A British mag primarily devoted to horror films produced by Hammer Studios, which became tremendously successful with revisions of classic movie monsters in the ’50s, ’60s & ’70s with colorful, gruesome (for that time) films featuring Frankenstein, Dracula, the Mummy, the Werewolf and other horror mainstays, as well as creations of their own.The films’ high production quality, solid talent in actors such as Christopher Lee & Peter Cushing, as well as a fair amount of female flesh, whether they be damsels in distress or the causes of distress, make them highly enjoyable.
