The Gorgon (1964) + The Reptile (1966)

This episode discusses two gorgeous, Gothic Hammer Horror classics: The Gorgon (1964) and The Reptile (1966).

Writer Kat Ellinger joins us to dive deep into where these films sit in the Hammer canon, the special effects, Gothic settings, why female monsters always need to be tortured, and what is it about snake-women.
