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 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. Useful if you can’t be bothered to watch the whole film as its only about 45 minutes...


EP 38 Gods and Monsters

WE’RE BACK! After a summer away we’re reanimated back to life! This episode we look at one of the earliest Brit directors of horror films, James Whale, director of Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein. We watch the film Gods and Monsters, a fictionalised account of Whale’s final weeks. Whale was an interesting chap as you’ll find out when you listen to the episode.

EP 34a Tower of Fear Confession.

A short podcast saying gotcha, April fool! Big thanks to Ramsey Campbell for being such a good sport. Do check out his books, and like him on facebook & follow him on Twiiter.


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 5 The Ghoul

Paul and Chris take an in-depth look at the very first British Horror talkie. Boris Karloff came back to Blighty in 1933 to take the title role. Was it worth the effort?


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 24 A Tribute to Christopher Lee

Not much to say. Here’s our tribute to the great man.


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 averybritishhorror@gmail.com or comment on our Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/averybritishhorror or tweet us...


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 averybritishhorror@gmail.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 16 The Gorgon

Its scary mythological Greek monsters week! Its the film that started the craze, Hammer’s The Gorgon. Hopefully you won’t be too petrified! (see what I did there) Or should that be gorgonised.


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.
