I have started watching my way through the 21 Hammer movies that make up the recently acquired Ultimate Hammer Box Set. I aim to view at least one of these films per week, but knowing my viewing habits only too well, I wouldn't be surprised if it takes me a few years to make it through this massive set.
I started off with Hammer's version of H. Rider Haggard's She. I had previously covered this production for the World of Hammer Glamour site and just re-read what I had written at the time. Must admit I was surprised how much I had managed to cover and am wondering where all my time has gone. I need to really start writing more in depth reviews again for those wonderful productions.
