Beyond The Rave

For our 6th and final instalment to the Vampire Tales Edition of the Hammer Horror Podcast, we head to more recent times with New Hammer films. The first of which is Beyond The Rave, a webseries launched on My Space to insert Hammer back into the popular culture main frame.

This film is truly a whole new beast delivered in 20 parts, it certainly tries to pack a punch with a blend of old and new horror (Pitt, Frost and Noone) but does it deliver?

Let Me In

The second movie in our Double Bill sees Hammer take on the remake of John Ajvide Lindqvist’s novel, Let The Right One In.

Kodi Smit-McPhee and Chloe Grace Moritz would headline the cast as the star-crossed pair, struggling to find a way to fit into society.

But how does Hammer’s version measure up. Click the audio below to listen to Ant and I throw our thoughts into the ring.

That concludes our look into The Vampire Tales of Hammer.

Stay tuned for our next series, where we look at Hammer’s Frankenstein movies.
