Hammer Horror stamps

by Ghastly McNasty

Any fans of Hammer Horror films would drool rabidly at the news; Royal Mail are releasing 6 stamps to honour 50 years of British Film industry. Three of them are Hammer Horror related and the other three are from the Carry On series.

Their film posters were adapted for the stamps. The films honoured were; Dracula, The Curse of Frankenstein and The Mummy. Not only are they honoured on stamps but they are on postcards and stamps sheets.

Normally, I am not a stamp collector, but I might get them for myself. I loved Hammer Horror films as I used them to watch late at night when I was 8 years old. Dracula was always my favourite horror character and Christopher Lee topped them all.

They are available to buy from 10th June.
