BLOGATHON… Second Hammer-Amicus Blogathon Wrap up with Words from Judy Matheson


All good things come to an end…


It’s the final day with those lateR posts for the Second Hammer Amicus blogathon




So it has come around already. After three days of wonderful posts here, some great discussions on Twitter and a fabulous star turn from Judy Matheson that this the Second Hammer Amicus blogathon ends today. Thanks to all those of you who have contributed such wonderful, well researched and beautiful tributes so far. I’ve enjoyed reading all your entries. Day 3 and today’s entrants, your posts will be commented on in the next few days, I promise.

I’d like to thanks my wonderful co-host Barry from Cinematic Catharsis for joining me again this year and everyone who has posted so far. Also thanks anyone who joined in by reading or liking a post on Facebook, Twitter or beyond. Also to those of you on Twitter who have contributed to discussions or in supporting other entrants, thanks you’ve all been a pleasure to work with.

I’d also like to thank the lovely actress, Judy Matheson. Judy not only joined me in an exclusive interview (HERE for updated post), but has been promoting this blogathon both on Twitter and on her Facebook pages. If you want to meet this lovely actress, as well as some other lovely ladies from Hammer films she told me she is appearing at the International Vampire Film and Arts Festival this July (all details if you click on this link HERE. As sadly its physically difficult for me to go – as I’m here in Finland – please give her a heartfelt thanks as part of a big thanks from me for joining us this year. I’m however open to a guest post on this anyone who does go.

The good news is that Barry and I are joining forces again next year with the third year of this blogathon. We are also running another blogathon which involves an actor from this franchise. I’m sure I speak for Barry too, when I say we’d love you to be there everyone and anyone who has made this blogathon such a fabulous success. So if you have just joined us now..

And now for some closing words from Judy Matheson…

This has been such a fun experience to be part of. I’ve really loved all the in-depth critiques of the films – there are some wonderful writers out there! I particularly enjoyed the appreciation of The Vampire Lovers & the multi layered dissection of Mircalla’s portrayal. But they were all terrific & my knowledge of film has increased hugely. Congratulations & thanks to all you amazing bloggers! Already looking forward to next year’s! Big thanks to Gill & Barry for producing the Blogathon.

If this blogathon has whetted your appetite for more blood blogathons I’d love to (in a final shameless promotion) invite you HERE to my blogathon with Emma K Wall on all things Jeff Goldblum…

  1. Was Ms. Matheson referring to my article on The Vampire Lovers? What a thrill to think that she even read my words! Thanks again, Gill, for putting this blogathon together with Barry and involving Ms. Matheson. It was a lot of fun.

    1. Its been a fantastic year this year, huge credit to you for doing what was my “night shift” – worked out perfectly with 24 hours of blogathon shared between us. The discussions and support from everyone from Judy and our blogathon entrants and just random others has been quite overwhelming. Thank you Barry! Looking forward to our blogging adventures next year as always enjoy our collaborations.
