Filmed in London and on location in New York's Lower East Side, NY-LON follows the troubled romance between a bohemian New York record store clerk, Edie, and London stock broker Michael, after their chance meeting in his city.
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

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 »

But that was us. Repeated offenders of the first and worst. It's not that we were bad. We were just alive. And that would lead to all kinds of everything.

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
