Welcome back to another episode of Chronicle Podcast (An Almanac of Old World Horrors), this is season 1 episode 5.

This is a podcast dedicated to discussing European Horror Cinema only and is the brainchild of podcaster Duncan McLeish (The Podcast Under the Stairs). Each season will run for 6 episodes and drop every two weeks with season 1 looking exclusively at European Horror Cinema through its Vampires.

With an emphasis on giving you an insight into some of the weird and wonderful stories behind the movies, we continues our journey with The Reflecting Skin (1990). Roger Ebert said of Philip Ridley’s The Reflecting Skin that it was like David Lynch’s Blue Velvet but better and after its premier at Cannes critics declared it the next big cult movie…I wager most of you have never heard of it and its something I desperately want you all to watch.

Chronicle Podcast was researched, written, recorded and produced by me for you!!

Join me next time to look at Let the Right One In (2008).
