Horror films have long been one of the strongest genres. From low-budget to multi-million dollar productions, the creation of horror on the big screen has driven audiences to theaters and video stores, from VHS to DVD to digital platforms.
From the 50s when they resurrected characters to today”s chillers, Hammer’s films combined horror with erotic tension and served as what is now a study in cinema.
This extensive 1994 148-minute documentary takes the viewer from the 1950’s, when they pumped Technicolor blood into old monsters like Frankenstein and Dracula, to chillers like ‘Let The Right One In” and “The Lady In Black”. Flesh & Blood explores the pre-historic monsters to the creation of masks as it delves into the history of one of the great horror filmmakers of all time.
Narrated by Peter Cushing, in his last film appearance, and Christopher Lee.
