After our in depth review of the funky horror movie "The Beast Within" we now throw ourselves into the deeper themes suggested by the movie. Looking at all sorts of stuff including: species dysphoria, clinical lycanthropy, Therians, otherkins, furries and (who'd of thunk it?) Christianity.

Finally I've been able to replace my broken laptop and can get back to audio editing...which can mean only one thing: more flicks that church forgot! Tonight, we look a 1982 big budget B-movie that manages to be both grim and hilarious, "The Beast Within".

And if you want to delve even deeper into the themes of the movie, then be sure to check out the second part of the podcast, where I'll be throwing history, theology, psychoanalysis and a dash of clinical lycanthropy into a discussion of human beings and their fear and fascination with change.

It's not just Edward Lionheart who has his critics, we do too. But what effect can rejection have on the human pysche? And how do we deal with those who criticise us: decapitate them and plonk their head on a bottle of milk? Or are there more nuanced responses? All this and more in part two of Theatre of Blood - Dealing With Rejection.

Episode 93: Frankenstein Part 3: God Complex? Homosexual Allegory? Or Something Else?

Theories on what the Frankenstein story 'means' are everywhere. In this episode I explore two. First up it's the controversy the film and book caused amongst Christians as they felt it was an affront to God. And I also look into the often discussed idea that films like Bride of Frankenstein are really just allegory's exploring homosexuality.

Part three in a four part exploration of the Frankenstein Myth.

Fire up the Tesla coils! It's time to revisit a horror icon that to be frank with you, I've found kind of boring up until recently. But when I recently re-discovered these two Universal classics it reminded me of the horror and heartbreak of Frankenstein.

Oh, it's fun watching all these spooky ghost stories and creepy movies about hauntings but there's one fundamental question that creeps behind it all: do ghosts actually exist?
