Rehearsals are now underway for our new show at this year's London Horror Festival. Joining Roy and Lorrimer for their investigations will be a host of characters, some familiar, some brand new.


Matthew Woodcock and Peter Davis will once more be on hand as Roy Steel and Lorrimer Chesterfield as well as writing the script. 'It's a single story this time.' Matthew says. 'It gives us a chance to develop the plot and characters more. Roy and Lorrimer are at the theatre to try and uncover the truth about a mysterious haunting. There's murder, ghosts and as many bad jokes as we could fit in.' The play is set entirely within the confines of the Wyngarde Theatre in Soho, the worst theatre in town. 'This is a theatre of last chances, and everyone has good reason to be there.'


Joining the Monster Hunters will be Simon Kane, reprising his role as Sir Maxwell House as well as playing drunken actor Sebastian Winsley-Hope. Sebastian is a faded actor and his last film role nearly killed his career.... Simon on the other hand has just finished recording series 2 of John Finnemore's Souvenir Programme, described as 'the best sketch show in years' by the Radio Times.


We are also pleased to see the return of Andrea Cullum, who will be playing Vivian Caruso, a diva-ish actress with multiple roles in both horror films and Crossroads. Her star might have fallen, but she rules the theatre with an iron tongue. Andrea will be familiar to podcast listeners as the voice of Lillith, leader of the cult of Hazal in The Hour of the Witch.


Laura Marshall is another familiar voice for podcast listeners, having played multiple roles across five of the six episodes. Her character Alice appears to be an ingenue acteress, but as with all those drawn to the theatre of Hell, are her motives as innocent as they appear?


Actor and comedian Neil Frost plays ambitious director Vivian St. John. He needs this play to be a success, but how far will he go? Neil's web comedy series HIStory HERstory is available to view on YouTube.


The Monster Hunters at the Theatre of Hell is on at the Etcetera Theatre, Camden from 16th - 18th October. For more information and tickets, please visit the London Horror Festival Website.

The Monster Hunters podcast returns this Halloween with a brand new episode.


Following on from the cliffhanger at the end of episode 6, Taste the Scars of Orloff sees Roy and Lorrimer face the might of their vampiric nemesis Count Orloff once again.


'Anyone who's ever seen a Hammer Dracula film must have realised that staking Orloff wouldn't be the end of him.' co-writer Matthew Woodcock said of Count Orloff, who first appeared in episode one, The Discotheque of Nights. 'It was pretty explicit that we were always going to bring him back. It was just a question of how.'


Count Orloff's diabolical plan must remain a secret for now, but we'll be revealing more information about our Halloween special very soon!

The last episode of the current series of The Monster Hunters is here. A tale whose raw power will change the way you see life, and more importantly yourself, forever. Guaranteed, or your money back*


Roy Steel is heading to Karnstadt, but what waits for him in this rural idyll? A beach? Girls? Or terror? Terror via the medium of pain?


Lorrimer Chesterfield is left alone, with only Sir Maxwell House for company. Are his fears for Roy's safety valid, or is he just jealous because he's not been sent on a smart holiday?


Together, our heroes are an indomitable force, protecting the country from the creatures of the night. But alone, will they be able to prevent a terrible man from crushing them like those little cups you get in car showrooms?


Find out just what are the powers of Lord Greg in The Powers of Lord Greg, available to download from iTunes or right here on themonsterhunters.com!


Written by and starring Peter Davis and Matthew Woodcock, with Laura Marshall as Tanya and Simon Dylan-Kane as Sir Maxwell House
