Studying Hammer Horror

This chapter explores how a Hammer film looks like in the twenty-first century. In an article in Empire magazine, new Hammer CEO Simon Oakes states that Let Me In (2010) is the first new Hammer release. However, the film, a US-set remake of the Swedish film Let the Right One In (2008), was not Hammer's first twenty-first century production. In 2008, the studio released the web series Beyond the Rave via MySpace in a conscious attempt to reach the new internet-savvy youth market. The project was somewhat experimental, and released long before online distributors such as Netflix and Amazon began producing material exclusively for their streaming platforms. The production seems to have been airbrushed from history — a search for it on the official Hammer website produces no results. The chapter then looks at James Watkins's The Woman in Black (2012).
