Hammer Horror

It's safe to say that without the old 'Hammer' horror movies we would never have had 'True Blood' or 'Kolchak' or a multitude of other films/series...Good and bad. Hammer Films is one of those memories best left where they are or in still photographs because today they are not great...Nostalgic, yeah...Good? Nope.

Still, as a youth they were incredible and were the first time I ever thought of sex and horror making the perfect kind of film for a pubescent pre-teen. And I started to draw those scenes from the films back in the 80s when a writer and I worked to create a comic based upon the first Hammer 'Dracula' film. (Side note: Because of Hammer I tried to read the original 'Dracula' book by Stoker and it was, and still is, incredibly boring. It wasn't until I was in my 40s and had a copy of an annotated version of Dracula that I actually understood it. Still...Boring.)
But it was the 'Hammer Glamour (An actual term used for the actresses of Hammer Films) that I loved drawing...So, here we are. Enjoy.

 Tomorrow...The 'Queen' of Hammer.
