Vampire Lovers. Ingrid. No contest.

Missed a chance to meet the lovely Ingrid. Luckily my mate got me a promo poster for her autobiography signed for me with love and kisses x.

She was great in her first Doctor Who guest spot in '72, fresh out of the Hammers, when her co-star - Jon Pertwee - from The House That Dripped Blood was the star, complete with Hammer style heaving cleavage. "He has the bearing of a god" she said of The Master (the wonderful Roger Delgado. The less said about her second in the 80s with Peter Davison, the better. Karate kicking the pantomime horse style monster of the week, whose paint hadn't even dried!

Might as well mention here that I also missed a chance to meet one of the biggest two Hammer stars, fresh from Star Wars and Lord of the Rings, Christopher Lee. He was doing a signing session and I didn't go because of f****g hangover!!! Idiot!!

"Curse Of The Werewolf" replete with a great score by Benjamin Frankel.


That's my Top #1 as well.
Apart from all the things in it that I love in a werewolf movie, it has the incomparable Yvonne Romain.


Yvonne Romain? Sheila! (As in "The Last of...) I will certainly give this movie priority level.

A contender for best werewolf film of all time. But I prefer the Yvonne from Brides of Dracula...

All I know is, the way Yvonne looks in her peasant-girl outfit was enough to send me into hormone overload as a boy.

Good for you. Odd innit? She stopped Ollie Reed from turning into a werewolf (if memory serves me) by staying with him. For most of us it would send us howling at the moon and turn into an animal...

So what's a good one for me to watch tonight? Curse of the Werewolf? Plague of the Zombies? Dracula Has Risen from the Grave?

Whew! Maybe I should. But in which order? Ah ha!

Hmm. Good question.
How about do some preliminary beers before hand and let the booze decide the sequencing?

I'm supposed to drink before watching Hammer horror? I did not know that, sir, I did not know that!

Wait, we needed a reason to drink?!
Well, color me flummoxed.

So that's how it works? Ohhhhhhhh.

Well then, may as well head over to Mulleady's pub and have a Guinness or two. (They're so bitter though, yuk.)

I've always had a soft spot for DRACULA HAS RISEN FROM THE GRAVE, which is one of the first Hammer films I saw. It was also the first Hammer film to receive a rating under the MPAA's newly-implemented rating system, and despite some considerable flowing of blood, the film inexplicably received a [G] rating. That would never happen to a Hammer film again.

Three classics but my fave of the three is Curse of the Werewolf. Pathos helps rise it above the others for me.

I ended up not getting around to any of them last night, but, it's "Halloween week" now, so I'll get to them and others over this last week of October.

I'm actually planning on Ken Russell's The Lair of the White Worm this evening; it kind of works as a very tongue-in-cheek Hammer horror.

Considering my behavior lately, this seems apt.

Yeah, but you only turn into a monster if you get wet or fed after midnight.

The Curse of the Werewolf tonight as I head into "Halloween weekend."

It surprised me - I pictured it as a black and white movie taking place in early 1960s London; instead it's a color historical drama taking place in Spain. Like Excalibur, we cover about three generations, so Oliver Reed doesn't appear until the second half and is not seen in his iconic wolfman make-up until the last few scenes.



Benjamin Frankel's score didn't excite me until the final sequence; there he really conjures up excitement.

Particular lovely ladies in this one: Josephine Llewelyn (possible the daughter of Desmond L. who has a small pre-James Bond role in this), Catherine Feller and, of course, the last of Sheila herself Yvonne Romain, now sadly the widow of Leslie Bricusse.
