GARTH MARENGHI'S DARKPLACE DVD
TVRecordings.com is proud to announce that the wait for the most famous 'lost' project in horror is finally over. Garth Marenghi's masterpiece 'Darkplace' is finally released on October 16th. A signing session will be taking place at Virgin Megastore (1 Piccadilly Circus, formerly Tower Records) on the same day from 6pm, where you can get your DVD signed by Garth Marenghi, Dean Learner, and Todd Rivers!
Garth Marenghi's Darkplace was originally filmed in the 1980s and has since earned a cult reputation as one of the most terrifying and radical television programmes ever made. Despite this, none of the episodes were seen for over 20 years (although the show enjoyed a brief run in Peru). Darkplace returned in 2004 for its first UK screening, carefully restored and re-mastered by Marenghi himself, along with technical help from Learner and his one-time brother-in-law. Even now, Garth warns that the show, an effort to "radicalise men's minds," may prove "too subversive, too dangerous, too damn scary."
The DVD is packed with over four hours of extras, including: commentaries on all episodes by Marenghi, Learner and Rivers; Marenghi's original storyboards penned on the back of a breakfast napkin and shown alongside the final scene; a vast photo gallery; further interviews with Marenghi, Learner and Rivers; an extended 12" version of Todd Rivers' classic One Track Lover; original radio advertisements; backstage footage shot by Marenghi's wife, Pam; and other previously unseen material. The DVD also includes an exclusive souvenir brochure.
