Hammer Horror: To Terrify the World!

Founded in 1934, the British film production house of Hammer is now the natural home of campy horror and low-budget thrills. This talk looks at the stars, the movies and the times that helped make Hammer a worldwide success. From Count Dracula in swinging 60s London to crazed Egyptologists, vampiric twins and even a brief experiment in Kung Flu flicks, Hammer films never disappoint.
