History of Horror

Anyone who missed last week’s first episode of the History of Horror would do well to check out the next instalment of this brilliant show with Mark Gatiss tonight. Like Mark I lived for and lapped up all the fantastic Hammer movies that I possibly shouldn’t have stayed up for during the 70.s when young and impressionable. So it is no surprise that I still love this genre for all its sleaze, campness and unadulterated gore today. Aside for the fact that most original ideas have been executed brilliantly a number of times and the ones that are left are often no more than just exploitation or titillation, this is definitely still a great show to watch!
