"The Pirates of Blood River"

Get Hammered! week concludes at Trailers from Hell with director Brian Trenchard-Smith introducing the Brit horror studio's "The Pirates of Blood River," in which Hammer regular Christopher Lee steals the show as a ruthless pirate captain invading an island settlement looking for treasure.

There aren't a lot of movies about Huguenots, but this landlocked pirate epic is one of them. Made as part of Hammer's coproduction deal with Columbia, American contract players Kerwin Mathews and Glenn Corbett seem a bit out of place, although Mathews and Lee provide some formidable swordsmanship. British censor problems led to a lot of back-and-forth to secure a less restrictive rating.
