Hammer Has Risen From The Grave

A two-day retrospective graced with a galaxy of guests and screenings.

Friday the 13th and Saturday 14th July 2012.

Screenings will include Hammer favourites and rarities, plus a world premiere of the newly restored HD release of the company’s seminal Gothic horror The Curse of Frankenstein (1957). They will be accompanied by introductions from Hammer experts (Marcus Hearn, I.Q. Hunter, Peter Hutchings, Jonathan Rigby and Robert J.E. Simpson), and Q&As with stars such as Martine Beswick, Caroline Munro, Jacqueline Pearce, Carol Cleveland, Vera Day and Madeline Smith, and film-makers such as John Hough and Renée Glynne. There will also be signings, memorabilia stalls, prizes and more. Special guest, Mark Gatiss, will close the event by introducing one of his favourite Hammer horrors.

This fantastic festival celebrates the forthcoming digitization of the Hammer Script Archive by the Cinema and Television History (CATH) Research Centre at DMU. This unique resource will soon be made available for on-line academic study.

Only 200 Festival Passes are now available at the Phoenix Square box office: £75 (full) / £65 (conc.) Please book early to avoid disappointment.
