Ep 1.6: Hammer’s Mummy Movies

Welcome to our house at Universal Monsters Cast, where your horror hosts – Gillman Joel, Dr. Shock and Wolfman Josh – regularly brave discussions of many a monstrous thing, with a special focus on the Universal Monsters, both the classic films and the emerging Dark Universe.

Season 1. Episode 6. In this episode we are doing something a little bit different and covering all of the Hammer Films productions of Mummy films. We are joined by special guest RedCapJack who helps us review The Mummy (1959), The Curse of the Mummy’s Tomb (1964), The Mummy’s Shroud (1967) and Blood From The Mummy’s Tomb (1971). Composer/Producer Kagan Breitenbach joins us again for a solo-cast segment about Hammer Films music. You’ll remember that the first four episodes, we discussed all of the news surrounding Universal’s Dark Universe and reviewed the 2017 film The Mummy. In episode five, we began our classic Universal Horror coverage with The Mummy (1932). We’ll come back around to classic Universal Monster movies and the future of the Dark Universe, but for now …
