Classics for the color generation. This is how people began to describe the series of Hammer horror films that began in 1957 with THE CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN and eventually went on to introduce DRACULA, THE MUMMY, and other iconic monsters to the new set of fans growing up with FM in the 1960s and '70s.
Universal's black-and-white classics had paved the way, but Hammer's were a whole new ballgame, advertised as bloody, sexy, and much raunchier than their American counterparts.
Hammer Films also ultimately made superstars out of actors Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing, who reprised their roles as Count Dracula (Lee) and Victor Frankenstein/Van Helsing (Cushing) enough times to define the roles for a worldwide audience.
