Editorial Reviews

FANEX Film Conventions were held in Baltimore/Washington D.C. from 1984 through 2004. Over that time, hundreds of actors and filmmakers from the world of classic horror films attended and spoke, to the delight of their many fans who traveled from across North America to see them. The iconic and sexy stars at Hammer Films distinguished themsleves as fan favorites over the years. Despite having to endure grueling transatlantic flights, they always arrived cheerful and ready to answer questions and sign autographs. Hammer Films was the undisputed capital of horror in the 1950s and 60s, filling a void left when American studios fell in love with flying saucers, aliens and atomic mutants. Between the golden age of cinema horror in the 1930s and 40s, when Universal Studios introduced the four immortal icons of movie terror (Dracula, The Wolfman, The Mummy and Frankenstein's Monster) and the big budget horror revival of the 1970s and 80s (sparked by The Exorcist, Friday the 13th, and Nightmare on Elm Street,) Hammer Films was the only refuge for fans of the macabre who were eager to quench their thirst for classic chills. The small British studio did the unthinkable, taking the most famous of the old black-and-white monster tales and remaking them in blood-curdling color. This fascinating documentary tells the story of the talented people behind and in front of the cameras at the Hammer Film Studios. Their prodigious output made household names of Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee, arguably the greatest fright duo since Lugosi and Karloff. Filled with shocking clips, terrifying trailers, and fascinating interviews with cast and crew culled from twenty years of the FANEX Film Convention archives, this film is a horror fan's delight! Featuring Appearances by Christopher Lee, Veronica Carlson, Ingrid Pitt, James Bernard, Val Guest, Jimmy Sangster, Freddie Francis, Caroline Munro, Virginia Wetherall, Michael Ripper and Barbara Shelley.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Slither Down Memory Lane ! September 9, 2009

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for Hammer Fans! September 9, 2009
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.
