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 long.

After spending ages trying to sort out technical issues, we return with an episode neither of us has prepared for in the slightest. So in desperation Paul finds an online Hammer film quiz and decides to see just how much Chris reallly knows.

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.

Ever wondered what happened to those Nazi chaps? Also what did Jeff from Coupling get up to after he left the series? Find out in this film.
This is a commentary soundtrack and not a usual episode so instead of two guys rambling on, its two guys rambling on longer with pauses.
The film can be found on Netflix.
Let us know if you thought this was a good experiment or not.
