32 Days of Halloween IX, Day 14: The Creeping Flesh!

Creeping Flesh (1973)

First up for tonight, we go to your friends and ours, Mitchell & Webb, for a brief interpretation of Dracula as delivered through their madness. I think I’d like to see David Mitchell be the protagonist in some insane horror movie, pretty much played the way he plays it here. This is from their radio series, That Mitchell & Webb Sound.

And then for the feature film, we go back to 1973 and The Creeping Flesh. We have Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing as brothers, the latter of which has discovered a monstrous skeleton while on an expedition in New Guinea. This skeleton appears to be indicative of corporeal, pure evil…and Cushing’s character tries to find a cure for it. You can surmise by the title that things don’t go as one might hope. The director for this was frequent Hammer helmer, Freddie Francis (The Evil of Frankenstein). Enjoy.
