Christopher Webster [Celluloid 12.16.10] movie book horror



Over fifty years ago, with the release of The Curse of Frankenstein and Christopher Lee’s iconic performance in Dracula, Hammer ushered in a whole new era of blood and barely-restrained cleavage. But like many low budget genre houses of days gone by, Hammer is probably just as famous for the way it promoted its films as for the films themselves. In fact in some cases, the eye-catching posters outdid the movies and have lived on while their celluloid counterparts have not fared so well.

THE ART OF HAMMER from Titan Books collects nearly 300 posters and lobby cards drawn from Hammers own archive, and private collections worldwide. This glorious hardcover brings together rare artwork from around the world. Featuring Hammer’s greatest films, including The Curse of Frankenstein, the Dracula series, and many more.
