S.2 E.6 - Horror of Dracula (1958) with Robert Reineke
Hey folks, Jim here. We are gathered here today to mourn the loss of Patrick's computer, now in a deep coma. I have used my skills as a part-time fortune teller and medium to contact it in The Great Beyond and can confirm that it may be quite some time before it returns, if it ever does. So we must announce that Tracks of the Damned is on an indefinite hiatus until this matter can be resolved.
However before Squinky The Wonder Laptop had her unfortunate accident, she did do one last noble deed. She recorded the Horror of Dracula (1958) episode of Tracks of the Damned, the horror film commentary track podcast! Lucky you!
On this episode Patrick is joined by Robert Reineke of Still Watching the Skies and Where The Long Tail Ends and in addition to talking about the classic adventure horror film they discuss Hammer studios, the profile of Christopher Lee, and the cultural importance of 1950's cleavage. They assure me the latter is very important indeed.
They also talk about the wide pantheon of Hammer's legendary genre films, and which Dracula movies are the worst. Exciting! Listen hard! It may be your last chance for a while!
