Last year, we cancelled it due to the pandemic. But it’s back from the dead this year… Cue trumpet fanfare… It is the Third Hammer and Amicus blogathon and is hosted by me and my fabulous co-host Barry from Cinematic Catharsis (HERE). And with the always perfect endorsement for joining this blogathon, it’s over to Hammer lovely, Judy Matheson – as seen in the above and below banners – who after hearing about our blogathon adds;

Judy Matheson


“It is such a joy & a privilege to be still associated with the Hammer legend, so many years after the films were made”

The good news about it is that this year we are allowing duplicates – but just the one – but the kinda bad news is we aren’t holding it next year. This is as next year, we will be tributing not one, but two actors… in two different blogathons, so keep your eyes peeled…


The Third Hammer and Amicus blogathon is being held from the 22nd to the 24th of October 2021 this year.  It does, as always include those non Horror films from these companies. So not to worry if you aren’t a horror fan as there are some great British comedies and more on their IMDB pages up for grabs.


You can also write about the big-name acting talent in these films with actors such as Oliver Reed, Christopher Lee, Richard O’Sullivan and Vincent Price… and if you are stumped for ideas check out my blogathon Who’s Doing What pages on those first and second Hammer blogathon pages. Just by clicking on their names, you will find some great Hammer and Amicus titles.


You can of course also write about the actresses who joined them in these films too… these including Judy Matheson, Diana Dors, Caroline Munro and Stephanie Beacham. But it’s all up to you… and please be respectful in all those posts…


So check out these rules and pages below, grab a banner and sign up, it will be lovely to have you…


Here are the rules…

  1. You can review ANY of their films or TV shows. Or if you want to review books or topics about these film companies, that’s ok with us too.
  2. We will allow just one duplicate for each topic be it a movie, book or TV Show. You can only write on those previously duplicated if they are in a list or retrospective review. But you can, of course, mention other films and TV in your post. A maximum of two posts per person is allowed…
  3. Review choices can be added as a comment on this page or you can contact me on my Contact Me page  – please add the name and URL of your blog along with your choice of movie/book or TV choice. Or you can send me a Direct Message on Twitter.
  4. Or if you want to write about these topics (eg actors involved), tell us what your topic will be. We won’t accept posts that are uncomplimentary or disrespectful to these talents and their works.
  5. Add your Twitter username so we can promote your post.
  6. You can also add podcasts about their work, but only if you send me the podcast link on my Contact Me page.
  7. A full list of blogs, podcasters and review choices will be posted on a separate page and updated regularly.
  8. Only original,  never before published posts will be accepted.
  9. Send your link to your post link/podcast/video to Barry or me on the days of the blogathon.
  10. Note we will be publishing all the links on both blogs on each day of the blogathon. As we both have completely different time zones this may mean you turn up on two days depending on when you add your post.
  11. All post choices must be confirmed with Barry and I first or they won’t be added to the blogathon. It is not fair to others otherwise.


These are my and Barry’s choices…

Remember you don’t have to do one of each, you can do as many or as little as you like from each…

  1. Hi Gill! Thanks for the invitation–I’ll take the two Dr. Who movies, Dr. Who and the Daleks and Daleks’ Invasion Earth 2150 A.D., if they’re still available! Mitchell

  2. I found a copy of the Hammer Hound of the Baskervilles (1959), so put me down for that one, please! Even though I’ve got my Glenn Ford blogathon and am participating in another one in October, I can’t resist joining this one too, since I got my hands on a copy after all 😉

  3. Hi Gill.

    I’d like to write something about the Amicus horror anthologies. At the moment I’m imaginatively titling this piece “The Amicus Horror Anthologies”.
