The name of Hammer has long been synonymous with horror, but the legendary British film company was also responsible for some of the best fantasy and science fiction films made in the UK. From the terrors of The Quatermass Xperiment through the prehistoric menace of One Million Years BC to the prophetic satire of Moon Zero Two, Hammer put every bit as much style and creativity (and more money) into its fantasy features as it did into its Gothic horrors. Directors such as Val Guest, Joseph Losey and Don Chaffey turned out spectacular fantasies for the House of Hammer, many of which are now considered to be cult classics. In Hammer Fantasy & Sci-Fi, Bruce G Hallenbeck explores the history of Hammer s many ventures into science-fantasy, setting them in the context of the genre as a whole and providing the reader with a wealth of intriguing background detail, as well as dozens of rare photos from private collections. Foreword by Martine Beswick.
