“Yes? Can I help you? Lost you say? And in the middle of Transylvania and in such a terrible storm! Of course you may come in. This is Castle 101 Films. Warm yourselves by the fire. I will prepare some food. No, no, no, it is quite alright, my Masters will insist that you stay for their dinner… I mean dinner. Where are they? It is still early for my Masters, they work at night. I must say sir your wife is very beautiful, she reminds me of one of the master’s previous lady friends. He will wish to… meet her. Where are you going? No stay, I insist. You must stay, STAY FOREVER HAHAHAHAHAHAH.”
It’s the 101 Films You Should Have Seen Halloween Special Podcast! Lewis and Ian clamber out of their coffins to watch the 1958 Hammer Horror version of Dracula. Gasp as they discuss the terrible accents, shiver as The Young Ones comes up, whimper when they end up talking about Pancake Day, tut when one of Ian’s Ex-Girlfriends makes an appearance and, most terrifyingly of all, cry when they look at the differences between book and film. Plus, you want to hear some cheesy sound effects? Then boy you’re in for a treat.
