The Abominable Snowman (1957)
My new Mysterious Universe article is a review of one of my favorite movies: Hammer's The Abominable Snowman.
The review begins...
"From the mid 1950s to the early 1970s, the U.K.’s Hammer Film Productions ruled the roost in the field of cinematic horror. Hammer’s movies were in sharp contrast to the black and white monster productions of the 1930s and 1940s, which starred the likes of Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, and Lon Cheney, Jr. Hammer went for full-on gore, bright red blood splashed here, there, and everywhere, and lots of hot, buxom babes. And the audiences (unsurprisingly!) loved it!
"The Curse of Frankenstein (1957), Dracula (1958), The Plague of the Zombies (1966) and Quatermass and the Pit (1967) are just four of dozens of productions from Hammer that became firm favorites with horror fans."
