The voices are unmistakable. Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee, two names that are synonymous with Hammer horror films, team up again after 21 years to narrate this two-part documentary celebrating the famous "fear factory".
Raquel Welch, who got her first big break in the Hammer production "One Million Years BC", gives a rare interview, as do many other celebrities, directors, producers, special-effects experts and composers, all of whom talk about Hammer's influence on both British and American cinema.
There is also some rarely seen footage from a US TV pilot film of Frankenstein and a 'home movie' taken at Bray Studios during the production of Dracula, Prince of Darkness, as well as clips from early Hammer films such as the production "Mystery of the Marie Celeste" with Bela Lugosi.
The wonderful theatrical trailers advertising the films get dusted off, too: "They really sum up the hype that was so much a part of Hammer," says director Ted Newsom. "For all the production value and terrific acting, they were still designed as popular entertainments."
