There are countless books on Hammer Films, this one is a bit different in that it deals with just the Vampire output from the much-missed studio. Bruce G Hallenbeck gives a thorough description of each film, together with production information from many who worked on them. Well illustrated, mostly black and white, but several centre pages in colour, this is an excellent book for Hammer enthusiasts or anyone wishing to find out more about the iconic studio and it's vampires.

As a coffee table browse, this is certainly decent enough to interest the casual viewer who enjoys the Hammer gothic style of vampire movies.
There are some interesting bits of information and photos, but it isn't really an in depth look at the films that I was hoping.
As an introduction - fine. For anyone wanting real detailed analysis, I think you need to look at the various Hammer books of MArcus Hearn or Wayne Kinsey to really dig deep enough.
