HAMMER CLASSICS SEASON

Saturday nights at 9.00 PM on Horror

Horror Channel celebrates vintage 1950s home-grown fantasy and horror with a Hammer Classics Season. The primetime Saturday night season, consisting of four network premieres, which star the iconic Peter Cushing, kicks off with Val Guest's atmospheric masterpiece, The Abominable Snowman.

The other three, all directed by Terence Fisher, are the brilliantly lurid The Curse of Frankenstein (1957), the hypnotically sensual and gory Dracula (1958), which launched Cushing and Christopher Lee into global stardom, and The Mummy (1959), perhaps the most critically well-received Hammer movie of all time.
