..the Hammer tale is entertaining reading, as well as a valuable document. History of Horrors also does what a great film book should: It makes you want to see the movies again.

A History of Horrors traces the life and spirit of the "House of Hammer" from its fledging days of the late 1940s, through its successes of the 1950s and 60s, to its decline in the 1970s. Through the eyes of many of the studio's key players, and through the works of film critics and historians, the book paints a vivid and fascinating picture of the rise and fall of a film empire, offering what author Denis Meikle refers to as "the truth behind that legend."
