As a Christmas treat in the late 1960s and 70s, the BBC produced adaptations of ghost stories based on the works of MR James, the Cambridge academic and author of some of the most spine-tingling tales in the English language, which were broadcast to terrified viewers in the dead of winter. This was a tradition that was briefly revived by the BBC between 2007 and 2010. These adaptations, which have a subtlety and style all of their own, have been a major influence on many contemporary British horror filmmakers and have come to be some of the most sought after British TV titles of all time by their legions of eager fans.

Emerging at the peak of the giallo boom of the early 70s, Luciano Ercoli s Death Walks films are two superlative examples of the genre linked by their shared casting of the stunning Nieves Navarro (billed under her adopted stage name of Susan Scott) as the lead woman in peril. In Death Walks on High Heels (1971), exotic dancer Nicole (Navarro), the daughter of a murdered jewel thief, finds herself terrorised by a black-clad assailant determined on procuring her father s stolen gems. Fleeing Paris and her knife-wielding pursuer, Nicole arrives in London only to discover that death stalks her at every corner. Returning in Death Walks at Midnight (1972), Navarro stars as Valentina a model who, in the midst of a drug-fuelled photoshoot, witnesses a brutal murder in the apartment opposite hers. But when it becomes clear that the savage slaying she describes relates to a crime that took place six months earlier, the police are at a loss - forcing Valentina to solve the mystery alone. Offering up all the glamour, perversity and narrative twists and turns that are typical of the giallo genre at its best, Luciano Ercoli s Death Walks on High Heels and Death Walks at Midnight anticipate the super-stylized trappings of Brian De Palma s early psycho thrillers (most notably, Dressed to Kill).

The action takes place in seventeenth-century Venice over the course of one day. The chief characters are Volpone a rich libertine and conman and Mosca his self-seeking servant. They cause chaos with an audacious fraud designed to part the city's wealthiest from their fortunes.

Theatre on DVD - the new way to enjoy stage plays and bring set texts to life! The Duchess of Malfi is a popular choice as a set text despite (or perhaps because of) the violence and horror of its later scenes. Generally considered to be the masterpiece of Jacobean playwright John Webster it was first produced in around 1613. It's a macabre tragedy based on actual events and tends to be loved or hated by critics - while consistently captivating audiences across the centuries. Set in Italy in the early fifteenth century it starts out as a love story with the Duchess marrying beneath her class. However her two brothers one cool and corrupt the other violent and warped have other ideas. With incredible plot twists along the way the play ends as an utter tragedy as the brothers take revenge on her destroying themselves in the process.
