Episode Twenty Seven: The Man Who Could Cheat Death (1959)

We begin a month of horror films with one out of the catalogue of Hammer horror films. This particular film stars Anton Diffring (standing in for Peter Cushing, who turned down the roll not long before the start of filming) as a very youthful 104 year old who has discovered the secret to everlasting life (although as it turns out, it has a flaw or two). Also featured in the film is Hammer horror staple and all around cool gentleman Christopher Lee, who plays an uncharacteristically dull good guy. Where does it rank in the catalogue of Hammer films? You will have to listen to find out.
