Welcome back to another episode of Chronicle Podcast (An Almanac of Old World Horrors), this is season 1 episode 2.

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 Vampyr (1932). This movie is now lauded over but at the time of release caused mass walkouts and riots. The stress and pressure of its critical bashing would ultimately see it’s director suffer a nervous breakdown?

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

Join me next time to look at Black Sunday (1960).
