HammerWeb, the official Hammer Films web site, has been updated today with information about the new range of official reproduction Quad posters which were launched last week. These comprise a set of 12 posters, released one a month, featuring digitally restored original UK quad poster artwork.
The Curse of Frankenstein is the first in the series in this, its 50th anniversary year. The posters are available from www.postersandstuff.co.uk for £19.99 each with free global postage. The official Hammer Shop will also be stocking them.
Full details are available through the Hammer site (the old website, which I helped design, continues to be updated ahead of a relaunch in the coming months).
For fans who are on the various social networking sites, Hammer now has launched profiles and discussion groups on Bebo (www.bebo.com/hammerhorrorfans) and Facebook (search for “Official Hammer Films”) to accompany the myspace profile which has been operating for the last year.
