The Mummy and Bravo from Firestone Walker Brewing

Cheers! In honor of Universal’s new movie “The Mummy,” which is supposedly kicking off a new Dark Universe of Universal monster movie reboots, we are watching 1932’s “The Mummy,” starring Boris Karloff, and 1959’s “The Mummy,” starring Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing.

We’ve paired our “Mummy” double feature with an aged beer – do you see what we did there? It’s Bravo, an imperial brown ale aged in oak bourbon barrels, from Firestone Walker.

The Haunting, Curse of the Cat People and Firestone Walker’s Helldorado

We realize that Halloween is over, but we think scary movies can be enjoyed all year long.

In this podcast we are talking about 1963’s “The Haunting,” (not the horrible 1999 remake), and 1944’s “The Curse Of The Cat People,” and drinking Helldorado by Firestone Walker. Both movies are directed by Robert Wise, whose filmography is all over the map, including the original “Star Trek” movie, “The Sound of Music” and “West Side Story.”

This podcast is kind of a sequel to our very first podcast, in which we discussed the original “Cat People” from 1942. Have our feelings changed about “Cat People” in the past year? You’ll have to listen to find out.

If you’re an iTunes person, you can find us riiight here. And if you like what you are hearing, then leave a review in the iTunes store. We’d do it for you if you had a podcast.
