Episode 13 The Brides of Dracula

brides-of-dracula-poster

 

Hello! And welcome to the thirteenth 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.

We’re a whole year old! And we start off 2019 with 1960’s superlative The Brides of Dracula. After the success of Hammer’s first vampire film, The Horror of Dracula, Dracula is back in their first vampire sequel, The Brides of Dracula! …oh, no, he’s not. Oh dear. Not to worry, what need have we for Dracula when there’s Peter Cushing? And he actually is back as the marvellously dashing Van Helsing, ready to save the world – or at least Transylvania and the Lower Danube – from the evils of vampirism in one of Hammer’s most magnificent movies.

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?

Episode 12 Never Take Sweets From A Stranger

Never Take Sweets

Content warning: in this episode we’re discussing a film with themes of paedophilia and the sexual abuse of children.

Hello! And welcome to the twelfth 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.

It’s something a bit different this month, and not in a fun way. 1960’s Never Take Sweets from a Stranger is a superb and powerful film, still shockingly relevant, and very dark.

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.

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.

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.
