View Full Version : Are either of these films in the Hammer tradition?

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. http://www.horrordvds.com/forum/biggrin.gif

And on the eighth day....God created Hammer!

CK, Horror Express is worth checking out! I was also thinking about getting the Vampyres DVD. (It looks saucy!) Hope these reviews help you out-

Great quote, CK! Makes me want to see the movie even more. http://www.horrordvds.com/forum/biggrin.gif
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!

May the Hammer eternally bleed!

www.dvdmaniacs.net (http://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!)
