For this episode, we take a look at one of the most famous films out of the Hammer Horror studio – Horror of Dracula! We decided to watch the movie because Sir Christopher Lee was in Hugo and this film is one of his breakout roles. We explore his career as well as that of Peter Cushing. For some reason, we spend a long time talking about The Hound of the Baskervilles.
Our next film is, somewhat predictably, Dracula!
