Fancy seeing a a host of Hammer horror in the dark dank depths of The Old Vic Tunnels in London? Well, starting Friday 10 February, theflickerclub.com and Hammer are presenting bloody classics like The Reptile, Frankenstein Created Woman and The Vampire Lovers and bringing them face to face with their 21st century counterparts: Wake Wood, Let Me In and the eagerly-awaited The Woman in Black, starring Daniel Radcliffe.
While the screening for The Woman In Black sold out weeks ago, there’s still a feast for fans, with special guests like novelist/film critic Kim Newman, historian Marcus Hearn and Hammer veteran Madeline Smith treating attendees with readings and introductions, plus there’s the world premiere of the new HD version of Dracula that’s not be missed.
