Hammer Film Productions is most remembered for their gothic horror films made from the mid-1950s until the 1970s. They made many other movies in other genres, but their horror movies are the most well known. Before 1970, they were generally unrated, allowing them to be more graphic or violent than was typical in theaters at the time. Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing were among the actors that frequently were involved in Hammer’s horror movies.
