Penda's Fen 

 

Such a brilliant film. Made for British TV in 74. I've really never seen much like it. It was a Play For Today episode that I'm sure made some folks uncomfortable back then. 

A young man whose father is a preacher and has a fairly liberal mother, is a fundamental Christian and is looked at like a stick in the mud by his peers. The area he lives in begins to have an effect on him that challenges and changes his beliefs. 

 

Track this film down. So great! 

 

And no Joyrex, the Dead Zone doesn't count. Pet Sematary does though. Too bad both films are awful.

ah come on, it'

check out PENDA'S FEN while you're at it (not exactly horror, but one of the best things the BBC ever produced imho)

 

Sorry, didn't see this post. Yeah Penda's Fen is incredible. 

 

I also watched and really enjoyed The Field Guide to Evil and loved every film in it cept for the American one, definitely should've been cut. The rest are pretty fucking amazing.

Let's Scare Jessica To Deat - easily in my top 10 films of all time, maybe top 5.

 

 

I just started reading The Ghost Wall but I haven't decided if I like it or not.

Looks more like a young Michael Richards than a young Lincoln, TBH.
