WELCOME... to the one and only site devoted to Australian posters for the films of Britain's HAMMER STUDIOS.
In their Heyday, Hammer Films were rightly regarded as Britain's leading creators of cinematic Horror. Dracula, The Curse of Frankenstein, Quartermass and the Pit, The Devil Rides Out - these are not just cult favourites, but movies fondly recalled by cinema-going audiences worldwide. Also remembered is the remarkable roll-call of leading players - Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, Oliver Reed, Bette Davis, Ingrid Pitt, Ursula Andress, Raquel Welch, Caroline Munro, Julie Ege - as well as Directors and Writers such as terence Fisher and Jimmy Sangster who were responsible for crafting that special Hammer atmosphere.
(Hammer House of Horror - Behind the Screams, by Howard Maxford)
Please note, this site is in its early days, as time goes by I will add reviews for each film, also added info about each poster and the films release in Australia. There will be comparisons to posters from other countries and all sorts of interesting info for the hammer Film Fanatic. Also coming soon is a comprehensive guide to Australian posters in general.
Some Questions pre-empted and answered! (but do feel free to contact me anytime)
ARE THE POSTERS FOR SALE ON THIS SITE FOR SALE?
No, they aren't. These posters are part of my personal collection and have taken me many years to compile. HOWEVER! I do sell posters, and often have Hammer items available, I am happy to take want lists or be sure to check my ebay store for Original movie items.
ARE THE POSTERS FOR SALE ON THIS SITE ORIGINAL?
YES, so far there have been no Australian Hammer posters reproduced for commercial sales (in fact there are very few fake aussie posters).
DO YOU BUY POSTERS?
Yes! I sure do. I buy Australian Hammer posters (ones I am missing) for my personal collection, also other interesting posters. But also am a dealer and Buy posters to re-sell, sell on consignment and even trade with collectors.
