Nolan is joined by Paul Farrell — as well as special guest Daniel Epler from the Cobwebs podcast — to discuss Terence Fisher’s The Curse Of Frankenstein (1957) and Jimmy Sangster’s The Horror Of Frankenstein (1970). The crew digs into new discoveries, rewatches, and recent releases — including a review of Simon McQuoid’s Mortal Kombat (2021) — before trying to make life out of nothing at all (besides some spare parts from the nearby graveyard).
Other movies discussed on this episode: Jakob’s Wife (2021) (VOD), They Live By Night (1949) (HBO Max), Event Horizon (1997) (VOD), The Picture Of Dorian Gray (1945) (VOD), Shadow In The Cloud (2021) (Hulu), The Empty Man (2020) (VOD), Mortal Kombat (2021) (HBO Max).
As will always be the case with this show, be aware that our discussion contains spoilers. If you want to watch the movies before listening to the show, there are a couple of ways you can do so. The Curse Of Frankenstein and The Horror Of Frankenstein are both available to rent via video-on-demand, as well as being available for purchase on Blu-ray or DVD.
