Wake Wood (Film Review)

Hammer is one of the iconic film studios, known throughout the world. Its films elevated the likes of Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing into the stratosphere. Unfortunately they closed in the 80s, banishing British horror to a limbo like state, with only films like 28 days later and long time dead escaping the void. But like a phoenix rising from the ashes of the old, hammer studios returned a few years ago. It may have fulfilled the wishes of the horror community, but those well wishes haven’t been satisfied as of yet. All that we have seen from the rejuvenated icon is a remake of a Swedish film and a limp Hilary Swank vehicle. But now the studio has finally got its act together and has released a film that is true to its legacy. That film is Wake wood.
