Devil's Chimney: Chalvington Barnes #1 by Tin Larrick

His portrayal of Beachy Head and Eastbourne is very good. Description of buildings and setting is very good. The plot is good too. Description and pace are excellent. Characterisation is good.

However, what propels his hero into quick promotion is the capture of a burglar 'at the scene' so stopping a crime wave in its tracks. Surely all burglars are serial burglars. it's what they do to make money. maybe it would take quite a few arrests to get yourself noticed in an organisation specially built for doing just that?

That apart, the action sequences are very strongly written, conversation is there to propel the plot, and para 2 excepted, its pretty gritty and real.

if you can get past the poor B production quality this movie is worth the watch. In some ways it is like a silent as all the plot moves in filmed sequence not talk... and its easy to see where ideas used in films like 'Rebel Without a Cause' or 'Night of the Living Dead' came from, though this is not a teen movie nor a zombie fest.

Best advice - It is unsettling rather than scary and the talk sequences don't work. Don't buy it full price as a cult film, but do buy it at a remaindered price then you wont be disappointed.
The Collected Works of Bram Stoker: 32 Novels and &hellip by Bram Stoker
4.0 out of 5 stars Dracula etc, 22 May 2012
This collection of tales represents incredible value for money. One tends to forget just how good novels like this are compared to modern offerings. When these works were written the ideas were new and must have had a shuddering affect on readers. Making collections like this available means that lesser known works dont get totally forgotten about. Even the more clunky stories have something to offer.
