Outstanding. Refreshing. Ingenious.,
This review is from: Garth Marenghi's Darkplace [DVD]  (DVD)
Awful over dubbing, fashion, continuity errors, miscues, clumsy editing, naff effects, mad script, some now highly noteably cameo's, daft choreography, amazingly self serving, egotistic dialogue, guns, sexual stereotyping, awful camerawork, dated music, inappropriate sound effects, intercut with character interviews.
The program seeks to create a retrospective documentary filmed in the 90's of an 80's sci-fi horror show, canned in truth because it was so awful. The fictional Marenghi's ego is such that he claims to have been too close to the truth and was shut down. His self importance alone is breathtaking with some incredible resulting lines.
Can't have been easy putting together something so deliberately bad but the team did it superbly, I only hope they had a brilliant time in the process.
Won't be to everyone taste but a fantastic 80's parody of a dark, dark sci-fi horror place.
Highly original stuff.
