Welcome to Day Two of the Great Hammer-Amicus Blogathon, hosted by Gill Jacob from Realweegiemidget Reviews and me! Yesterday’s turnout exceeded our expectations, with a tremendous batch of reviews that encompassed the history of Hammer Films from 1936 to 2010, and a survey of the best of Amicus. Today, we return with a quartet of Hammer reviews, featuring vampires, mummies and witches.
If you’re still planning to participate, don’t despair. There’s plenty of time to post your link on Day Three. Please drop me a line by commenting below, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or reach me on Twitter (@barry_cinematic).
