Q-Station-Promo

For our final podcast installment on the Hammer Horror Dracula franchise, we thought that we’d give you, the listeners, a special treat and thanks to the management at Q Station in Manly, we were able to bring you the podcast, recorded live from grounds.

So we have set up this page slightly differently to previous posts. Below, you can choose to navigate in several ways, although we recommend that you do listen in chronological order. Essentially we talk about both films, (The Satanic Rites of Dracula and The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires) in 2 parts per film.

Additionally, we have also recorded our thoughts and reactions as we navigated our way through the Quarantine Station complex and its various haunted spots, ably guided by our Q Station host, Jake. Needless to say, we got a lot more than we bargained for as we experienced an extremely active night.

Click on the audio links below if you dare and let us know your thoughts on either the movies or the events that took place.

Our final instalment of the Dracula franchise sees Hammer team up with the Shaw Brothers with a blend of          kung fu and horror. Van Helsing returns played once more by the amiable Peter Cushing and despite Dracula returning to the scene, Christopher Lee this time does not don the cape. Instead the role is taken up by John Forbes Robertson. Does he measure up and what are the views of the podcasters?
