"They worship evil, menace, darkness, death, then travel home on the top deck of the 73 bus."
11 March 2004 | by (Manchester) – See all my reviews

'Spine-Chillers' was a short-lived horror/comedy anthology show that was screened initially on BBC 3 before being shown on late night BBC 1. I remember watching one of the episodes of this series last year. 'Goths' starred Mackenzie Crook (with a truly awful black wig) and somebody I can't recall as a couple of the above mentioned sub-section of society looking for somewhere to live. After numerous rejections they find a place with a full-on Goth landlord Balfus, played with bug-eyed intensity by Mark Heap. He's a bit of a head case, insistent on getting his rent on time and who also has a thing against 'weekenders', those that only dabble in the Goth life-style. After altering the place to their liking (a very funny sequence where the Crook and the other guy paint their new place completely black and then relax with a cup of tea with the milk dyed black) and hold a house-warming they begin to notice weird stuff happening around the house and the landlord is getting particularly insistent on getting his rent.

I've no idea whether this episode was typical of the series though I did enjoy what I watched. Hopefully there will be a another series sometime in the future.
