In todays Tigon box set news, there is no Tigon box set news. I went for a pint and watched Charley Says DVD when I got in.

Stonesy wrote:PPS, there is also a little interview with Jeremy Dyson and Mark Gattis from the set of the film Gattis has got one of his film costumes on. This is also good as it tells you how much they 'just nicked' off Blood on Satans Claw. It is quite a bit. I haven't seen BoSC since I was about twelve so didn't click on untill I saw it again.
Also, if you see Mark Gattis tell him the Tyne Tees horror film spot was called Fear on Friday not Appointment with Fear. I'm sure he'll love to know that.
How freaky does Mark look dressed up as Sir Nick S-L talking completely normally?

The commentary is ace. Very very funny indeed. All films should have a commentary by the League!

Anyone know where Steve Pemberton was??

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.
