Behind the facade of London's shiny dockside developments, its designer boutiques and coffee bars lie forgotten dark corners and darker secrets. It's a city where anything can happen and being young and pretty won't always save you. This cult smash hit follows scary stories and chilling episodes, from vampire documentaries to alien-infested supermarkets, from teenage necromancy to ghostly East End gangsters. In Urban Gothic, you'll find thirteen tales of the city to chill the blood. Written by

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 »

I accidentally raised a damn necromancer from the dead, and he thought it'd be fun to kill us, bring us back and make us his slaves. Didn't work out; teen spirit and all that.

It's almost impossible to describe the beauty of Urban Gothic to those strange individuals that are not attracted to the most wonderful genre we know as horror. Sure sometimes the desperate need to fit in a last twist before the final credits leaves an audience just a tad confused but its worth it for the rare feeling of freshness that the series in general delivers.
Some of the more note worthy episodes include Pineapple Chunks, Be Movie, Seratoin Wild, in fact all of them in one way or another manage to accomplish more than Hollywood has in the past 30 years.
Maybe I'm biased but if you ever get the chance WATCH THEM ALL. The naff ones are always balanced out so stick with it and i guarantee you'll be rewarded. Unless of course you're not into horror then i suggest you watch a nice Hugh Grant movie although to me that would be Terrifying.
it's all good Z
