The Hammer-Amicus Blogathon IV – Final Recap


The Hammer-Amicus Blogathon Banner

All good things must come to an end, and so concludes the fourth edition of the Hammer-Amicus Blogathon, hosted by Yours Truly and Gill from Realweegiemidget Reviews. I can’t thank Gill enough for being such a wonderful co-host, and look forward to our future collaborations. And thanks to you, dear bloggers (and readers), for helping to make this something truly special. With 28 confirmed bloggers contributing (As of December 4th), this has been one of our biggest blogathons yet!

The Gorgon

As always, we were impressed with the variety of fascinating posts about the movies and people that made these two beloved production companies so exceptional. If we get any additional late submissions this week I’ll add ‘em to the list below.

The Skull

As Gill mentioned on her blog, Hammer-Amicus will take a break next year, but we look forward to its return in 2025. Meanwhile, since 2024 is just around the corner, we’d like to remind you that we have two brand-new blogathons looming on the horizon, and we’re itching to tell you about them. … Except you’ll have to wait just a bit longer. Until then, please enjoy the sensational posts below, and stay tuned for more blogging fun in the New Year!
