Fifty years ago, Hammer Films released their very first horror movie, The Quatermass Xperiment. The now-legendary British company went on to make such classics as The Curse of Frankenstein and Dracula (and their 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 The Hammer Story provides a film-by-film dissection, dripping with rare promotional material and previously unpublished photographs.

Review:

'Where The Hammer Story truly succeeds (aside from the spectacular collection of photos and artwork) is in tone. This is no dry critical examination. The authors skillfully walk a fine line, treating the subject matter with reverence and respect without devolving into hero worship. The result is an information-packed book that is a true joy to read.' --Dark Scribe Magazine

'Much has been written about the "Studio That Dripped Blood," but even fans who have read it all before will want to pick up The Hammer Story by Marcus Hearn and Alan Barnes. It is a beautiful, glossy coffee table book, loaded with lovely stills, including many behind-the-scenes shots.' --Cinefantastique

About the Author:

Alan Barnes has written features for Hammer Horror, as well as scripts for 2000AD. Marcus Hearn was the editor of Hammer Horror magazine, and with co-author Alan Barnes, he has written Tarantino A-Zed, and Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang.
