Description: As part of their Halloween horror season screenings, the American Cinematheque presents this double bill of horror classic produced by England's Hammer Fillms. Hammer re-established horror as a profitable genre after a decade of sci-fi flicks; unlike the Universal classics of the 1940s, however, Hammer presented their horrors in vivid color, to make the red blood all the more noticeable. Seen today, the gore seems tame, but the craftsmanship remains impressive, and the films retain their aura of excitement.
