The main features were Terence Fisher's DRACULA PRINCE OF DARKNESS and Don Sharp's RASPUTIN THE MAD MONK - both starring Christopher Lee. But the well made and intriguing second features, both directed by John Gilling, proved in many ways to be the superior films. Called the Cornish Duo because both films were set in Cornwall, they featured interesting ideas, many good performances - especially by Andre Morell, John Carson, Jacqueline Pearce and Michael Ripper - and some nice shock scenes. Who wouldn't have wanted to be bitten by Jackie Pearce!

    To be sure, Hammer had done other fantasy films with horror elements (THE FOUR SIDED TRIANGLE, STOLEN FACE, THE QUATERMASS XPERIMENT), but CoF was the film that would spread the Hammer name across the face of the earth for fans of classic gothic horrors - in color!! Bringing together for the first time actors Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee, and the key technical people that would make the Hammer golden era of horror films - director Terrence Fisher; lighting cameraman Jack Asher; production designer Bernard Robinson; music composer James Bernard; screenwriter Jimmy Sangster; producer Anthony Hinds. And all the key Bray Studios personnel that in 1956 turned the horror film world on its ears.

    SCREAM AND SCREAM AGAIN: THE UNCENSORED HISTORY OF AMICUS PRODUCTIONS by Philip Nutman:
    Amicus Productions was the only serious rival to Hammer films in the 1960's and 1970's, especially with their anthology films.
    It all started, for us horror fans, with CITY OF THE DEAD back in 1960 - a wonderful black and white tale of Witchcraft, with Christopher Lee. But the one that put Amicus on the map was DR. TERROR'S HOUSE OF HORRORS in 1964. Soon followed by two Dr.Who and the Daleks films.
    Amicus stayed active well into the 1970's with titles such as: THE DEADLY BEES, THE PSYCHOPATH, TORTURE GARDEN, THEY CAME FROM BEYOND SPACE, THE TERRORNAUTS, THE MIND OF MR. SOAMES, SCREAM AND SCREAM AGAIN, THE HOUSE THAT DRIPPED BLOOD, I, MONSTER, TALES FROM THE CRYPT, THE VAULT OF HORROR, ASYLUM, THE BEAST MUST DIE, MADHOUSE, FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE, And the Edgar Rice Burroughs films done for American-International.
    But this is more than just a history of the films - it is the story of two men - Max Rosenberg and Milton Subotsky. Together, they formed Amicus Productions, and while both New York bred and raised, and Jewish, were about as much alike as oil and water. And their clashes, while making these successful films, lead to lawsuits that would end Amicus as we knew it (the company has become active again with a former associate of Max Rosenberg, and has made several films recently).
    Here is the inside story on the making of the films, about the films And about the inside battles between Max and Milton that are almost as interesting as the films themselves.
    Illustrated with over 200 photos, ad mats and art work by Stephen Bissette, Neil Vokes, Adrian Salmon and Graham Humphreys.
