Hammer Films was one of the gold standard in the horror genre. Their beautifully shot films creeping with nightmarish monsters and gorgeous women in peril set the table for production companies like Blumhouse. Now Hammer is set to come back in a huge way!
Per Bloody Disgusting:
You can’t talk about the history of horror without talking about Hammer Horror, with Hammer Film Productions over the years releasing countless classic and still pumping out new horror to this day. And more Hammer Horror is on the way!
Variety reports today that Hammer Films has joined forces with Network Distributing to form Hammer Studios Ltd., the latest evolution of the iconic British film production company.
Variety explains, “The new entity will manage and control Hammer’s interests in its vast library of content such as “The Woman in Black” (2012), “Let Me In” (2010), “Dracula” (1958), “The Abominable Snowman” (1957) and “The Quatermass Experiment” (1953).
“Hammer Studios will invest substantially both in restoration and new production development from both its owned and newly created IP.”
Maybe now we can finally start to get some good classic horror movies again with the like of Dracula, Wolfman, etc.
