Halloween 2010 is fast approaching and word has reached me that Don Fearney is organising a Hammer fan event that’s not to be missed.
The event, which takes place at the Ciné Lumière in South Kensington on Saturday October 30, will see the launch of Hammer Films: The Unsung Heroes, Wayne Kinsey’s lovingly crafted homage to the team behind the legendary studio. Veteran actress Barbara Shelley, who wrote the forward, will also be in attendance for a signing session.
On stage, Peter Cushing’s secretary Joyce Broughton will be interviewed about her years with the Hammer legend, while Quatermass 2 star Vera Day will look back at her film career.
The highlight of the event will be the premier of Fearney’s horror feature, Grave Tales – a portmanteau film in the tradition of the classic Amicus films – starring Brian Murphy of George & Mildred fame. I’m really looking forward to this and will post a review as soon as I can.
Tickets for the event are available for just £15 from Donald Fearney at 25 High Hill Ferry, Bakers Hill, London, E5 9HG (tel: 0208 8066915).
