A Slither Down Memory Lane !
Derek Flint | BROOMALL, PA USA | 09/09/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"What I adore about this charming documentary about the fondly remembered Hammer films, and the studio that created them, is that you can feel the love and sense of wonder the participants have for the subject matter. No dry-as-dust history lesson here, but rather a fun-filled romp down the dark, dank castle corridors and into the forbidden crypts of our favorite films from the "Studio That Dripped Blood".
Kudos to all involved for taking a very large wealth of material, and paring it down into a constantly entertaining 95 minutes of vintage photos, trailers and fascinating on-stage interviews from the wonderful Fanex conventions of days past. This gem is a real treat for both Hammer Film enthusiasts and horror film buffs in general, and would make a wonderful introductory presentation for those willing, or unwilling (heh,heh,heh...)victims who have yet to gaze upon the macabre masterpieces from the house of Hammer!"
A must for Hammer Fans!

"Those of us who lived in the Baltimore Area were lucky to have the FANEX Conventions here. A fan-based set of conventions, these cons brought to town a wide variety of actors we used to watch on the late late horror shows. The stories they would tell! Hammer Films are my favorites, along with Universal, of course. Because of FANEX, I got to meet some of the premier actors of Hammer- Caroline Munro, Ingrid Pitt, Martine Beswick, Veronica Carlson, Michael Ripper, and my fav, Yutte Stensgaard. Now recordings from those cons have been put together in this slick documentary on Hammer. Interviews with those in front of, and behind, the cameras make for a fascinating tale about movie-making. Some of the stories will make you laugh, some will make you feel sentimental- like when Christopher Lee talks about Peter Cushing. But it will entertain you no end. Sadly, some of these folks are no longer with us, but that's what makes this a keeper. And the price is a real deal. If you like Hammer, you should add this to your DVD library."
