This week we continue our
coverage of Fandomfest as we hang out with artist and
friend of the show Epyon5, to discuss
this week's Sofa Theater feature: The Curse of
Frankenstein. Listen as we settle in and examine the
1957 classic that essentially kicked-off the Hammer Horror
And as we pick out our favorite creepy old dude from the wall of old creepy dudes, we also mention... Stranger Things, piling your costume in the lobby, Penny Dreadful, Don't Hug me I'm Scared, in Technicolor, a chili bowl haircut, the red woman, surfing the crimson wave, Star Wars, the Frankenpuppy, it gets chilly, Hook and The Highlander, killing Leonard Bernstein, with too much salt, kids being genuine, Dream On, cultural impact,Van Helsing, a million theories, Universal horror, in blood red, running and jumping like - The Cat, buying a pair of eyes, selling cereal, sets and props, the most famous scientist on the planet, they might have killed a dude, child programming, little too much sex, Rocky Horror Picture Show and wearing your bedroom slippers in space.
Spoiler Alert: Full spoilers for the Hammer movie The Curse of Frankenstein. You have been warned!
"'Cause it wasn't really about Frankenstein killing people, and 'oh my god he's loose'. As much as it was... 'would you stop making Frankenstein!!!'"
