Episode 6 The Horror of Dracula

Dracula1958poster

 Hello! And welcome to the sixth 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 1958’s Dracula or, as the Americans call it, The Horror of Dracula, where we marvel at Christopher Lee’s silhouette, and make no comment at all on how utterly dashing Peter Cushing is. For this episode we have a special guest: Marcus Hearn, Hammer’s official historian, joins us and shares his marvellously vast knowledge of this groundbreaking film.

Episode 5 The Abominable Snowman

Hello! And welcome to the fifth 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 1957’s The Abominable Snowman, where Peter Cushing really wants to find a Yeti. It’s full of very impressive snow and mountains, fear, paranoia, and a monkey that has no business being 8000 feet above sea level. But are the Yeti themselves fluffy enough? The answer is no. There might be some deep, philosphical themes going on here, but without proper fluffy Yeti, can we actually appreciate them?

The fourth bonus episode is now up for Patrons. This month we continue on with the Amicus anthology movies, and reach the bloody (haha – except there’s actually no blood at all in it) The House That Dripped Blood. Featuring a misunderstood house, Peter Cushing being exceptionally dashing, and Jon Pertwee wandering in off the set of Doctor Who.

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!
