Lee/Cushing, Howard/Dan #5: Horror Express (1972)

In Howard and Dan’s first ‘new’ recording (actually recorded in September) on a Lee/Cushing film since 2017, the duo are joined by uber-fan Tim Shaw to discuss an often-overlooked gem in the canon, 1972’s Spanish period genre mash-up co-starring Telly Savalas, Horror Express. Somehow they manage to talk about the film for two hours without mentioning the brilliant editor Robert Dearberg, but apart from that, it’s fairly in-depth!

Stella also drops in with present-day Dan to discuss the state of coronavirus Britain, horror highlights streaming in the UK, and her favourite fact about Christopher Lee.
