In this special we travel to the crazy and disjointed world of Krull.
Chris and Paul have for many years wanted to discuss fantasy films, a genre they both love. Lockdown has given them the opportunity and for one episode only (unless its really successful) they are becoming A Very British Fantasy.
So get your Glaives ready, gather as many young actors before they get famous and someone with one eye and try to work out whats going on.
(By the way I realise that Bernard Bresslaw has also appeared in Doctor Who, before you all write in)

And please leave us a nice review. Thanks

We delve into the world of late eighties children's horror, Moondial.
Is it a ghost story or a time travel story? Or both? We're not sure.
Join us, creepy masked kids, Jacqueline Pearce and children from 3 different time lines and we get very dizzy spinning on the Moondial.
(Paul's still experimenting with positioning his new mic so is a bit echoey here).
Tony Sands excellent short film Echoes of the Passed can be found on youtube here:

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.

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.

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.
