EP 48 The Day of the Triffids
We both get miserable watching the BBC version of Day of the Triffids. No not the Eddie Hazard one, the proper one from the 80s. Time to get the weed killer out as we look at Day of the Triffids.

EP 46 A Christmas Carol
Merry Christmas or Bah Humbug! We explore the greatest Christmas ghost story of all time, Charles Dicken’s A Christmas Carol, with the help of some of our listeners. We look indepth at its popularity…. who are we kidding, its just us rambling on for an hour!

EP 34a Tower of Fear Confession.

EP 33 Dog Soldiers
We’re back and its a full moon so lets go for a walk in the Scottish Highlands. That seems like a good idea. A Scottish Werewolf in Luxembourg anyone? We’re howling about the 2002 film Dog Soldiers. Here’s the link to the sequel teaser we mentioned. Its probably not worth watching. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-C9utlT9z6A As always if you want to talk to us you find us in the following places.

EP 2 Hammer’s Dracula
Our first full-length episode tackles one of the big boys, Hammer’s Dracula (or Horror of Dracula, if you speak American). Warning: the psychoanalytical interpretation of “staking” is discussed.
EP 29 The Signalman
It’s Christmas! Its a ghost story! By Charles Dickens. No, not that one. Its the first of our festive episodes covering the Ghost Stories for Christmas series. And we start by looking at The Signalman, a great story to read whilst commuting. If you fancy reading the original story, it can be found here on Project Gutenberg https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/1289 If you want to tell us what you think of this adaptation then you can tell us on Facebook, Twitter or via...
EP 26 Frankenstein & the Monster From Hell
One of the last Hammer Horror Films and the last one for Terrance Fisher. Its a bit of a dry run for Star Wars with Peter Cushing bossing Dave Prowse around. Simon Helder is great or is that Shane Briant? Just what does Chris say about Madeline Smith? Is there an even lower budget version of this film called Frankenstein and the Monster From Hull? Find out in our newest episode. If you want to contact us you can do that in the following ways: Twitter where we are...
EP 23 The Plague of the Zombies
Cornwall. The county of pasties, tin mines and clotted cream. Home of King Arthur, Jamaica Inn and Lands End. Go surfing in Newquay or check out the moors. But we all know that the biggest tourist attraction is, of course, Zombies. And a bit of voodoo. They’re as Cornish as ice cream! Don’t believe us, then go and watch Hammer’s The Plague of the Zombies. Do you agree with our discussion of the film? Or think we’re talking rubbish? Perhaps you’re from the Cornish Tourist Board? Either...
EP 20 And Now The Screaming Starts
After being quiet last time, we though we would start screaming this week. We discuss the 1973 Amicus film And Now The Screaming Starts starring Peter Cushing and Herbert Lom, when they can be bothered to turn up. Based on the out of print book Fengriffen, which you can pick up for a few hundred quid, is Screaming a classic? If you would like to discuss this episode or just want to tell us we’re wrong then contact us at email@example.com and we’ll definitely read your email...
EP 19 The Quiet Ones
It’s Hammer time! New Hammer from 2014 but enough of this shouting, there’s something odd about Jane Harper, if you ignore the torture, Stockholm syndrome and demonic possession. So come on don’t feel the noise, lets be The Quiet Ones. In the episode we talk about the events that inspired this film, The Philip Experiment. Details can be found on here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philip_experiment The original theme music is back this episode but did you like the my selection of comedy...
EP 10 The Abominable Dr. Phibes
Before the creation of the NHS, the only free medical assistance available in Britain was provided by a crazy organist with a waxwork face made to look like it belongs to Vincent Price. Survival rates were very bad. Noted public health experts Chris and Paul have all the details.
EP 9 Die Monster Die
Does “colour” have a “u” in it? Brits think yes, Americans think no. Let’s settle this once and for all by travelling back to 1965 and asking Boris Karloff. We could also make an adaption of H P Lovecraft’s The Colour/Color Out of Space whilst we’re there.
