes del horror más clásico!

    This is one of the best nostalgia books about movies that I have ever read. I have been a huge fan of the Hammer Films Company. For me, this studio epitomized the gothic horror film. While, I am a passionate fan of the studio, I did not like all of the films produced by this company. I was turned off by the latter efforts which bordered on soft porn but was a big fan of the studio from the early 1950s to the mid-1960s. Overall, Hammer Films' fans will devour this book. It also also a good refere This is one of the best nostalgia books about movies that I have ever read. I have been a huge fan of the Hammer Films Company.

It also also a good reference section and tons of glorious pictures.

    Now I want to go back over my Hammer collection and re-watch. Oh for having the time to do that (I wish). This is a very light history of Hammer. Nothing like what Marcus Hearn produces but still worth a read for us Hammer obsessives. Set into different chapters on Frankenstein, Dracula, thrillers etc, a couple of interviews and an interesting last chapter on non-Hammer films which may have either been influenced by Hammer or an extension. An OK book to add to my Hammer collection.
