Episode 31 Hysteria

Hysteria1965Poster

Hello! And welcome to the thirty-first episode of Hammer House of Podcast, where Paul Cornell (Doctor Who, Elementary) and Lizbeth Myles (Big Finish, 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.

There is no hysteria in 1965’s Hysteria. There is, however, a plot so convoluted that even its perpetrators don’t understand what’s going on.

Bonus Episode 30 What Became Of Jack And Jill?

jackandjill

 

June’s bonus episode is Amicus’s What Became of Jack and Jill? (1972). It’s an awful film, really awful. Now let’s pretend this never happened and look forward to next month’s Horror Express.

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 30 She

she1965

Hello! And welcome to the thirtieth episode of Hammer House of Podcast, where Paul Cornell (Doctor Who, Elementary) and Lizbeth Myles (Big Finish, 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.

Here is a terrible, terrible plan: take a story written in 1887 and filled with Victorian racist tropes, and then make it into a film 80 years and include all of those racist tropes. That’s what happens with 1965’s She.

Bonus Episode 29 Dead of Night

deadofnight

May’s bonus episode is Dead of Night (1945), a Patreon request, and the very first horror anthology film, heavily influencing Amicus’s own anthologies. And originating the trope of the evil ventriloquist dummy. It’s also a darn fine film.

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 29 Fanatic

Fanatic_1965_poster

Hello! And welcome to the twenty-ninth episode of Hammer House of Podcast, where Paul Cornell (Doctor Who, Elementary) and Lizbeth Myles (Big Finish, 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 don’t want to raise expectations, but 1965’s Fanatic is a bit great. And, despite the title, there’s actually a fanatic in it! Shock, horror! Join as as we flail about classy direction, witty dialogue, and the astonishing life of Tallulah Bankhead.
