Virgin Vampires

"Anyone schooled in Hammer — even at an elementary level — can see that the duo has succeeded. Personally, having recently consumed the Blu-rays of the early 1970s’ Vampire Circus and Twins Of Evil, I could see the stamp permeating every page: a heavy cloak of Gothic atmosphere, rich period details, tight corsets to best accentuate the cleavage …”

- Reviewer Rod Lott on Virgin Vampires, the graphic novel created by writer Douglas Brode and artist Joe Orsak

Dark Horse Teams Up With Hammer Films

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Movies, Dark Horse Comics

Let Me In posterComic book publishing house is teaming up with Hammer Films to print a series of comic books and graphic novels in the horror genre (fitting, right?).

First up on their list is a storyline based on Hammer’s upcoming remake of last year’s Swedish film, Let the Right One In (which you must add it to your Netflix queue right now if you haven’t yet). Despite the fact that it has been released in the midst of the current teenage-vampire-lust trend, this tale of a 12 year-old boy and his friendship with a girl who only comes out to play at night is far removed from your typical fare—trust me!

No word yet as to the novels’ storyline, but the companies claim that it “will incorporate some of the film’s characters and mythology with some fresh themes.”

The American remake, starring of current Hit Girl fame and Richard Jenkins, is set to hit theaters on October 1st. Knowing those smart marketers, I’m sure we can expect some of the said comics to be sold in conjunction with the film’s release.
