summer, Don Fearney's comprehensive video documentary examining Hammer's
vampire films has finally been released on dvd. Don previewed the documentary
last year at the launch of Wayne Kinsey's Hammer Films: The Elstree Studios
Years book launch, and again at this year's Captain Kronos event,
both of which Don organised.
For the dvd
release, the documentary has been tightened and now runs at 96 minutes.
Including interviews with many familiar Hammer names both in front of and behind
particular interest to fans is the contributions from actor John
Forbes-Robertson and screenwriter Tudor Gates who both died recently.
features include a Tudor Gates interview, a rare archival sound recording
interview with writer/director John Gilling and a gallery of production designs
related to the vampire films.
All in all
a splendid package which should delight Hammer vampire fans.
