Little Shoppe of Horrors #23
When Hammer made four films back-to-back in 1965, at their Thames side Bray Studios, as part of their pact with 20th Century Fox and 7Arts, the two big name productions were DRACULA PRINCE OF DARKNESS and RASPUTIN THE MAD MONK, both starring Christopher Lee. But over the years THE PLAGUE OF THE ZOMBIES and THE REPTILE, both directed by John Gilling, and sometimes called “the Cornwall Classics (they were set in the British county of Cornwall)”, have become more popular than the lead films.
