Episode 22 Maniac

maniac1963

Hello! And welcome to the twenty-second 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.

In 1963’s Maniac (also known as *The* Maniac), we journey to France, and fine scenery, and a surprising array of animals (turkeys!). Alas, while one might expect from the title they’re about to enjoy a fast-paced thrilling horror, this is not the case. Thank goodness there are pretty shots where you can see people horse-riding across the beach. One of us was more impressed by this movie than the other, but not by the end of the podcast. Liz feels very guilty about this.

Episode 4 Quatermass 2

514PFFZBM2L

Greetings! And welcome to the fourth 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.

In this episode we’re discussing 1957’s Quatermass 2, where Brian Donlevy once again causes despair as he upsets the carefully laid plans of some aliens who just want to help out the British economy. Probably. Learn about the poor condition of roads in the north of Britain! Marvel at the tiny little spaceship-shaped meteorites! Breathe a sigh of relief that this is the last we see of Brian Donlevy’s Quatermass!
