HAMMER NEWS

The eighteenth issue of Richard Klemensen's Hammer magazine Little Shoppe of Horrors is now available!

The issue features two late Hammer films, which were produced by The Avengers' Brian Clemens: Captain Kronos - Vampire Hunter and Dr Jekyll and Sister Hyde. Bruce G. Hallenback examines each film in detail, supported by interviews with people like Horst Janson, composer Laurie Johnson and veteran fight-arranger William Hobbs.

Other articles include a look at Jacques Tourneur's Night of the Demon, and the second part of Wes Walker's look at Hammer's business dealings.

The magazine will be available from specialist dealers (I got mine in the Cinema Store, in Covent Garden), or from the Little Shoppe of Horrors website.
