4.0 out of 5 stars Good old, ever reliable, Abel, 4 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Go Go Tales (DVD)
Good old Abel Ferrara, his films are never the easiest to watch and no
easier to review. Always worth watching, however, and this little
number had completely passed me by before I picked up an Italian DVD,
with an English audio track fortunately. A failing strip/lap dance
joint a lost lottery ticket and owners threatening to foreclose. Sounds
a little uninspiring but the Ferrara is not interested in some glossy,
happy go lucky enterprise and what we get here is a very well shot,
edited and filmed impression of more behind the scenes than anything
else. Most of the guys are aged, bossy and freeloading as the ship goes
down while all the nubile ladies give it their all, because that's what
they do. Asia Argento is very impressive, as is the ever dependable
William Dafoe in the lead. Roy Dotrice was a nice surprise and even Bob
Hoskins is fine. Sylvia Miles, who I haven't seen since Paul
Morrissey's Heat, is a little over the top but just about does the job.
More than a little echo here of Cassavetes' Killing of a Chinese
Bookie, but nothing wrong with that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Always a pleasure, 2 Mar. 2016

This review is from: Bones - Season 7 [DVD] (DVD)
I think the reason I have stayed with this series so long is its good mix. Many an episode finishes with me lost as to what was solved but somehow its the process thats fun not the 'who done it' element.

The Complete Book of Dowsing and Divining
The Complete Book of Dowsing and Divining
by Peter Underwood
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars The fascinating world of dowsing and divining, 18 Nov. 2015
Curious investigation into the fascinating world of dowsing and divining. Written in a lucid and readable style, it is a comprehensive volume on dowsing and divining - from the twig and pendulum, to motorscopes and bare hands. It traces the story of these enigmatic phenomena from its origins in the world of fairy tales and mythology to recent theories that the enigma can be explained in terms of present-day psychology.

5.0 out of 5 stars Further reflections upon 'the most haunted house in the world', 18 Nov. 2015
This review is from: Borley Postscript (Paperback)
Of interest to anyone who has read his seminal The Ghosts of Borley: Annals of the Haunted Rectory, which this volume is a follow-up to. It offers further reflections upon 'the most haunted house in the world' (and includes the successful lecture "A Pictorial History of the Borley Haunting" that Underwood toured with.


Haunted Farnham
Haunted Farnham
by Peter Underwood
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Spooky' Farnham ..., 17 Nov. 2015
This review is from: Haunted Farnham (Paperback)
Peter resided for many years just outside of Farnham in Bentley (with the Borley Rectory bell serving as the front door bell to his house).

It is fitting then that he should be the author of Haunted Farnham, a book that uncovers the uncanny aspects of the history that pervades the place.Illustrated with black and white photographic images, it serves as an ideal guide to anyone visiting or living nearabouts.
