Episode 4 Quatermass 2

514PFFZBM2L

Greetings! And welcome to the fourth 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 episode we’re discussing 1957’s Quatermass 2, where Brian Donlevy once again causes despair as he upsets the carefully laid plans of some aliens who just want to help out the British economy. Probably. Learn about the poor condition of roads in the north of Britain! Marvel at the tiny little spaceship-shaped meteorites! Breathe a sigh of relief that this is the last we see of Brian Donlevy’s Quatermass!

Bonus Episode 3 On The Buses

onthebuses450

The third bonus episode is now up for our patrons. It’s the first of our the first of our Patron selected films. Our generous Patron who made this episode possible is Carl Morries, and the film selected is 1971’s On The Buses, which is a Hammer film but isn’t a horror. Unless you’re scared of buses, in which case beware; there are a lot of buses. They are red.

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 Patreons.)

Episode 3 The Curse of Frankenstein

Greetings! And welcome to the third 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 episode we’re discussing 1957’s The Curse of Frankenstein, Hammer’s first colour movie and the most influential British horror film of them all (probably). Peter Cushing’s in this one! He’s in it a lot! He’s brilliant, he is. Alas the entire podcast is not about how amazing Peter Cushing is; we also cover such topics as how bad parenting can lead to your kid going body-snatching, why you shouldn’t be distracted by guinea pigs, and how annoying it is when guillotines don’t drop.

The second bonus episode is now up for our patrons. Today it’s 1967’s Torture Garden; a cornucopia of macabre delights, including misrepresentation of an adorable cat, a very upset piano, and Peter Cushing having to put up with an overeager fanboy drinking all his wine.

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. (And all previous bonus episodes are available to any new Patreons.)

Episode 2 X the Unknown

Hello! And welcome to the second episode of Hammer House of Podcast, where Paul Cornell (Doctor Who, Elementary) and L.M. 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 discussing 1956’s X the Unknown where one of us is ever so pleased it’s set in Scotland, there is an entirely reasonable argument about whether a goopy-porridge like substance from the Earth’s core is a metaphor for nuclear war, and we are ever so delighted to have an American scientist not played by Brian Donlevy.
