Absolutely wonderful coffee table book for anyone interested in the world of Hammer Horror and British Horror film history.

There are great pages detailing each film and how it was made, plus biography's of actors who worked with the company regularly like Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing.

I appreciate this book is for quite a niche audience, but this is a wonderful authorized guide particularly for that niche.

(One thing for any readers that expect this book to detail the recent resurgence of Hammer, with films like The Woman in Black, you should be aware it doesn't).

I bought this as a gift, so I can't myself comment on the contents. But I do know that the person I gave it to loves it, began to read it immediately and is reading it from cover to cover with great interest. It was delivered promptly in good condition, so all round I can recommend this.

They really have done very well with this book. Nice balance between the amount of text and images as well. Sections are as follows ...

Reanimation 1955 -- 1964
From The Quatermass Xperiment to The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb

Fresh Blood 1965 -- 1969
From She to Taste The Blood of Dracula

Setting Son 1970 -- 1975
From The Vampire Lovers to To The Devil a Daughter

Life After Death 1975 Onwards

That's about it, really.

This is the way a history should be written, it covers all the relevant facts, provides interesting bits of info, reproduces lots of rare memorabillia and is easy to read.

It is obvious it has been a labour of love and Marcus Hearn deserves a huge pat on the back for the time and effort he has put into this work which has been so carefully and lovingly compiled.

If you are looking for a book on Hammer films, this is it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've always loved Hammer Studios, especially their horror output, so when I saw this book I just knew I had to buy it.

The book is just amazing and it is written by a fan, rather than some clever wind-bag.

Everything one wants to know about Hammer is here, and it starts from the beginning, right up to their final film: "To The Devil, A Daughter." I'd recommend this book to everyone who loves and misses a truly golden age of cinema.
