Very Good Look at Hammer's Vampire Series
4 May 2016 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Legend of Hammer Vampires (2008)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Jimmy Sangster, Janina Faye, Carol Marsch, Christopher Matthews, Caroline Munro, David Prowse and Yvonne Moniaur are among the Hammer vets who are interviewed in this documentary that covers all of the vampire films made by the British studio.

If you're a fan of Hammer then you'll certainly want to watch this 97 minute documentary that takes a look at everything from HORROR TO Dracula to THE LEGEND OF THE SEVEN GOLDEN VAMPIRES and everything in between. The first film gets a few extra minutes of time devoted to it but the various sequels and re-imagined films.

The documentary does a very good job at going through the films in the order that they were made. This here gives you a great idea of how the times and films were changing. The added bit of sexuality for stuff like THE VAMPIRE LOVERS and TWINS OF EVIL is discussed as is the new setting for something like Dracula A.D. 1972. The interviews are certainly an added bonus since just about every film has someone involved with it here discussing it.

The film features clips from all the movies but even better are getting to see various posters and original artwork that was used to promote the films. The interviews are certainly an added bonus and helps make this a very entertaining documentary.
