Welcome to Hypnogoria, Britian's longest running horror podcast!
Coming to you from the Great Library of Dreams, Mr Jim Moon invites you to take a comfy armchair by the fireside to talk of all things weird and wonderful.
Here we discuss strange cinema and spooky television, explore weird fiction and delve into the mysteries of folklore. Plus we also regularly gather by the fireside to hear readings of some classic tales of the strange and the macabre.
The History of Universal Horror Part XIX
The frights of '44 continue coming thick and fast from Universal! Ape-girl Paula Dupree returns in the Jungle Woman, Kharis walks again in The Mummy's Ghost, Sherlock Holmes is menaced by the Hoxton Creeper while hunting The Pearl of Death, and Boris Karloff goes all mad doctor at the opera, in The Climax!
The History of Universal Horror Part XVIII
1944 would see another bumper crop of fright flicks released by Universal, with the year opening with fresh instalments in their various franchises - a new Inner Sanctum movie Weird Woman, a chilling new adventure for Holmes and Watson in The Scarlet Claw, and the return of one their original horror characters in The Invisible Man's Revenge!
The Terror of Tank Command
In an unscheduled excursion down the dodgier end of Memory Lane, we pay a visit to the 'Orrible 'Ouse of Terrible Old Tat and unearth one of the most disappointing board games of the 1970s - the infamous Tank Command from Ideal!
Catch the Smallest Devil
From the archives of abominable audio we present an eerie tale for the New Year!
Yule Goats & Tomten
In this new chapter of In Search of Santa, we discover the history of Christmas gift-bringers in Scandinavia, from the present day Julemanden, to the more ancient Yule Goat and the Jultomten!
The Treasure of Abbot Thomas
In this episode we have our traditional Christmas commentary, revisiting a classic television adaptation of an MR James tale. Tonight we have reached Christmas 1974, and this year the BBC's A Ghost Story for Christmas was The Treasure of Abbot Thomas, directed by Lawrence Gordon Clark.
Discovered this podcast at Christmas and it’s right up my alley. Jim covers lots of great subjects - I loved the episodes on the Box of Delights, Ghost Watch, Hammer House of Horror and the Children of Green Knowe. There’s loads of good subjects covered, and Jim researches the subjects really well. It’s often really funny as well!
A jewel of a podcast
I am always delighted by Mr Jim Moons offerings. Eclectic and all the better for that as there’s something for everyone. Recently listened to Herne the hunter while under the weather, this past week. Evoked memories of reading the Dark is Rising and watching Robin of Sherwood were very nostalgically comforting. Always well researched and informative never dry. His love of the weird and wonderful shines through.
May it long continue.
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!!!!!
