Review: The Art of Hammer

19 November 2010 7:45 AM, PST | Corona's Coming Attractions | See recent Corona's Coming Attractions news »

If you're knowledgeable about your film history, a fan of classic horror movies or grew up a generation ago in the British Isles then you are familiar with the name of Hammer Films. While the company's origins lie in the 1930s, Hammer's film legacy truly began with its run of modestly budgeted gothic horror movies in the 1950s. Over the spread of the next three decades, the name of Hammer Films became synonymous with several actors like Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee who made their mark playing the doomed scientist or the prince of darkness, Count Dracula, respectively.

The Art of Hammer collects the movie poster artwork from Hammer's collection of films from the 1950s to the end of the 1970s. It was a time when British audiences ate up Hammer's high concept (but low budgeted) B-movies, films that offered frights, thrills and sometimes a glimpse of a young lass' bosum in her undergarments. »
