    I have been watching Frankenstein Created Woman There is something about them that I can work and I can watch them now and then and delight in the same old actors in the same roles- Peter Cushing for instance. There is a comfort in them and a sense of comedy

    OMG! I just love these old movies. They were all shot on small budgets, but they remain some of the most beautiful movies it has been my honour to enjoy.

    Hammer Time

    I honestly cannnot remember what my first Hammer film was, or when I saw it, but it must have made an impact. I got hooked on Hammer Horror thanks to the vamps in his films and Christopher Lee,  well.........one of if not the best vamps on the screen!!  Scary but draws...

    I Love Their Movies!

    From 1958 classic Dracula to their (often) wonderful 1970´s output, Hammer made movies with classic monsters, gorgeous visuals and atmosphere... Too bad they don´t make such fun films anymore!

    Yes, Yes Yes

    Oh wow! My parents have a lot of these movies on VHS and DVD. I`m forever borrowing them. They are so garishly beautiful. I remember wanting to grow up and be as beautiful and evil as Ingrid Pitt.

    Horror Gets Color And Class.

    With "The Curse of Frankenstien" and "Dracula" (a.k.a. "Horror of Dracula") Hammer Films ended the 1950's by establishing a winning formula for gothic horror movies. A strong cast-you can't get better than Peter Cushing (the Baron,Sherlock Holmes, Van Helsing...) and Christopher...

    Midnight, Tonight

    Tonight might just have to be "Curse of the Werewolf" night.  Reading flutterbly's story reminded me that I haven't seen an Oliver Reed flick in a while. Wish I could have more of a chill in the air, like a brisk Halloween night.  And a storm going on with...

    I loved watching those movies on TV

    when I was growing up in the 70's and 80's. The gothic settings and rich vivid colours were striking but not striking as much as some of the leading ladies. Valerie Leon and Ingrid Pitt especially come to mind. Also, the late Christopher Lee was by far the best Count Dracula.
