Background: Hammer Films (also known as "Hammer Film Productions" and formerly known as "Hammer Productions") is a British film company founded in 1934 that is mainly known for producing horror films, especially from the 1950s to the 1970s, with films such asThe Curse of Frankenstein,Dracula, andThe Mummy(1959). They have also produced non-horror films such asCaptain Clegg,She, andThe Anniversary. After the release ofThe Lady Vanishesin 1979, Hammer remained largely inactive throughout the 80s, 90s, and 2000s until the release ofBeyond the Ravein 2008, and they have continued to produce horror films ever since, with more projects continuing into 2018. Simon Oakes serves as the studio's current CEO.


Logo: Similar to the Marvel Studios logo. We see comic-book style images zooming out, all related to films produced by the company. the images are contained within the word "HAMMER". Some images fade to others, before the text fades to a solid red.

Later Variant: the logo is a lighter red, and the bottom is curved, like the Netflix logo. Also, the byline "AN EXCLUSIVE MEDIA COMPANY" fades in.

FX/SFX: The Images, the zooming.

: The Opening music of the film.

Availability: Seen on films by the company from 2010 onwards.

Editor's Note: None.
