    The first phase of our history of Universal horror draws to close with the great Horror Hiatus of the 1930s - the strange period of cinema history where Hollywood stopped making horror movies! We examine the causes behind it all, untangle the history of horror censorship, and investigate the alleged ban on horror films in the UK in 1930s!

Books close to my heart, at 50 years old I’m reading them all again with my youngest. Just found this podcast, FF being my first listen - brilliant!!!!!

Thoroughly enjoyable and very well researched

I love listening to Jim’s podcast. He has a depth and breadth of knowledge that I haven’t found in other podcasts. In fact, there isn't another podcast out there quite like this.

The subjects discussed a niche but wide ranging and include topics you know and love as well as topics you don't. Even if I don't know the subject, I will listen as its always eye opening and entertaining.

Thank you and well done Jim. I hope you continue to do this for many years to come.

The Greatest from the great library of dreams

Mr Jim Moon is now unquestionably the stuff of podcasting legend. His knowledge, enthusiasm, inquisitive nature and the sheer delight he takes (and passes on) in the many strange and arcane topics he covers makes this one of the best podcasts out there- there is a reason Hypnogoria has lasted so long with ever increasing audiences.....
