Episode 19 Captain Clegg

captainclegg

Hello! And welcome to the nineteenth 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.

Technically, maybe, Captain Clegg may not be a horror movie, but it does have Peter Cushing in it, and a scary marsh, and skeletons on skeletal horses…which sounds quite horror-ish but that’s merely a cunning ruse in the first five minutes to suggest it might be a horror. And the first two minutes is a cunning to ruse to suggest it might be a pirate movie. It is neither of these things. Rather tis a charming tale of 18th century village life very rudely interrupted by some soldiers who have issues with reasonably priced fine wines. For shame.

Episode 18 The Shadow of the Cat

Hello! And welcome to the eighteenth 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.

Cats! Aren’t they wonderful? And just to show how wonderful they are, Hammer made a whole film about their loyalty, tenacity, intelligence, and profound sense of justice. It’s not the cat’s fault the humans keep having the same conversation over and over again, which is perhaps not the most entertaining choice that could have been made. But Barbara Shelley and Andre Morell are there to try and make things better. They don’t always succeed, but they try dammit.

Bonus Episode 17 Fiend Without A Face

fiendface

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

Fiend Without A Face is a British film set in an American airforce base in Canada. There are some Irish accents. But the important thing is if you sit through this film you get to see possibly the greatest stop motion animation ever created.

Episode 17 The Curse of the Werewolf

curseofthewerewolfHello! And welcome to the seventeenth 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 Curse of the Werewolf is a charming tale with beautiful sets, characters, and performances. Or it’s a thing that happens with no shape or point. There may be some slight disagreement this episode, but no-one can disagree about the goats: they are delightful. More goats please.

Bonus Episode 16 The Uncanny

uncanny

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

This month we return to the not!Amicus portmanteau films with a feature that tries to do for cats what Jaws did for sharks. Fortunately, it doesn’t succeed because cats are adorable and beautiful and, really, kind of right through most of the film. Also, Peter Cushing is here. Hurrah!
