I've been a Hammer fan since I was 10 years old. By today's standards...and I use the word "standards" loosely...some of the films are dated and even cheap looking. But that shouldn't matter. There's something amazing about these movies that have endured over the decades. Something that makes us "old timers" want to pass them on to our kids. I've recently started watching select Hammer movies with my nine year old daughter and get more of a kick out of her talking about them than I did from actually watching them. As I said, they're dated. So far the only one I've shown her that scared her was "Plague Of The Zombies", and even that didn't keep her up. My wife thinks it's cute that I get excited for the new Hammer coming out. I took a vacation day to see "Woman In Black" because I couldn't wait until after work. I plan on doing the same thing for "The Quiet Ones". Will all the new Hammer be good? Absolutely not. Does that matter? Absolutely not. Hammer could make a movie out of the phone book and I would be there with bells on. I'll take one great one for every ten crappy ones... as long as the Hammer name keeps popping up on the screen in front of me. How many other production companies have a following? Disney? That's all I can think of, and even the most die hard Disney fans won't run out to see a movie just because it's Disney. Hammer fans, on the other hand...well, that's a different story.
