Episode 26 The Evil of Frankenstein

Evil-of-Frankenstein-1964-poster-2-421x650

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.

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.

Hello! And welcome to the second Christmas Special 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.

For our second Christmas Special, we’re back with another commentary, this time for the second Dalek movie. With bright and festive Daleks, Peter Cushing, and Amicus, it’s a commentary both Christmas-y and thematically relevant to the podcast! Sort of. We hope you enjoy.

Episode 24 Paranoiac

Hello! And welcome to the twenty-fourth 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 1964’s Paranoiac, Oliver Reed returns for Jimmy Sangster’s final shot at a moody suspense thriller. It has a lot to say about the advantages of being an aunt’s favourite nephew. Not least of all the fact that she’ll make a really scary mask and pretend to be your dead brother. But she’s helping (no, really, she’s actually trying to help.) And if the plot doesn’t al quite hang together, Oliver Reed does a marvellous job of distracting you from it with his acting skills.

quatermassiv_poster

 

The twenty-third bonus episode of Hammer House of Podcast is up now!

This month we have a Patron request for the Quatermass telly series from 1979. Bernard has retired to Scotland, cities are collapsing into urban warzones, and one person is writing a lot of very tidy and legible graffiti making polite threats of regicide. What terror from beyond threatens the world? And how many cups of tea will be required to defeat it?

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.
