Rank #3: EP 50 Tales From The Crypt

Podcast cover
Read more

Its our 50th episode and to celebrate we're off to explore some local tombs. We're not sure why but maybe that robed thespian might be able to tell us. He seems to be be chatting away to that woman from Dynasty, Robin Hood, the bloke from the 1st series of the Avengers that wasn't Steed and two other blokes. I'msure approaching him will be a good idea. 

So join us we hear some Tales from the Crypt.

Rank #6: EP 21 Dead Of Night - Return Flight

Podcast cover
Read more
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?

Rank #7: EP 12 Horror Express

Podcast cover
Read more
The presence of a murderous energy monster from the dawn of time would do little more than liven up the average morning commute between Redhill and London Bridge. However, when you're Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee you travel first class and you don't expect to have to fight for your lives. Their 1971 complaint to the Railway Ombudsman is still unresolved.

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.

Ave Satani! Join us as we celebrate the birth of the Anti-christ and find out the relationship he has with ice cream.
The curse of the Omen has fallen on the sound quality a bit as there is a bit of noise in about a third of the way in. Hopefully it won't spoil things too much. Obviously the Devil didn't want this podcast to go out.

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.

Rank #14: Ep 52 Dracula Prince of Darkness

Podcast cover
Read more

Like the film we talk about in this episode, WE'RE BACK after a gap of 8 years.

Christopher Lee is also back in the role that made him famous, Dracula Prince of Darkness. Lets see what he has to say after all the time away. 

Will Peter Cushing be back or will they give his role to kick ass monk?

Come with us to Castle Dracula!

Quick note about the audio: the room we normally record in has been redecorated and has lost some of the soft furnishings. Therefore the audio is slightly echoey.

Legendary ghost story writer MR James was finally brought to the big screen in 1957 with Jacques Tourneur's Night of the Demon. Based on Casting the Runes, which, somewhat oddly, is not a ghost story. The perfect A Very British Horror subject matter.

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:

The original theme music is back this episode but did you like the my selection of comedy music in the previous ones? Let us know.

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.
