Episode 16 Taste of Fear

scream-of-fear-aka-taste-of-fear-everett

Hello! And welcome to the sixteenth episode of Hammer House of Podcast, where Paul Cornell (Doctor Who, Elementary) and Lizbeth Myles (Verity!) discuss, in order of UK release, every horror movie made by Hammer Film Productions between 1955 and 1976, from The Quatermass Xperiment to To the Devil… A Daughter.

This episode we’re joined by documentary-maker Chris Chapman for the delightful horror-thriller A Taste of Fear. After the last Hammer thiller, there was some trepidation approaching this one, but Jimmy Sangster rarely disappoints. A Taste of Fear is a gorgeous movie, one that we’re slightly bewildered isn’t more well known, and if you haven’t seen we advise you to try and give it a watch before listening to the podcast. So often the final act of a horror or a thriller can leave you feeling disappointed and unsatisfied, but A Taste of Fear is so very keen that that doesn’t happen, and is very much worth going into entirely unspoiled.

Bonus Episode 14 Frightmare

frightmare.21192

The fifteenth bonus episode of Hammer House of Podcast is up now!

This month we return to our Patreon requests with 1974’s Frightmare. Now, that poster may have made us a little nervous. We like our nice, cosy, Gothic horror, and this one has a rather disturbed lady with a drill in it. However, as it turned out, it was pretty great. And the more we talked about it, the more I really appreciated how great it was.

As this is a Patrons only episode, and a thank you for supporting our podcast, it’s only available on Patreon and not our regular podcast feed. This, and all previous bonus episodes, are available to all new Patrons for as little as $1 a month.

Episode 15 The Full Treatment

Hello! And welcome to the fifteenth episode of Hammer House of Podcast, where Paul Cornell (Doctor Who, Elementary) and Lizbeth Myles (Verity!) discuss, in order of UK release, every horror movie made by Hammer Film Productions between 1955 and 1976, from The Quatermass Xperiment to To the Devil… A Daughter.

The Full Treatment’s American title is Stop Me Before I Kill! Should you trust films with exclamation marks in their titles? Well, yes (and also trust podcasts with exclamation marks in their titles, ahem, Verity!, ahem). Should you watch The Full Treatment? Heck, no. That’s not to say it’s uniformly awful, it’s not. There are a lot of good points. Alas, any good points are buried beneath the emotionally messed-up hero who attempts to kill his wife several times and we’re supposed to sympathise with his misery and not the poor woman he’s trying to kill. I made a lot of notes. Most of them were swearing.

Bonus Episode 14 Tales That Witness Madness

talesthatwitnessmadness

The fourteenth bonus episode of Hammer House of Podcast is up now!

This month we’re back to the portmanteaus, and while this may look suspiciously like an Amicus feature, it’s not. But it’s just as spiffy, and has four delightful macabre tales where we learn important things like tigers are dangerous, don’t bring weird-looking trees indoors, and creepy men can also secretly be cannibals. Hurrah!

As this is a Patrons only episode, and a thank you for supporting our podcast, it’s only available on Patreon and not our regular podcast feed. This, and all previous bonus episodes, are available to any new Patrons for as little as $1 a month.

Episode 14 The Two Faces of Dr Jekyll

Hello! And welcome to the fourteenth episode of Hammer House of Podcast, where Paul Cornell (Doctor Who, Elementary) and Lizbeth Myles (Verity!) discuss, in order of UK release, every horror movie made by Hammer Film Productions between 1955 and 1976, from The Quatermass Xperiment to To the Devil… A Daughter.

In this month’s Hammer House of Podcast, we reach 1960’s The Two Faces of Dr Jekyll. Don’t let the title fool you, there’s only one face, but it comes in bearded and clean-shaven version. Marvel at how both Jekyll and Hyde are awful people! Delight that Christopher Lee has a real proper acting part that he’s very good at! And despair at the endless can-can scenes!

Episode 13 The Brides of Dracula

Hello! And welcome to the thirteenth episode of Hammer House of Podcast, where Paul Cornell (Doctor Who, Elementary) and Lizbeth Myles (Verity!) discuss, in order of UK release, every horror movie made by Hammer Film Productions between 1955 and 1976, from The Quatermass Xperiment to To the Devil… A Daughter.

We’re a whole year old! And we start off 2019 with 1960’s superlative The Brides of Dracula. After the success of Hammer’s first vampire film, The Horror of Dracula, Dracula is back in their first vampire sequel, The Brides of Dracula! …oh, no, he’s not. Oh dear. Not to worry, what need have we for Dracula when there’s Peter Cushing? And he actually is back as the marvellously dashing Van Helsing, ready to save the world – or at least Transylvania and the Lower Danube – from the evils of vampirism in one of Hammer’s most magnificent movies.
