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