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.
