Welcome to The House Of Hammer!

Each fortnight, Adam Roche, Ben Taylorson, Cev Moore and Smokey walk you through each room in Hammer Film Productions’ vast legacy, examining the ‘Hammer Heroes’ who brought the films to life, the ‘History Of The Mystery’ behind the folklore surrounding the fantastical tales, the continuing story of Hammer itself, and of course the movies…
