Program Description

Event Details

For the month of October, we are showing horror movies made by Hammer Films.  The British studio made a name for themselves by updating the Universal monster movies of the 1930s.  They launched the careers of actors such as Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, Oliver Reed, and Donald Sutherland.

We will be watching Terence Fisher's 1958 film "Horror of Dracula" starring Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee, and Michael Gough.

Jonathan Harker rouses the ire of Count Dracula after he accepts a job at the vampire's castle under false pretenses. Harker's friend, Dr. Van Helsing, then embarks on a hunt for the predatory villain when he targets Harker's loved ones.
