EP 43 Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires

We’re back, finally! And this episode we’re both Kung Fu fighting with Hammer’s odd mix of gothic vampire horror and kung-fu, Legend of the Seven Golden Vampires. Chris also manages to explain how the continuity of all of Hammer’s Dracula films works. In the episode we mention a narrated soundtrack LP that was available at the time and here it is in in all its glory on youtube.

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.

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.

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 22 The Bride

Those poor brave fools Chris and Paul take on their toughest mission yet: All one hour and fifty-five minutes of The Bride, Sting’s doomed attempt to replace Peter Cushing. A misunderstood classic or is every critic right?

EP 21 Dead Of Night - Return Flight

We take a look at one of the least known episodes of the 1970’s BBC series Dead of Night, Return Flight. Neither of us had seen it and best of all it was written by Robert Holmes and we may have indulged our inner Doctor Who fan a bit too much. So is there a real ghost in this story at all or is it just imagined? Let us know what you think by emailing us on or comment on our Facebook page or tweet us...
