Perhaps he doesn't like Blood on Satan's Claw.

maybe he was at home making sure that naughty wee blonde girls don't come in the house and eat their porridge??? hehe

Yeah - seems weird without Steve. Or maybe he had an acting job and needs to pay the rent.

Although not really HORROR in the usual sense, the Quay Brothers stop-action films are quite disturbing, unwatchable to some, no doubt, quite chilling, works of considerable genius, imo.

Nooo! How could you say that? He wouldn't have joined in with all those Appointment With Fear evenings if he didn't like the films...

I agree with Sefi, I'm guessing he had an acting job. Although Mark and Jeremy are the real horror officianados in the academic sense, Reece and Steve are still keen on the genre.

Reece is more than i bit keen i think - he is certainly up with jez and mark if his study with the posters as seen in the Amicus doc and "shrines to Peter Cushing/Christopher Lee/Vincent Price" as a boy are anything to go by etc.

Pemberton's the wrong side of the penines to get Tyne Tees, I think, though. Incidentally, I'm wondering if you have to have seen Blood on Satan's Claw to get a lot of the commentary. You might miss 'the men from the bedlam will come' because they are laughing over it and stuff.
Well?

You definitely definitely have to have watched the film properly before watching the commentary. I totally agree!

They talk about the plot all the way through and spoil bits so if you haven't seen it, it would be garbled.

Yeah. I just wanted to say 'the men from the bedlam will come'. Also 'The Villain!! No cakes for him!'.

There's a few Hammer soundtrack available. Have a look at your local record shop. I got The Vampire Lovers for a fiver. Blood on Satan's Claw mustn't be available as its one of the things discussed in the commentary. It is top horror soundtrack music though. And you've got the Wicker Man soundtrack already if I remember rightly.

I shall also have a ganders in record shops. Funny they haven't done a classic horror compilation cos i think it would sell.

I found these that look quite good :

The commentary is BRILLLIANT!!! Topics of dicussion include:

- Mr Kipling.
- The Devil as a voice-over artist.
- crucified crows
- Frank Spencer as a "predigious lover"
- titties or as JEremy Dyson(the star of the show) says "teeeteees"
- Anthony Hopkins
- "3 clicks"
- Pipistrelle Bats
- Dr Who as always ...
- "Would you kill a child?", frozen nazi s and other films

So funny - and the film is cool too. Well recommended to any horror and League fans - a must for fans of both.

I also had the Usborne Book of Ghosts and hauntings as mentioned by Reece so i know exactly what it means about the devil's footprints in Devon:
http://www.mysteriousbritain.co.uk/fort ... _foot.html

"PUT SOME OINTMENT ON IT!!" (see Astrid, i knew it was a Mongoose and not a stoat)
http://www.resologist.net/ryook005.htm

The vampire at the window mentioned by Mark is maybe this:
http://www.mysteriousbritain.co.uk/legends/croglin.html

There is also a wee documentary with Mark (in full 17th cent character garb) and JEz talking about Tigon films ... excellent.

I watched the film sans commentary with two friends first, before we heard what the Gents had to say. We did the Mr Kipling thing too. My friend disagrees about the Pipastrelle Bats - she says it's another Bat Mark is thinking of! loved all the stuff about David Tattsyrup and the three clicks. All three of them were *so* on form. I totally agree with you that this is an essential DVD for any League fan!

Hey thank you for your rather over whelming feedback for horror movies.

I haven't much of an oppurtunity to go to the big shops of late, but when i was last their i did manage to get hold of The Wicker Man. And i watched it and i thought it was fantastic. It was quite different to what i expected, but it was so unique, eerie and charming, which of course is what its famous for. I got the double dvd with the directors cut and original edition. I watched the directors cut first. "Did i do right?" "You did it beautifully!" I found it incredibly inspiring and quenched my thirst for other english horror movies. Next day at work i drew wicker men in flames all over my papers. I now must go back and look over my next purchase.
