Episode 8 The Revenge of Frankenstein

RevengeOfFrankenstein

Hello! And welcome to the eighth 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 month it’s The Revenge of Frankenstein, sequel to the superb Curse of Frankenstein. Can it possibly live up to its predecessor? Well, it does feature rather more guinea pigs, so it’s off to a good start. And these ones wheek. More importantly, there’s Peter Cushing dashing around the place, cutting up chicken and people, and working on fixing all his mistakes of the first film. Hurrah! Character development! We apologise for the length of this episode. We rather liked the movie.

The seventh bonus episode of Hammer House of Podcast is now up. This month it’s a very generous and lovely patron who’s given us Carry On Screaming! One of us was very dubious about this choice, one of us was rather delighted, and then we watched it…I’ll say no more.

Episode 7 The Snorkel

Hello! And welcome to the seventh 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.

The Snorkel. There is a film called The Snorkel. And that’s what we’re discussing in this week’s Hammer House of Podcast. Is it a horror? Probably not. Is it any good? Yes, yes it is. And not just because there’s a sneaky murder plan where a snorkel is integral. There’s also a plucky girl detective and her dog, Toto, who are going to solve this mystery, beautiful location filming in Italy, and a murderer who only knows two ways to kill people: drowning, and death by snorkel shenanigans.

Bonus Episode 6 Asylum

Asylum

The sixth bonus episode of Hammer House of Podcast is now up. This month we continue with the Amicus portmanteau films but, alas, have reached one with a literal title. Luckily there’s a walking decapitated head, a tiny organic robot, and Peter Cushing being marvellous to distract from a title that actually makes sense.

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, should you like to sign-up!

 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.

Bonus Episode 5 The Haunting

The fifth bonus episode of Hammer House of Podcast is now up. This month one of our most excellent Patrons has nominated a fine movie, a very fine movie indeed: The Haunting (1963). Is this the greatest haunted house movie ever made? Yes, yes it is. So sit back, relax, and learn how to see faces in doors and walls, and jump at every booming noise you ever hear. Hurrah!

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?
