Shown on Channel 5 in the UK over a decade ago, one of the most brave and bold series commisioned and unfairly largely forgotten now.
I am currently making my way through the second series in the box set, which can be found at a quality cheap price.
An anthology series, individual one of horror tales, in urban areas, London or thereabouts. Yes, some of the episodes work some do not quite succeed well, but good efforts are made. The budget seemed to be fairly low mostly, but they should be admired for attempting to create a good level of horror and scares to match many films around.
Featuring some actors well known such as, at the end of series one RICHARD O’BRIEN, and more now presently established since working on the series like ASHLEY WALTERS and SEAN MAGUIRE.
The tales vary from the urban creepy corpse finders, voodoo tales, hospital monsters, vampire documentary to less convincing almost comedy horror satire. When it does work, it really can be genuinely entertaining and respectable horror.
I see that there are even rumours that Channel 5 just might actually be planning to produce a new third series this year. True or not, fans of British, modern, short horror entertainment should view these modern classic tales of URBAN GOTHIC.
