Episode 11 The Man Who Could Cheat Death


Hello! And welcome to the eleventh 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 time for The Man Who Cheated Death; it’s about a man…who cheats death. Christopher Lee’s in it, which is lovely, and he wears a tux. Alas, his tux-wearing skills are not quite good enough to distract from the endless five hour scenes where words start to lose all meaning. For one of us. Paul was clearly watching an entirely different movie and didn’t think the world would end before we reached the end credits.

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.

    I was just thinking that The Asphyx (1972) would be a good double bill with The Man Who Could Cheat Death.
    have you seen The Asphyx? if so what did you think?
    I’m sure it would make a good Bonus Episode some when.

    carry on they good work you two!

    Take care

        Having listened to this podcast now I would be interested to know what you thought about The Asphyx when you get round to seeing it, Whether you enjoyed it more et cetera…..I will say there are guinea pigs in the film if that spurs you on to watch it quicker 🙂
