Peter Hutchings's Hammer and Beyond: The British Horror Film remains a landmark work in British film criticism. This year, a new, illustrated edition brings the book back into print for the first time in two decades.
Hammer and Beyond deserves a spot on the bookshelf of anyone with a serious interest in the development of Britain's contribution to the horror genre. Here at Abertoir we’ve been glad to call the late, great Peter Hutchings a firm friend of the festival, and it’s a pleasure to welcome film historian Johnny Walker – editor of the new edition – to launch the book with us.
Followed by a 50th anniversary screening of Dr Jeckyll and Sister Hyde.
