Ep. 84 — HORROR OF DRACULA (1958)
This week's stroll through Psychotronic summers of old takes us back to 1958 to take a look at Hammer Horror's first Dracula film, HORROR OF DRACULA.
It — along with the previous year's CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN — helped to cement Hammer as a gothic horror powerhouse and made stars out of its lead actors, Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee. In this episode, you'll hear the story of how it all came to be, as well as our thoughts on its lasting legacy.
Part of the discussion is whether or not is should be considered one of the greatest genre films of all time as a member of the Psychotronic Hall of Fame, a decision that, as always, we leave up to our listeners.
We'd love to hear your thoughts! Contact us at any of the social media accounts listed below, or be a part of the show by calling us at (864) 371-9931 and leaving us a voicemail of 3 minutes or less and we'll use it on our next episode!
