Hammer Horror Films: A List

In February 2019, I set out to watch all of the original Hammer horror movies. Last night I saw the very last one. I’m working on a piece exploring why these movies, with all their schlock and cheese, still hold such a dear spot in so many of our hearts, but I just can’t help but celebrate being done with this silly movie marathon.

Hammer TV (2)

From Hounds of the Baskervilles (1959)

It wasn’t easy. Not only did it take a whole lot of hours to watch them all, but several were very hard to find. Most came from Amazon and YouTube, but DailyMotion and some even less reputable sites were mined. More than once, our local hipster haven of a video store came through for me when I couldn’t find a title anywhere else.

(It’s probably no mistake that the most difficult ones to find turned out to be the most egregiously racist. Of course, if they tried to hide the sexist ones, very few would be left in circulation at all.)

Below is the Hammer horrors list that I followed, which I adapted only slightly from a list I found at iMDb, removing just a couple that weren’t actually horror but were adventure or sci fi instead.

How many have you seen?
