DOC’S TOP 30 HAMMER FILMS COUNTDOWN





My Hammer review series is over, so – as a bit of fun – I’ve decided to do a countdown of my personal top thirty Hammer movies, finishing with number one. Of course many will have differing opinions, and there are probably a few surprises on this list, but I genuinely believe that these are the thirty best films to come from the studio and essential viewing for anyone new to Hammer who doesn’t wish to go through all of their output. No writing this time – I probably couldn’t write any more about Hammer if I tried – but of course you can check out the reviews of each film.

About Dr Lenera 2427 Articles
I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
