Bonus Episode 20 City of the Dead/The Skull

The twentieth bonus episode of Hammer House of Podcast is up now!

And, yes, this is a double episode. Why is it a double episode? Well there are very good reasons, very sound and good reasons, which are wholly Paul’s fault.

But what an excellent pair of films to have together! A gorgeously atmospheric tale of witches in a very English America, followed by a Cushing and Lee pic where they actually *talk* to one another without any manner of attempted murder for whole scenes! Also, there is SkullCam. Which is excellent and NoseSkullCam, which is arguably the single greatest directorial choice we’ve seen so far in our voyage through horror.

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.

Christmas Special! Doctor Who and the Daleks Commentary

Dr._Who_and_the_Daleks_Poster

Hello! And welcome to the first 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 inaugral Christmas Special, we’ve recorded a commentary for the delightful Doctor Who and the Daleks. Which, yes, isn’t horror, but it is Amicus, and it does have Peter Cushing, so it’s…sort of in the right area. And what could be more festive than multi-coloured Daleks and Peter Cushing in a fake moustache?

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.

The eleventh bonus episode of Hammer House of Podcast is up now!

This month we return to out Patreon choices with 1974’s The Beast Must Die (the *only* film with a Werewolf Break). It’s a delightful combo of Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None, and The Most Dangerous Game. With werewolves.

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 Patrons for as little as $1 a month.

Bonus Episode 10 The Vault of Horror

Vault_of_Horror_(1973)

The tenth bonus episode of Hammer House of Podcast is up now!

This month we’re back to the Amicus portmanteau films with 1973’s The Vault of Horror, where we sample a variety of imaginative vampiric cuisine, marvel at Tom Baker’s epic beard, and learn the single biggest mistake one can make in an insurance scam: believing that the perfect plan includes getting yourself buried alive.

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 Patrons for as little as $1 a month.

Bonus Episode 8 Tales from the Crypt

The eighth bonus episode of Hammer House of Podcast is now up. This month we’re returning to the Amicus portmanteau films with 1972’s Tales from the Crypt, a delightful assortment of stories featuring Joan Collins as an inept murderer foiled by Santa Claus, and the scariest Crystal Maze challenge ever created. Alas, while there is a cryptkeeper, it’s not *the* Crypt-Keeper. He does have a nice cowl though.

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!

Bonus Episode 4 The House That Dripped Blood

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.
