British Hammer Horror studio to return

Hammer_Dracula.jpgThe British horror classic studio Hammer Horror is set to return. Once upon a time they were responsible for such films as Dracula, The Mummy, The Brides of Dracula, films from the late fifties and early sixties starring such names as Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing.

Except now the company isn't British. Hammer has been sold to a Dutch company along with its entire back catalogue, that's something like three hundred films.

Apparently, from the BBC story, the company have big plans for Hammer, and there's not a mention of sequels in there, although you'd be mad to think that they wouldn't consider it. They're talking about developing the Hammer potential to a globabl audience, and they mention that they're going to use the internet and mobile phones.

Ah well, there goes the "great British brand" then.
