Haunted Double Feature (Ghostwatch/The Stone Tape) DVD

| DVD

Two BBC classic films brought to you in one box set! GhostwatchThe BBC broadcast Ghostwatch on the 31st of October 1992. It seemed to be a live broadcast which was a cross between Crimewatch and the movie Poltergeist. Although pure fiction the masterly combination of great scripting intuitive direction and perfect casting made the supernatural pastiche appear frighteningly real. Despite being part of BBC Drama's Screen One series the presence of Michael Parkinson convinced thousands of people it was real. The drama caused uproar and was banned from repeat transmission... for over a decade. Its legacy lives on cited as an inspiration for The Blair Witch Project and Derren Brown's The Séance Ghostwatch is regarded as a classic of the genre. The Stone TapeNigel Kneal's classic ghost story The Stone Tape first broadcast by the BBC in 1972 represents his best work outside of the Quatermas series. A team of scientists eager to discover a new recording medium take over a brooding gothic mansion. On moving in however they find one key room unfinished and the builders refusing to work there. Claims of strange noises and feelings of unease are dismissed. However the scientists soon discover that the renovation work has disturbed something behind the stone walls something ancient and malevolent. [show more]

Double bill of made-for-TV supernatural dramas. In 'The Stone Tape' (1972), when scientists working for Ryan Electrics move into their new headquarters, a gothic mansion, they find one room unfinished. Strange noises are heard and the builders are too frightened to complete their work. When the other scientists dismiss such fears as irrational whimsy, only psychically-minded Jill (Jane Asher) senses the dark secret that lurks beneath the building. 'Ghostwatch' (1992) is a fully-scripted drama which imitated the format of a live television broadcast taking place inside a haunted house. The hoax is made all the more convincing thanks to its use of well-known TV presenters Michael Parkinson, Sarah Greene and Mike Smith.
