Chronicle Season Two: Episode 5 – The Witches


Welcome back to another episode of Chronicle Podcast (An Almanac of Old World Horrors), this is season 2 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 2 looking exclusively at European Horror Cinema through its Witches.

With an emphasis on giving you an insight into some of the weird and wonderful stories behind the movies, we continue this new seasons journey with The Witches (1990). Nicolas Roeg was know for his disjointed narratives, arthouse filming style and his overtly sexual themes in his movies so he was clearly the obvious choice to direct an adaptation of this Roald Dahl classic kids novel. The end result is one of the scariest kids movies ever made.

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

Join me next time on the season finale to look at Witching & Bitching (2013).
