#TOOCOOLTUESDAY: The Monsters of Hammer : A Screen Bestiary is an amazing exhibition housed at De Montfort University, Leicester within the University's Cinema and Television History research centre (CATH), which now holds some of Hammer films scripts archive. The exhibition was designed by a third-year DMU design student named Chelsea Walker. It's an pretty amazing accomplishment. I particularly like the text of DRACULA written in blood, that trickles off the glass screen around the exhibit, and on the FLOOR!  the exhibition contains the draft script, of an idea called 'DRACULA ON ICE: The Legend of the Arch Vampire' by Don Houghton, the writer behind Hammer / Cushing / Lee Dracula AD 1972, The Satanic Rites of Dracula, several tv dramas and some BBC Doctor Who episodes too . . . These images were sent to me a few weeks ago. I have no idea where they came from, or who took the pics . . maybe the person who sent them? If you are in Leicester, UK you may want to scout this exhibition out...it's very cool . . .
