Hello! And welcome to the fifteenth 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 Full Treatment’s American title is Stop Me Before I Kill! Should you trust films with exclamation marks in their titles? Well, yes (and also trust podcasts with exclamation marks in their titles, ahem, Verity!, ahem). Should you watch The Full Treatment? Heck, no. That’s not to say it’s uniformly awful, it’s not. There are a lot of good points. Alas, any good points are buried beneath the emotionally messed-up hero who attempts to kill his wife several times and we’re supposed to sympathise with his misery and not the poor woman he’s trying to kill. I made a lot of notes. Most of them were swearing.
