  1. Got 19. I love the 80s. Predator must be one of my all time favorites. I can almost quote the entire movie from memory. How pathetic is that??

12 Essential Hammer Horror Films

Hammer was the little film company that blazed a trail through horror movie history. While Hammer produced a wide variety of films, including comedies, crime films, sci-fi and even caveman fantasy epics like  One Million Years B.C. , it was as a maker of horror films that it became most famous.
