Julian Richards' Darklands Finally Released on UK DVD

Following its release in North America last year, director Julian Richards' debut horror feature, Darklands, is finally now available on DVD in the UK as well courtesy of Metrodome Distribution. Check out its impressive new cover art.

From the Press Release:

Starring Craig Fairbrass (Cliffhanger), Jon Finch (Frenzy), and Rowena King (Wild Saragossa Sea), Darklands is frequently compared to Robin Hardy’s 1970’s cult classic The Wicker Man, but the writer/director also acknowledges a debt to Roman Polanski’s Rosemary's Baby.

Darklands, which won the Melies D’Argent for Best European Fantasy Film in 1997, launched the directing career of Julian Richards, who went on to helm Silent Cry, The Last Horror Movie, Summer Scars, and Shiver, whilst producer Paul Brooks produced Shadow of the Vampire, White Noise, and Haunting in Connecticut.

"Darklands was the first British film to combine horror with social realism, a genre watershed which paved

New Darklands Clip Reveals an Ancient Pagan Ritual

Back in September we learned that Darklands, the debut feature of director Julian Richards (The Last Horror Movie), will finally be released on November 20th; and a new clip from the occult shocker has arrived!

Richland says the clip was inspired by a pagan ritual he attended in Scotland whilst researching the screenplay. The event, known as The Beltane Fire, takes place in Edinburgh on April 30th, which is an important date in the pagan calender celebrating the coming of spring.

"Rituals such as Beltane (Walpurgis Night) and Samhain (Halloween) are based around the seasons and celebrate the success or failure of the harvest," explains Richards. "Records suggest that in the event of a bad harvest human sacrifices were made, but some historians believe this to be a myth propagated by Roman imperialists to portray themselves as a civilizing force."

Darklands presents a contemporary spin on these themes by setting the story in South Wales,

Episode Recap: Lie To Me - 2.11: Beat the Devil

  • TVStar
Dr. Cal Lightman's (Tim Roth) talent is reading people's facial expressions and body language. He's the human "lie detector," and according to him, his process is flawless. But this week, when his former mentor Helen Dezkis (Rowena King) calls him in to do a lecture for her students, Lightman meets Martin Walker (Jason Dohring) and sees that his flawless process might just have a few cracks. Well, at least when it comes to reading psychopaths.

The main draw of this show is Tim Roth’s impeccable portrayal of the grating, egotistical Dr. Lightman, and I am very

We welcomed back Lie to Me (TV) with Cal Lightman (Tim Roth) giving a lecture for his former mentor's university class, only to meet a student, Martin (Jason Dohring), who beats him at his own game of deception detecting.

Cal’s mentor, Helen (Rowena King), helps them set a trap for her student (and lover) -- which ends up in a dangerous chess game for Cal and Martin.
