A History of Horror with Mark Gatiss - BBC4
« on: October 11, 2010, 03:41:38 PM BST GMT »
Documentaries on the history of classic horror movies.  Part 1 on at 9pm tonight, directly followed by The Bride of Frankenstein.  Could be useful for this month's sculptalong, and entertaining in general. :)  Bit weird to watch the preview clips and see a bearded Mark Gatiss talking so seriously and sensibly, though...

Bergil: what'd you think?  I enjoyed it meself (bit disappointed The Wolfman only just got a mention), but Mark seemed drugged, or something, during most of it.

Oh lordie!

I haven't watched one of these episodes  :'(

My mate lent me a load of dvd box sets to watch (listen to) while I sculpt away... I can highly recommend Farscape if you like sci fi high jinks and cowboy bebop for something a bit different. But don't watch stargate universe, that's about as dull as it gets.

I have watched both so far and I must say I have found them very good.

Mark Gatiss being serious takes a bit of getting used too, but once you accept how much he loves the genre it is an interesting series.

I am not sure if I will enjoy the next one though as I have never really been a fan of the Dawn of the Dead / Texas Chainsaw Massacre era of films.
