Re: Horror Movie Reviewer Seeks Photos of Episodes

I thought I'd expand on my previous comment. I work for Hampden Plc, who own Hampden House, where almost all the 'old country manor' scenes were shot. I was based there for many years and have a fair bit of knowledge of the place. Feel free to ask me about it. Being Grade I listed it hasn't changed ...

Re: Quatermass and the Pit

I've just re-watched this for the first time since the 1970s, a really good horror, with surprisingly good special effects considering it was made in 1967.

The House in Nightmare Park

I've just re-watched this for the first time in about forty years. A lovely little gothic/Victorian horror starring of all people comedian Frankie Howerd. Surprisingly it's not full of 1970s slapstick and smut. Well worth a look if you haven't seen it.

Re: Twin Faces of Evil Farm - think I've found it.

Well I've been trying to find that farm for years, I spent hours scouring google earth and researching staddle barns in Buckinghamshire, all to no avail. I found out that it is not in fact a staddle barn, its too small and is in fact a game larder, these are mainly found in Scotland, so I surmised H...

Re: Series on the Horror Channel UK - Freeview in November 2

Yet again HHoH is on the FreeView Horror channel, this time last thing on Monday nights, which for me is surreal, I work at the House every Tuesday.

Drone flight over Hampden House

There's a fantastic video of the house from the air here...

Imagine the fun Hammer could have had if drones were around in the 1970s!

Re: Can Anyone Help, it May Not be Hammer

#2 sounds like something from 'The Witches of Eastwick' 1987. Though I vaguely remember an older horror movie where some of the characters have a devils' hoof instead of one foot.

Re: The "Carry on" films...

Carry on Screaming is my favourite, if you took out the comedy it would still be a very good Gothic horror movie.

'Do you mind if I smoke' has got to be one of the best visual gags ever, I so regret I never got to see it first time round at the cinema. The audience reaction must have been fantastic.

Re: Fawlty Towers

The disturbing thing about Fawlty Towers is how true to life it is. My wife used to be a hotel receptionist, the place had both a real life Sibil (different name though) and believe it or not a Manuel. He was the janitor in that hotel, once when nailing down a floorboard (with a six inch nail!) he h...

1970s Childrens Sci-Fi

I've just re-watched 'Children of the Stones' (1976) and it got me thinking, those of us lucky enough to be born in the mid 1960s were really spoiled when it came to Sci-Fi. There were loads of shows written specifically for children that didn't talk down to us or play to the lowest common denominat...
