    For anyone who has ever wondered what happened behind-the-scenes at Hammer Studios, this is the book for you. For anyone who has never seen a Hammer film, this book would be a good start. And for anyone who is a cinema buff in general, this would make a nice gift. Hammer Films became THE horror production studio during the 1950s and 1960s. Based in England, they used low-cost budgets with excellent casts to create atmospheric, and rather gory, monster movies which helped to revitalize the genre.

And for anyone who is a cinema buff in general, this would make a nice gift. Hammer Films became THE horror production studio during the 1950s and 1960s. Based in England, they used low-cost budgets with excellent casts to create atmospheric, and rather gory, monster movies which helped to revitalize the genre. The movies became cult hits and helped rebuild the post-war homegrown British film industry. Dracula. Frankenstein. The Werewolf. Dinosaurs. Aliens. All Hammer specialties. This book does not get into plots of the movies but instead displays rare memorabilia, including never-used posters and personalized script notations. Every single Hammer movie gets its own section, with many photographs of on-set pictures and backlot cast get-togethers. This makes it a different book and very enlightening for me. For instance, I have never seen the Sherlock Holmes films with Peter Cushing, which is now a must-see, given Cushing’s legendary fastidiousness (perfect for Holmes). There are also movies which never featured monsters but instead focused on human suspense, so now I am trying to find those to stream. The entire book is lovely to hold, a real effort was made here. Book Season = Autumn (fangs and crypts)

    Author Marcus Hearn is quickly becoming the go-to guy for all things Hammer. He has devoted his efforts to several collections focusing on specific elements, including a gorgeous book of poster art called The Art of Hammer: The Official Poster Collection From the Archive of Hammer Films and another that told the history of the film studio with The Hammer Story .

Next came a salute to the leading ladies with Hammer Glamour (which spawned a 2012 calendar of the same title), and now he has returned after an extensive journey digging in the crates with The Hammer Vault. If Hearn simply compiled one large anthology for the subject I fear the cost would keep the item far out of my reach. I am glad that each of these elements is given its own volume thereby allowing some financial breathing room before the next installment is unleashed.

    A good entry in the Vault series, this deals with the great Hammer studios. As with it's brethren, excellent prose and photographs, I just with there were a bit more in the repro area. I don't know, having been a child during Hammer's heyday, but perhaps back then such things weren't as important when releasing a movie. Still a fine book and a welcome addition to the bookshelf.

    A visual feast for Hammer fans, including, alongside the expected horror, suspense thrillers and swashbuckling movies that are now largely forgotten. Contains stills, scripts, and much more besides.

    I'm a Hammer junkie and have been a fan since I was old enough to persuade my Dad to let me stay up late enough to watch all the movies back when they were shown on Friday and Saturday nights in the 70s. This book brought back so many memories for me - great pics, wonderful stories and a refreshingly modern take on how the whole Hammer Business began, prospered and faded. A fitting tribute to an unforgettable time in cinema.

    Nice images and artifacts, but truly only for Hammer experts, as it does not include synopses of films. Novices and those only familiar with the Hammer classics will be lost. Such newbies would be better served by reading in conjunction with a more thorough reference guide such as "Hammer Films An Exhaustive Filmography."
