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 »

Quotes

Milton: 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.

Rough, but with a little polishing it could be beautiful..
22 April 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Urban Gothic is a little rough round the edges but an entertaining show nonetheless. As with all shows of this format, the quality of acting and scripts vary, though in this show's favour it's usually above average. As the series goes on, the shows show marked improvement as the dialogue becomes more natural and far less stilted.

There are germs of good ideas here, though only a few are developed sufficiently enough to raise this beyond the level of 'Hammer House Of Horror' to something approaching the class of 'Ultraviolet'. In particular, episodes such as 'Old Nick' and the astonishing 'Boy's Club' break free of the usual formula to show us that horror and evil aren't just about blood and gore. True horror is corruption of the soul, of the heart, and in these two episodes we get to see a darker side of the City that will linger uncomfortably long after the TV set has been turned off.
