Find out how Hammer Film Productions hit their stride
DETAILS

How did a tiny Thames-side film company suddenly find its métier in Gothic horror and trigger an international revival of a long-dormant genre? Find out how Hammer Film Productions hit their stride and why Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee, in their signature roles as Baron Frankenstein and Count Dracula, were crucial to Hammer’s success. Jonathan Rigby – Lee’s authorised biographer and also the writer of the acclaimed horror histories English Gothic, American Gothic and Euro Gothic – is the ideal guide.
