Cabin in the Woods Film Festival (All Hallow’s Lee Edition) – THE CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN

Posted on Oct 2, 2015 by | 4 comments

And we’re back! As promised Angela sit down for All Hallow’s Lee to watch one of Christopher Lee’s earliest roles, and certainly the role that was his breakout performance as he would soon become one of the biggest stars in the horror genre. We are of course talking about 1957’s The Curse of Frankenstein, where Lee plays the famous monster, though a more horrific and grotesque version you would be hard pressed to match.

This is the first hammer film for Angela, a horror studio I had kept on the shelf as I had a pretty good feeling that she’d enjoy these movies, and that kind of ruins the fun of this whole endeavor, I think you’d all agree. That being said Angela quickly picked up on the subtly erotic nature that would come to define the Hammer horror films, though she takes a read on it that you might not expect. Its was a fun watch, and I think its a fun show, though I did have to lecture her after about not whispering so much, hopefully it isn’t too hard to hear.

We’ll be back in a few weeks for our next Cabin in the Woods Film Festival podcast episode, once again for All Hallow’s Lee when we check out an Italian horror film. It should be a lot of fun. Be sure to keep checking Where the Long Tail Ends for more updates related to All Hallow’s Lee, as we have a lot of fun stuff still in store for you.

As always, thanks for listening!

  1. Loved this ep!!

    Film aside (that I adore), you guys were so lovely to listen to, seemed a tad more intimate for some reason.

    You both sounded more relaxed and chilled than the usual CITW… (the “Fabrini method” part was amazing) ..and in my opinion it was a huge benefit.

    If this is the result of you guys/gals doing more films of this period, then I ask for a continued series… Nay demand!!!

    And Matt, if you haven’t yet introduced Angela to Horror Express… For fux sake… Dare I say it?…

    … everything James says behind your back is true!!!

    Thanks to all u guys for the recent output, brilliant stuff.

    Ps.

    Get the site mobile friendly ya big grump!!

    • We tried Horror Express years ago and she made it about 20 minutes. She was pretty bored. We may try it again at some point as I do think she’d like it.

      The Fabbrini Method conversation we’ve had dozens of times. Its what happens when both of your father’s are engineers. Not sure about Angela’s, but mine is definitely on the spectrum.

      • Also should note, the Mobile plugin for the theme I have sucks, it completely throws everything off and makes it incredibly hard to navigate anything. So for the time being I’m going with what I have as it is better than nothing, but it is something I hope to rectify sooner than later.

  2. I can’t believe Matt made the Count Dooku flub. The timeliness seemed too perfect. Count “Christopher Lee” Dooku might’ve saved the turd that is Dracula 3000 though. Looking forward to Whip and the Body, never seen it before.

Would you like to say more?
