Another first for us here at Attack From Planet B, we bring you our first book review, yes those things with pictures and sometimes words in them.
We will be having a look through the pages of this new offering from Titan Books, The Hammer Vault. This book tells the story of Hammer Films through treasures from the company’s archive. Like many of the other ‘Vault’ type titles around many of these are previously unseen and show some amazing titbits from the world of Hammer.
But what makes this Vault so much more than those that have come before it? Head inside to find out.
The walls are bulging and the cells are full in Kim’s Video Dungeon this month. So what horrors await the unfortunate visitors to the depths of Kim’s oubliette? Well, a hoard of Hammer goodies from the vaults of the legendary purveyors of schlock.
Sex changing monsters running amuck in the streets of old London town in Dr. Jekyll & Sister Hyde to Prisoner war films The Camp on Blood Island and Yesterday’s enemy. Not to forget as well, Kim Newman’s Dungeon Breakout release for June.
There are many other films that have been reviewed by Kim, which can be found in the June issue of Empire Magazine (uk).
As a an eminent resident of the creature features that can be found amongst the B-Movie world, the werewolf has always had a sense truth about it, that deep within anybody there is a beast trying to escape and be free to do what it likes.
Here at ‘Attack from Planet B’ we have come up with our top werewolf films. In this list you won’t find the likes of the great werewolf films from Universal or the likes of ‘American Werewolf in London’, this list is more to do with the unsung but known films of werewolf genre.
So enjoy, discuss, disagree and comment.
