In the Night of Hammer

ARCHIVE
1970

Brush up on your classics with fifteen horror films at the Musée d'Orsay!

It was in England, where horror films have always been popular, that the creatures and monsters of 19th century literature were reborn in the 1960s, thanks to Hammer, a cinema company that would make them its trademark.
Specialists in low budget films, the Hammer Films production company decided in 1957 to revive the monsters and creatures of what was known as Gothic horror by adding colour and more realistic violence. The architect of this revival was none other than Terence Fisher. In 1957, the huge international success of his Frankenstein adaptation, The Curse of Frankenstein, followed the next year by The Horror of Dracula resulted in the appearance of various imitations all over the world and helped re-launch the genre.
Hammer productions brought back all the romanticism, magic and occultism of the 19th century through the novels of Mary Shelley and Bram Stocker, Arthur Conan Doyle and Robert Louis Stevenson.
"The Hammer Touch is a joyful mix of the anarchic and the popular, focusing on sexualised fantasy where blood flows freely, attracting a cult following of ardent fans in a legendary Parisian cinema, the Midi-Minuit."
