    Now I want to go back over my Hammer collection and re watch Oh for having the time to do that I wish This is a very light history of Hammer Nothing like what Marcus Hearn produces but still worth a read for us Hammer obsessives Set into different chapters on Frankenstein, Dracula, thrillers etc, a couple of interviews and an interesting last chapter on non Hammer films which may have either been influenced by Hammer or an extension.An OK book to add to my Hammer collection.
