Found on the delightful and deliciously deranged (and sometimes nsfw) Deadlicious blog, these Hammer Films playing cards were produced by the Heritage Toy and Game Company in the early 90’s.
Nothing fancy here, just card faces decorated with stills, most of them in black and white, from classic Hammer Horrors, including a handful of Frankensteins.
The Deadlicious blog, by its own definition, celebrates “lowbrow art to hardcore bikes, trash literature, tattoos, weird things of all kinds”. Our hosts, if you can get your brains around this, are Frenchmen who wear luchadores masks and, among other things, create unique rock n’roll pastries and pies. No kidding. I, for one, know where I’m heading first next time I’m in Paris.
Filo Loco of the Deadlicious crew, has invited Frankensteinia to join the Deadlicious Hot Blog Circle, an informal gathering of blogs that display “cool stuff, free spirit and attitude”. I'm game!
