Product Description

Product Description

A sequel to the earlier PROBE mystery 'The Devil of Winterbourne'. Liz Shaw becomes convinced that the devil has returned when the body of its last victim disappears and a book of black magic spells goes missing from a local museum. She turns to the school's ex-headmaster (Peter Davison) for help. This tape includes the second part of 'Stranger Than Fiction', the behind-the-scenes look at BBC drama videos.

From the Back Cover

Academy Award winners Sean Connery (Best Supporting Actor, The Untouchables, 1987) and Nicholas Cage (Best Actor, Leaving Las Vegas 1995) star in this action-adventure blockbuster that critics are hailing as the drop-dead thrill ride of the year....The Rock! Millions of lives hang in the balance after a military madman (Ed Harris, Apollo 13) seizes control of the island prison Alcatraz and threatens to launch deadly poison gas missles at San Fransisco. With time ticking away, a chemical weapons expert (Cage) and a cunning federal prisoner (Connery), who happens to be the only man to have broken out of Alcatraz, must now break in and disarm the missles! From the hot film making team that brought you Crimson Tide and Bad Boys, THE ROCK delivers hard-hitting action and suspence you'll never forget.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent continuation...in no way a let-down!! 29 July 2001
Format:VHS Tape
The second instalment in a two-part story, "Ghosts of Winterbourne" further describes the events in the lives of Andrew Powell and co., particularly how the student falls victim to the horrific charms of Isaac Gretorex in human form. With all the intensity and unpredictability of Mark Gatiss' previous effort, "Devil of Winterbourne", "Ghosts" is by no means a let-down, and no characteristics are evident of "sequel syndrome", in which half of the film is taken up describing the events of the previous movie. With the only new characters taking up minor roles (the new school chums of Andrew Powell), the interaction between the principle actors loses none of the magic or power evident in "Devil". Noticeable is the absence of Georgie (Gatiss' own character), who had the important role in the first movie of unravelling the mystery of the stomach-turning murders of both humans and animals taking place within the grounds of the Winterbourne school. The eccentricity and perhaps somewhat clichéd (but nonetheless effective) role of unsung hero provided by Georgie has not been replaced in "Ghosts". Despite this, Gatiss has successfully introduced a more niched sub-plot in the form of the Latin chants and spells necessary to exorcise Isaac Gretorex from the host-body of the possessed Christian. The added dimension of mystery and fear of the unknown successfully mixes with more everyday use of "horror" to provide the viewer with the desired sense of simultaneous morbid fascination and repulsion of the events that so seamlessly unfold on the screen.
