Trivia

The head-shots in Dollhouse Burns 1 & 2 were an effect that was originally conceived for Saving Private Ryan. A tiny pyrotechnic is attached to a specially machined aluminum plate that sits on the actors forehead. This is then hidden underneath a prosthetic appliance made from gelatin. The prosthetic has a hole already cut out where the bullet hit will be which is then disguised with a soft wax material that now makes the forehead look natural. A blood tube and firing lines for the pyrotechnic are hidden in the performer's hair and then on cue the charge is detonated. Although only weak the tiny charge easily punches a hole in the wax and blood begins to flow. 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!
