'Studying Hammer Horror' treats Hammer as a quintessentially British product and through a study of its work investigates larger conceptions of national horror cinemas. The book examines genre, stardom, and representation within case studies of 'Curse of Frankenstein', 'Twins of Evil', and Hammer's latest film, 'Beyond the Rave', and weighs Hammer's impact on the British film industry, past and present.

Intended for students, fans, and general readers, this book transcends superficial preconceptions of Hammer horror in order to reach the essence of Hammer.
