Season 15 Episode 6: The Meaty Torso of Frankenstein, Frankenstein Part 2

Welcome back Cromrades! When last we met, we saw the twisted fruits of Victor Frankenstein's machinations spring to horrible, terrible life! Now, tune in to hear about how the Monster spends his first months on Earth. He takes a bit of a gap year, learns a new language, a little about living, and a lot about love. It's that last bit that spurs him to speak with his creator once more, for he has a request...

The Monster in his hiding place, Bernie Wrightson

Season 15, Episode 2: Bram Stoker's Dracula Pt. 2



Welcome back to our castle, Cromrades! Enter freely, and leave something of the happiness you bring! This week, we bring you a discussion of the middle section of Dracula by Bram Stoker, covering the events of chapters 9 through 18. Lucy is attacked by unseen forces in the night, eventually succumbs to the darkness calling her, and the formation of a party to take the battle to Dracula. This part of the book has some chilling scenes, particularly the assault on Lucy, and Lucy's transformation. And, it sets the stage for the final act of the novel.
