The Hammer Story (revised edition)
RRP £24.99BUY NOW
Fifty years ago, Hammer Films released their first ‘gothic’ horror movie, The Curse of Frankenstein. The now-legendary British company went on to make such classics as Dracula (and its many sequels), making international stars out of Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee, changing the face of horror cinema, and inspiring a generation of Hollywood filmmakers, including the likes of George Lucas, Martin Scorsese and Tim Burton.
Now, for the first time, Hammer have given their active backing to an authorised history of the company, and have provided unlimited access to their archives.
The Hammer Story provides a film-by-film dissection, dripping with rare promotional material and previously unpublished photographs.
The Hammer Story Marcus Hearn, Alan Barnes and Hammer Film Productions Limited as joint owners 1997, 2007.
