Are either of these films in the Hammer tradition?

  1. CK, I'd say that both of the film mentioned do have that Hammer feel to them. Check both out, I doubt you'll be disappointed. [​IMG]

    Great quote, CK! Makes me want to see the movie even more. [​IMG]
    Another movie that oozes Hammer is The Company of Wolves. With it's dream like imagery, incredible atmosphere, and terrific set design, it could almost pass off as a latter day Hammer movie. Too bad it's not on DVD yet!

    Uhh, okay... Vampyres is definitely now on my list! Porn with fangs - I love it!

    www.dvdmaniacs.net has two different reviews for Horror Express. Apparently two different companies have released that film onto DVD.

    I watched Horror Express on television as a child and found it a frightening experience. It's well worth a viewing. I remember the music being chilling and the effects were great (for the time). Vampyres is a movie I bought on VHS in the UK some time ago - I believe the version I bought was cut. I'd recommend it to any Hammer fan as it's definitely in the same vein (no pun intended!)
