Review news

I currently intend to concentrate on reviewing the various Hammer vampire movies, which I have split into three categories of films:

Dracula Movies

Horror of Dracula (1958)
Brides of Dracula (1960)
Dracula, Prince of Darkness (1965)
Dracula has risen from the Grave (1968)
Taste the Blood of Dracula (1969)
Scars of Dracula (1970)
Dracula AD 1972 (1972)
Satanic Rites of Dracula (1974)
Legend of the seven golden vampires (1974)

Carmilla Movies

The Vampire lovers (1970)
Lust for a Vampire (1970)
Twins of Evil (1971)

Miscellaneous Vampires

Kiss of the Vampire (1962)
Countess Dracula (1970)
Vampire Circus (1971)
Captain Kronos Vampire Hunter (1972)

I will go from category to category; starting with the Dracula films and follow each category through in date order. How long this will take very much depends on how much time I get to re-watch each movie and then write the review. Reviews of other movies will continue, interspersed, if I pick up any new movies during the “Hammer Project” or catch anything on TV. The desire to do this has come from two directions, firstly – in the main – the Hammer films are great movies and secondly because within the movies listed above are some of the most important vampire movies produced.
