Dracula is back! What do we think of Dracula 4 (3 if you don't include the one without Dracula)? Do we like its dynamic priests, double dose of innkeeper and enough head injuries to go round? Listen to the episode to find out. Let us know what you think via: Facebook: search A Very British Horror Twitter: @verybrithorror Email: averybritishhorror@g…
 
"MIND THE DOORS!" Death Line (1972), the most requested film for us to cover, finally comes to A Very British Horror. We venture underground to London's tube network to seek out some cannibals. Along the way we discuss whether this is really a lost episode of The Sweeney, the geography of the London Underground system, Marlon Brando and Paul educat…
 
Nature or nurture? Would watching Jack the Ripper, your father, killing your mother make you a violent psycho? Why do I have Hot Chocolate's "It Started With A Kiss" in my head? Join us as we fail to answer any of these questions when we discuss the 1971 Hammer film Hands of the Ripper. Contact us at any of these places: Twitter: @verybrithorror Fa…
 
It's still Christmas in the A Very British Horror household. We're going to a friend's new country pad to have a very over indulgent Christmas dinner. What could possibly go wrong? Really looking forward to a lovely glass of Burgundy wine. Hope it doesn't taste like blood! Come eat with us as we enjoy the first episode of the 1972 BBC spooky anthol…
 
SEASONS GREETINGS ONE AND ALL. Love him or hate him, you can't argue that Mark Gatiss has delivered 3 Ghost Stories for Christmas, two M R James adaptations and one original. Tractate Middoth, The Dead Room & Martin's Close. We go through these one by one and give our views on them. Are they any good? We also name drop a lot of people in an effort …
 
Werewolves from outer space have decided to Attack the Block! We talk about the film that launched the careers of big name Doctor Who and Star Wars actors. And Star Trek too. Nearly. We also mention (friend of the podcast) Nick Frost, which causes Chris to lament his lack of stardom after our Truth Seekers interview episode. As usual we can be cont…
 
We check out author / Dream weaver Garth Marenghi's Darkplace and as looking at it from a horror perspective alone would be very odd we drafted in one track lover, editor of comedy website Comedy To Watch and all round Rick Dagless super guy, Mr Alex Finch to help with our comedy (we need it!!!) As usual you can contact us via: Facebook: www.facebo…
 
Welcome to our very exciting, special episode. We interview Nick Frost and Samson Kayo about their new Amazon Prime Video show, Truth Seekers, which launches on October 30th, 2020. It is really rather excellent and fans of British horror and weirdness will enjoy it, we think. If you want to know more about us and what we do you can follow us on Fac…
 
We visit a house on a hill thats haunted. No not that one. Or that one. Its the Legend of Hell House. Returning to the classic British horror era for the first time in our current run was eye-opening. It's just a shame Chris's decaf coffee wasn't. Hopefully he'll remember to load up on the strong stuff before the next episode... You can contact us …
 
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 ac…

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…
 
Join us for our first proper episode during the lockdown as the we discuss the 1999 Tim Burton horror Sleepy Hollow. Is it really British? Is Johnny Depp any good ? And is this the film that resurects Christopher Lee's career? All these questions and more will be answered in this very episode. Listen now before you lose your head! (It was obviously…
 
We're back and in lockdown for our Lockdown Special. I say special but its really mostly Chris talking, whilst Paul agrees every now and then, about what we've watched or read in the last few weeks. The special bit is that we've worked out how to record over the internet so expect more episodes very soon. As ususal you can contact us via the follow…
 
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 a…
 
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 i…
 
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. Do get in contact with us via: Twitter: @verybrithorror Facebook: www.facebook.com/AVeryBritishHorror Email: averybritishhorror@gmail.com.…

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 i…
 
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. You can play along at home too! Find us on Facebook: AVeryBritishHorror Twiiter: @verybrithorror Email: aver…
 
Its February! In 2017! Wheres all the time gone? In AVBH land its still christmas as we talk about the play that kickstarted the whole Ghost Story for Christmas thing off, Whistle and I'll Come to You.

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 lis…
 
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 …
 
The game is afoot! (or should that be a paw) We discuss Hammer's version of Hound of the Baskervilles. Is it horror? Or just an excuse for us to get all Holmesian? Find out in this episode. If you want to join in the discussion, find us in these places. Facebook: AVeryBritishHorror Twitter: @verybrithorror Email: averybritishhorror@gmail.com Do cha…
 
We've a very special episode for you. We review a film that has neverbeen seen until NOW! We talk about the lost 1938 film "Tower of Fear" starring Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi which we were privileged to see at a restricted private viewing. If you like the sound of the film then and want to see it released in the near future do let us know via fa…
 
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 t…
 
We're back after a long absence. In true British horror tradition, Chris's creaky old mansion burnt down. Everyone was ok and we've risen from the grave again to look at our emergency Netflix film, the 1965 Amicus "classic" The Skull. As usual, we love feedback and you can talk to us via Facebook where we're AVeryBritishHorror. Please give us a lik…
 
Its 2016 so we thought we'd try something a bit different for this episode. We're going back to the 1980's and we're eagerly awaiting the rattle of the letter box as the local paperboy puts the first issue of Scream! comic through the door. A UK comic in the anthology tradition of Eagle or 2000AD with a horror theme, Scream! ran for 15 weekly issue…

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…
