Scars of Dracula/Horror of Frankenstein Pressbook!



  1. This was double-featured stateside by an obscure company named Continental Films, which shows how much the cachet of Hammer Films had fallen by 1970. Once co-financed by biggies like Universal and Columbia, the company's films were looking shoddy and dated by the new decade. Still, I enjoy both movies, and the novelization of the Dracula installment was read and reread many times in my youth. It had nudity in its pages! Woo-hoo!!

  2. Well, even today Hammer's stuff seems to be distributed cheaply (and probably shoddily -- at least from what I've seen of a few Hammer movies on DVD in my collection).... it's too bad.
