033 House On Haunted Hill

And we return to our regular scheduled broadcast. It’s a long overdue trip to the 1950s for William Castle’s “House On Haunted Hill”, where Vincent Price hands out handguns as party favours, a visiting doctor hands out tranquillisers like Smarties and the servants skateboard around the basement in the dark. We also look at the career of William Castle, King of Schlock and marketing genius. Watch (or re-watch) to avoid spoilers, and join us. #welcometohorror #welcometohorrorpodcast #horror...


032 You'll Know What We Did Last Summer

And we’re back. A quick catch-up this episode, just to get us all back into the swing of things. Lee, Chris and Adam discuss their activities during the summer break, including childbirth and meeting Pinball Bobby from Not For Everyone Podcast, which is still being touted as “The Most Ambitious Crossover Event In History”. Also the team rate/recommend plenty of eye-fillers for you to enjoy, and are inaugurated into The Kurt Army. Normal activities will resume in our next episode; where...


023 In The Mouth Of Madness

As requested by Bobby from the fantastic Not For Everyone Podcast; the gang sit down to watch “In The Mouth of Madness” from the maestro: Mr John Carpenter. A film in which Jürgen Prochnow cosplays as Neil Gaiman, the Police unveil interesting new community support strategies and Sam Neil wakes up screaming on the bus home (we’ve all been there). Along the way the discussion takes in our new #askwelcometohorror campaign, Lady Jennifer’s shoes, Edgar Wright’s Cornetto Trilogy, “2001: A...


022 Bride Of Frankenstien

Love is in the air for monsters, and the team are joined for this episode by special guest Lady Jennifer (The Bride of Lee’n’stein). We dial back the clock to another true classic of Universal Horror, and cinema in general: “The Bride of Frankenstein”, in which Ernest Thesiger grows his own, Karloff shares a blunt with a blind man, and Una O’Connor gets the fear. A lot. Along the way, Lady Jennifer roasts chestnuts on an open fire, Lee unboxes our Welcome To Horror T-Shirts, and Adam is...


021 The Ritual

In a change to our scheduled film, the Welcome To Horror team are joined by special guests (and genuine actual women) Ladies Jennifer and Sharon to watch Netflix original “The Ritual”. This adaptation of Adam Nevill’s novel, which seems destined to become a modern classic, has several important life lessons, including just hand over your jewellery, and absolutely never, ever, ever go camping. Along the way we discuss Rocky Horror, Altered Carbon, the British sense of humour and endurance...


020 Funny Man

Back by unpopular demand, the team are joined once more by special guest Dr Dean of the mighty Pit Ponies! This episode, they watch Simon Sprackling’s 1994 British Horror “Funny Man”; in which Christopher Lee advertises for Persil, and a sort of Northern Jester version of Freddy Krueger kills, amongst others, Velma from Scooby-Doo. The gang discuss the pros and cons of trying to make a low budget horror film in Britain in the 90s, the Jeremy Brett Sherlock Holmes TV adaption (again!),...

The Black Cat

We hope you enjoyed Episode 19 “Tales of Terror” - as promised; we’re bringing you 3 Bonus Episodes of the original Edgar Allan Poe Stories that were adapted for the film.

Horror - On - Sea

Oh we do like to be beside the seaside! The Welcome To Horror Team brave potential hypothermia by taking the Horrormobile to Southend in January, and attend Day 2 of the Horror-On-Sea Film Festival! Apologies re-sound quality as we recorded Gonzo-Style between films! Such a great day, an excellent mixture of shorts and features, all reviewed in this bonus episode.

019 Tales Of Terror

It’s a full hit of classic Horror on this bumper episode of Welcome To Horror.

With 3 stories in one film, will this be all too much for him? Listen in and find out. Watch (or re-watch) to avoid spoilers, and join us.

Happy New Year to all our listeners! We kick off 2018 with a look at Chapter 1 of Andy Muschietti’s adaptation of Stephen King’s “It”. The gang take the Horrormobile to Derry, Maine, famous for it’s random balloons and hungry storm drains. We float down to the Barrens and discuss quite how shitty childhood can be in a small town. Along the way they mention the recent revival of The League of Gentlemen, the true horror of Olaf’s FROZEN Adventure and that notorious bit from the book they...


Xmas Bonus 3 View From The Hill

In the final of our Christmas Bonus Episodes, we turn to the BBC’s 2005 adaptation of M.R. James’ “A View From A Hill”. As well as the film, the convoluted conversation mentions nuclear thriller “Threads”, while Lee tells us in no uncertain terms why he doesn’t watch Torture Porn. Full disclosure: the gang are pretty wasted at this point, they’ve been drinking since noon; a heady mixture including Port, Craft Beers and Lee’s homemade “Krampus” cider, so this may be a little “relaxed”. But...

Welcome To Horror Christmas Bonus Episode 2 “Whistle And I’ll Come To You” is available now on the Podcast App/iTunes Store, Soundcloud and at welcometohorror.com It’s the second of our Bonus Christmas Episodes, and we take the Horrormobile to the coast for some light archeology/grave robbing in Jonathan Miller’s 1968 adaption of M.R. James’ “Whistle And I’ll Come To You”. The booze is flowing, and Chris’s memory of Whitley Strieber is severely affected. Fortunately he can remember...


Xmas Bonus 1 Crooked House

In the first of our Christmas Bonus Episodes, the gang take the Horrormobile to Geap Manor for an anthology from the mind of Mr Mark Gatiss, 2008’s BBC Ghost Story for Christmas “Crooked House”. The gang discuss Gatiss’ career, from “Doctor Who” to “Sherlock” by way of “The League of Gentleman” and “A History of Horror” with an almost sickening level of obsession.

It’s the 2nd in our season of 5 Christmas Episodes, and this time we’re watching Jalmari Helander’s “Rare Exports”. Having opened their traditional Halloween crackers, the gang take the Horrormobile over to Finland’s Korvatunturi mountains for their first foreign language film. Staying in Krampus territory, the guys ponder the finer points of explosion radiuses and just how much old man cock is too much old man cock, particularly for a Christmas film? Along the way they report on what great...

015 Thankskilling

In honour of the Thanksgiving celebrations, the gang take the Horrormobile to the little town of Crawberg and experience their lowest budget so far! They settle down to dinner with a suspiciously short and feathery man with a moustache and glasses, and discuss the true comic insanity of “ThanksKilling”, without doubt the finest Killer Turkey/revenge/slasher film that we have ever seen! Around the dinner table, the conversation is lively, as Chris admits to his brush with the law, and the...


014 Critters

To combat accusations of nepotism when Chris’ sister/Lee’s wife; Lady Jennifer, was our special guest last episode, this time we’re joined by Lee’s brother; Dr Dean - Pit Pony and founder of the Lin Shay Appreciation Society.

013 Ghostwatch

Lee, Chris and Adam are joined by special guest Lady Jennifer as they conclude their 3 episode Halloween season for October. The gang sit down and relive that Halloween Night 25 years ago, when the BBC decided to scare the absolute living shit out of viewers across the UK. They mourn the passing of Mike Smith, address accusations of on-air farting, and definitely don’t laugh about the phrase “Glory Hole”. Watch (or re-watch) to avoid spoilers, and join us
