Trivia

Boyo's severed head in the episode "Eater" was produced by first taking a cast of actor Glyn Morgan's own features and then reproducing this in wax. This was then worked on sculpturally to create the torn flesh look of the neck. The wax copy was then molded in fiberglass giving a negative mold from which a skin of silicone was then produced. This skin was then painted using reference photos of Glyn. Eyes for the head were hand-painted to match Glyn's from photographs of his eyes and inserted into the silicone head. The final step was the hair. To make the hair look as if it is growing from the head each hair has to be inserted into the silicone skin with a special needle one by one. The process took almost three days. Even the eyebrows and eyelashes had to be inserted individually to complete the effect. See more »

Thrash Metal Horror
17 August 2004 | by (England) – See all my reviews

I really like Urban Gothic in a number of ways.

It's wildly uneven and you never know what you're going to get. Half the episodes are boring, predictable or just plain funny (see the episode called 'pineapple chunks' and you'll understand.) The other half are brilliant, unusual and original.

It's violent and doesn't pretend it has a moral reason to be that way. The fact is that gut wrenching violence can sometimes shock and horrify. We're not talking 'video nasty' proportions here, but you'll wince at some of the scenes. Because of this capacity for violence and its cheapness, you're always on the edge, wondering if something horrible is about to happen. This is no sanitised hollywood production and it's all the better for it. It feels grubby - the title sequence really demonstrates what the show is about.

This is really cheap on DVD - I managed to get series one for about 9 quid.

I'm off to order series 2!
