“Silence! Am I not El Supremo, the direct descendant of Jose Quintero? And was not Jose Quintero the Almighty’s right hand when Cortez carried his word to the Mexican heathens? In interrupting me, you are interrupting God!” You never know when you or someone you’re with might want to signal someone by lighting a match.

The captain, crew, and passengers of an old freighter – all with dark secrets to keep – find themselves adrift in a mysterious land full of monsters, conquistadors, and killer seaweed.

A bit of a Hammer oddity, The Lost Continent (1968), directed by Michael Carreras, is a blast! Richard Klemensen, publisher/editor of Little Shoppe of Horrors: The Journal of Classic British Horror Films, and the voice you hear in the commentary track of the Scream Factory Blu-ray of this film, joins the Classic Era Grue Crew for this one. Bill Mulligan, co-host of DoH 70s and DoH 80s will also make the cross-DoH jump. Now we’re talking fun! The composite crew covers everything from seaweed to monsters to El Supremo to balloons, including Dana Gillespie. 

Please excuse the technical issues we struggled with, but after rescheduling twice, we decided to forge ahead, We hope you have as much fun viewing/listening as we had recording!

At the time of this writing, The Lost Continent is available on physical media as a standard Blu-ray format disc from Scream Factory.

Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror: The Classic Era records a new episode every two weeks. Up next in their very flexible schedule, as chosen by Daphne, is I Vampiri (1957, Lust of the Vampire), directed by Riccardo Freda and Mario Bava. Bill Mulligan from Decades of Horror 1970s and 1980s will join us because, well… Bava!

Please let them know how they’re doing! They want to hear from you – the coolest, grooviest fans: leave them a message or leave a comment on the Gruesome Magazine YouTube channel, the site, or email the Decades of Horror: The Classic Era podcast hosts at feedback@gruesomemagazine.com

To each of you from each of them, “Thank you so much for watching and listening!”

Jeff lives smack dab in the middle of the cornfields of Iowa and is a long-time horror fan. His first remembered encounters with the genre were The Wizard of Oz, Tarzan gorilla chases, and watching the first broadcast of The Twilight Zone episode, "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge." While he now qualifies as an old fart, he strives to be an Old Boy. Paraphrasing Robert Bloch, he has the heart of a small boy. He keeps it in a jar on his desk.

Jeff has written for Horrornews.net and SQ Horror Magazine. He currently writes for Gruesome Magazine and is a co-host of the Decades of Horror podcasts - The Classic Era, 1970s, and 1980s - and the Gruesome Magazine Podcast.
