The Hammer Story, Paperback
5 out of 5 (1 rating)


A gloriously bloodthirsty celebration of Hammer Films, unearthed to coincide with the fortieth Anniversary of Hammer's first horror film, The Curse of Frankenstein.

At last, a sharp, cutting, film-by-film dissection of the Hammer phenomenon, dripping with rare promotional material, previously unpublished photographs and behind-the-scenes production minutiae.

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 and the wealth of new material within.

Now, for the first time, the crypt doors have been thrown wide open...

Review by

You don't need to be a Hammer Films fan to enjoy this tasty volume. Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, and Oliver Reed are here in their full gory glory. The authors do an exceptional job on making the book as colorful as the Hammer flicks were, with lots of color photographs and lobby cards. Each film has a full section with the plot synopsis and behind-the-scenes gossip. For the cinema fan, this should be a must-have book for the library.<br/><br/><br/>Book Season = Autumn (when the air is chill)
