The whole gang takes a look at a late Hammer Horror offering - one that was an attempt to breath some life into the quickly dying studio. The film in question is "Captain Kronos - Vampire Hunter" (1974); a film that's not your usual Hammer production. Is it different enough? Is it any good? How does it compare to previous Hammer vampire films? Did Paul once hit on Caroline Munro in real life? Is this really just a test run for "Highlander II: The Quickening"? All this, as well as listener comments are covered.

This episode Lee has two separate conversations with Daniel and Paul about Amando de Ossorio's "The Loreley's Grasp" (1973). Is it just a cheesy monster film with bad effects? Is it a sex comedy? Is it a masterful blend of those two genres, along with German mythology? Or is it just a big mess? What's up with the hero's tight pants? Why is Billy Connolly in this? All of this and more, including a listener comment, is covered.

Featured Music: A clip from the score by Antón García Abril & "The Lorelei" by Jack Jones.

The whole crews is on board to cover Jess Franco's adaptation of Bram Stoker's "Dracula" in 1970's "Count Dracula". How close is it to the source material? Are there any lesbian sex scenes in it? Can a giant boulder kill a horse? Christoper Lee with a mustache? All of this and more, as well as what the host's have watched as of late.
