The Summer of Hammer begins! The legendary British studio receives the multi-episode treatment that it truly deserves. First up, Hammer calls in a favor from Hong Kong, as the Shaw Brothers lend their kung-fu expertise, in a martial arts/horror spectacular! The seven brothers, and their one sister, do battle with the lord of all vampires, Dracula! Oh, and seven other vampires. That's right, it's The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires (1974)! And then from there, it's more traditional Hammer horror territory, as a master swordsman/vampire hunter is summoned to a small village, to put an end to the scourge of the undead! After dispatching some local ruffians and putting the moves on Caroline Munro, of course. And burying some dead toads? I'm afraid so. Grab your swords and whip 'em out, it's Captain Kronos: Vampire Hunter (1974)!
