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!!

Where Witchfinder General marked a move away from the campy over the top theatrics of Hammer Horror & Amicus Productions for a darker more sadistic feel, Mark of the Devil raised the bar of shock to audiences who didn’t know whether or not they themselves were ready for it.

  • Chronicle #6 – Let the Right One In (2008) -   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 conclude our vampiric journey with Let the Right One In (2008). Just as the vampire genre looked to be consumed with latex clad comic book styled ultra vixens and the beginning of a franchise where the vampires sparkled in the daylight, Sweden turned there hand to this much maligned sub-genre. The result would be unanimously recognised as one of the most beautifully haunting tales in cinematic vampire lore. Chronicle Podcast was researched, written, recorded and produced by me for you!! Thanks you for all the support and love this season, we shall return for season 2 in the Summer of 2016.

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.

With an emphasis on giving you an insight into some of the weird and wonderful stories behind the movies, we continues our journey with Count Dracula (1970). A movie billed as one of the most faithful adaptations to the Stoker source material from one of Europe’s most sleazy exploitation directors? Throw into the mix Christopher Lee as the Count in one of the few occasions he dawned the cloak and fangs outside Hammer Horror Studios, Klaus Kinski as Renfield & Herbert Lom as Van Helsing…have I got your attention yet?

Italy came out the second World War after a length period of facist rule in which horror movies were prohibited. Within 20 years of the end of the war a reluctant director making his debut feature would change the landscape of Italian cinema and birth almost 30 years of Italian horror dominance in Europe.

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?
