Talk Without Rhythm Podcast

Join El Goro, part-time luchador and full-time cinephile, as he delves into the broad grassy spaces and massed granite tarns of cinema. Each episode, El Goro discusses two movies tied together by some kind of theme. Action, sci-fi, horror, high-brow, low-brow: it's all fair game.

This week on the Talk Without Rhythm Podcast I'm taking a look at two films that represent the Horror legacy of Marvel Comics!

Okay...so only one of them is actually an officially licensed Marvel adaptation, but I've already covered the Blade films and I'll be damned if I'm going to watch Man-Thing again (shudder).

Anyway, this week I'm discussing 1980's Tomb of Dracula (aka Dracula: Sovereign of the Damned) and 1992's Doctor Mordrid.
