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.
