The greatness, fall and renaissance of Hammer, the flagship company of British popular cinema, mainly from 1955 to 1968. Tortured women and sadistic monsters populated oppressive scenarios in provocative productions that shocked censorship and disgusted critics but fascinated the public; movies in which horror was shown in offensive colors; dreadful stories, told without prejudices, that offered fear, blood, sex and stunning performances.
