The Heritage of Hammer!
19 August 2003 | by (Newfoundland, Canada) – See all my reviews

A more complete and fascinating study of the heritage left behind by Hammer Studios will not likely ever be done quite this well in this format again. To hear the narrative thoughts of Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee on their time with Hammer and its eventual rise and fall prove fascinating as do the many comments and interviews from the likes of Jimmy Sangster, Val Guest, Hazel Court, Ingrid Pitt, Caroline Munro, Michael Carreras, Raquel Welch, James Bernard and Tony Hinds's son. This is sure to thrill and delight any true fan of Hammer Horror. In fact it's a must-have!
