Site News 14.06.05

I've been busy writing up some features for elsewhere and so haven't had a chance to update the site the last couple of weeks - my apologies. The good news is, as those on the LustForHammer mailing list already know, there are a whole batch of new reviews, interviews and features on the way.

If you've been lucky enough to see the DRACULA A TALE OF UNDYING LOVE play touring the UK, you'll know that a great new version of the Bram Stoker novel is preparing for a West End run at a future date. We popped along to a performance a couple of weeks ago and will be sharing our thoughts. We also chatted at length with former Doctor Who, and current Van Helsing, COLIN BAKER. Colin talked to us about the play, the relationship between Van Helsing and the dreaded Count, Doctor Who old and new, and Hammer horror! We'd hoped to bring the interview to you a while ago, but the transcription took a little longer than foreseen. Should be ready soon.

We have a few other interviews on the way, and our report from Bradford's Fantastic Films Festival. There's also news on this autumns' Festival of Fantastic Films in Manchester.

COMPETITION. Don't forget our current competition to win one of the excellent dvds of HOUSE OF WAX starring Vincent Price, and remember the dvd also includes the original MYSTERY OF THE WAX MUSEUM.

And plenty more. Expect more features to be added, and expanding coverage of cult film and tv starting July. If you have any thoughts please email me at with "Hammer Site" marked in your subject line.
