Famous Monsters of Filmland


Famous Monsters Ack-Ives Volume 2: The House of Hammer

Famous Monsters Ack-Ives Volume 2: The House of Hammer
Horror got a whole new colorful image with the establishment of Hammer Film Productions in 1934, and now 85 years later, the brand is still synonymous with gore, exploitation, and legendary horror icons like Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, and Ingrid Pitt. As this Hammer edition of the ACK-IVES indicates, Famous Monsters of Filmland was along for the ride, from HORROR OF DRACULA to THE VAMPIRE LOVERS, and championed Britain’s new monster canon with countless features and photographs.
The “Ack-Ives”, thus named after FM’s longtime Editor-in-Chief Forrest J Ackerman, consists of carefully curated selections from the magazine’s 60-plus year history, from classic “Filmbooks” to more current interviews. Each volume boasts a brand new cover painting and at least one as yet unpublished feature, bringing monster fans up to date on a veritable smorgasbord of topics!
This very special SDCC® edition of the Hammer Ack-Ives features an all-new Sanjulian cover of Christopher Lee in THE CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN.

Price: $17
