Little Shoppe of Horrors presents
Little Shoppe of Horrors #26
While 1971 saw 10 films made by Hammer, it was also the death knell of the company as they flooded the market with horror movies. Yet during that period, they also made some of their better productions – and certainly stood out from the crowd of cheapies that were coming out. Such as HANDS OF THE RIPPER. An intelligent, and very violent for its time, film. Wonderfully acted and directed, and one of the most beautiful looking Hammer was ever to make. We take you inside the production and the people involved.
