Hammer Productions

I watched "Let Me In" which said it was a hammer production. I'm not too fimilar with hammer films besides the stuff I hear from people always saying they're good horror films but is "Let Me in" the same as I hear? I'm gonna research a little bit about it too.

Yeah HAmmer films have been around since the 30's. They did mostly crime/Noir films then it the late 50's they started making Horror films for which they are now famous with Chris Lee and Peter Cushing being their pronominal stars.
They went strong til the early 70's but the increasing sex and violence of the genre made their films seem a bit redundant and they production pretty much stopped.

They were bought about 5 years ago and started making moves again and have made some decent stuff like Wake Wood and the remakes of
The Woman in Black and Let Me In.

Yeah I read up on it after I posted it and I guess I just never know the production company that did them. I've watched some of the movies. Is the Woman in Black any good? I thought Let Me In had a great plot and just a good movie.

Yes its pretty good and the original is excellent.

But you should really check out their earlier stuff from the 60s (and early 70s) they are a big part of horror history. Hammer/Universal/AIP are the corner stone of this genre.

The best of the Hammer Films (in my humble opinion)
Horror Of Dracula (1958, best vampire film ever)
Curse Of Frankenstein (1957)
Brides Of Dracula
Curse Of The Werewolf (1961)
Hound Of The Baskervilles
Dracula, Prince Of Darkness
The Mummy

These are just a few of the many, many films and TV shows produced by Hammer.Some are better than others but there all worth checking out, especially if your a fan of classic gothic style horror.

Damn, how did I forget that one. It's a great film with a great title. You may want to add "The Reptile " to your list.
