Review:

'Much has been written about the "Studio That Dripped Blood," but even fans who have read it all before will want to pick up The Hammer Story by Marcus Hearn and Alan Barnes. It is a beautiful, glossy coffee table book, loaded with lovely stills, including many behind-the-scenes shots.' --Cinefantastique

For the first time, Hammer have given their active backing to an authorised history of the company, and have provided unlimited access to their archives and the wealth of new material within. Now, for the first time, the crypt doors have been thrown wide open...
