“What could it be,” you ask?
Just a little show from the 80s called Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace! Never heard of it? I’m surprised…I mean, you must have read one or two of Garth’s novels…look over on the bookshelf…nestled between James Joyce and Stephen King…surely THE TITAN OF TERROR resides between these other literary giants!
NO? What the fuck, man?! Oh, not “a reader”…That’s cool. Well, lucky for you The One Man Fear Factory made a television show and Channel 4 has finally decided to release DARKPLACE…the show that was considered “too subversive, too dangerous, too damn scary” to be aired! Not only do you get the first 6 episodes but also present day interviews with Garth and the rest of the cast!
Here’s a very brief description of DARKPLACE from the wiki:
“The series’…premise is that…in the 1980s, best-selling horror author Garth Marenghi and his publisher/publicist, Dean Learner, made their own…television series with a single intent: “to change the evolutionary course of Man over a series of half-hour episodes.” Set in Darkplace Hospital, “over the very gates of Hell,” in Romford, East London, Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace shows the adventures of Dr. Rick Dagless, M.D., as he fights the forces of darkness while simultaneously coping with the pressures of working in a modern hospital.”
If you’re a fan of KOLCHAK: THE NIGHT STALKER, WEREWOLF, and SWAMP THING then you owe it to yourself to at least check out the first episode…I’ve made it easy for you:
