Episode 19 Captain Clegg

captainclegg

Hello! And welcome to the nineteenth 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.

Technically, maybe, Captain Clegg may not be a horror movie, but it does have Peter Cushing in it, and a scary marsh, and skeletons on skeletal horses…which sounds quite horror-ish but that’s merely a cunning ruse in the first five minutes to suggest it might be a horror. And the first two minutes is a cunning to ruse to suggest it might be a pirate movie. It is neither of these things. Rather tis a charming tale of 18th century village life very rudely interrupted by some soldiers who have issues with reasonably priced fine wines. For shame.

Episode 17 The Curse of the Werewolf

curseofthewerewolfHello! And welcome to the seventeenth 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.

The Curse of the Werewolf is a charming tale with beautiful sets, characters, and performances. Or it’s a thing that happens with no shape or point. There may be some slight disagreement this episode, but no-one can disagree about the goats: they are delightful. More goats please.
