Episode 27 The Gorgon

gorgon

Hello! And welcome to the twenty-seventh 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.

For 1964’s The Gorgon, we’re joined by the brilliant John Rogers, creator of Leverage and The Librarians. (If you’ve no interest in Hammer, but love The Librarians, I rec the first five minutes of the podcast.) Prepare for a deep dive into the messy awesomenes of The Gorgon, a healthy amount of perfectly rational love for Peter Cushing, and ardent appreciation of how much Barbara Shelley can do with such thinly written characters.

We are on Twitter and Facebook, where you can keep up-to- date with our podcast, and we have a Patreon campaign if you’d like to support the podcast and gain access to a bonus episode every month.

Bonus Episode 26 Scream And Scream Again

ScreamAndScreamAgain

This year’s second bonus episode is the rather marvellous Scream and Scream Again. Starring Vincent Price, Christopher Lee, and Peter Cushing. Don’t get *too* excited though. Cushing’s only in one scene, and not with the other two. But a movie with Peter Cushing is always better than one without.

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 26 The Evil of Frankenstein

Hello! And welcome to the twenty-sixth 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.

Ah, The Evil of Frankenstein. A Frankenstein movie. From Hammer. With Peter Cushing. What could go wrong? Or, a question with a shorter answer, what went right with this movie? Tis a sad month at the Hammer House of Podcast as we discuss the most painfully underwhelming of the Frankenstein series.

Episode 25 Nightmare

Hello! And welcome to the twenty-fifth 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.

In Nightmare, there is, in fact, a nightmare. Hurrah! It’s quite a good one too, and by good, I mean scary. Mostly though we’re in the real world and enjoying a classy black and white thriller. About driving people mad. As you do.
