It's almost here!  We're in the final five days of the 31 Days of Horror and it's starting to feel like Christmas Eve.  I've got my big foot slippers on, my wife tucked me into bed saying I couldn't stay up late to watch any more movies because I have to be well rested for the big day.

If you haven't guessed by now, I love a horror movie with atmosphere. When a movie can suck you in and feel unique, that's the sign of a great movie. Luckily for me, throughout the 50's, 60's and 70's, Hammer Studios managed to put out a slew of horror films that fit this bill perfectly.

I've been an outspoken fan of the Hammer Studios brand of horror for a long long time. Each and every one of their movies packed in a rather luxurious atmosphere unique to the studio with it's own brand of story telling.
