The book also unearths the stories of the forgotten political actors, from the Gay Liberation Front to the hippie anarchists of the free festival movement. This book is not an academic history but something for the general reader, bringing the decade back to life in all its drama and complexity.

Director Pat Holden delivers a few effective shocks but overcooks the climax.
Marc Lee. This British scary movie is preposterous and cheesy, if occasionally oddly enjoyable. Peter Bradshaw. A film that not even the formidable Gary Lewis can save is a scary thing indeed. Nigel Floyd. The film redeems itself a lot though by its unique setting and very good acting, especially from the younger members of the cast.
Ard Vijn. As a haunted house film, its use of darkened corridors, banging doors and moonlit fields surrounded by trees rustled with sudden gusts of wind, lend the proceedings an authentically creepy ambience. Cleaver Patterson. Nothing particularly surprising or exciting happens, and the straightness with which the subject is treated eventually means everything seizes up. Russell Lewin.
Despite the fact that the scariest thing about this Yorkshire-brewed ghost story are the 70s fashions avocado kitchen and rum and pep, anyone? Amber Wilkinson. Rob Daniel. Soon gives way to silliness, with the poltergeist fiddling with Sally's Buckeroo and Slinky toys. I even bought a region free DVD player so I could see it. Very good. Good acting. Not really but fun to watch and entertaining which is why I watch movies. The seller did state the movie would not ply in some regions.
It is right there in the description. The movie was packaged fine and shipped very timely and well. Thank you. This movie did a great job recreating recorded events in the 's at the Black Monk House. The house was even featured in the t.
Today, the house still has the original 70's furniture. This movie was great and provoked a few "jumps out of my seat" reactions. This particular edition requires a region-free dvd player though. Beware, it's a Region 2 dvd, so you need a region-free dvd player to play this.
Any normal American region 1 player will not play this disc. Anyway, I was able to play it on a cheap region-free dvd player. It wasn't a terrible movie, but it wasn't all that great either. Other than that, it is average to below-average of a horror movie.
Great movie. Worth the buy!! There was no English subtitle or closed captioning on DVD. I was kind of disappointed. Also for our deaf community as well. I was very excited to watch this only to be let down big time because it will not play on any device in our country unless you are able to change the region you live in. Very disapointed will not play in DVD player days not recognized. See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries. This is a British film based on the real and documented events surrounding a family terrorised by Poltergeists in their Yorkshire home.
Don't expect Hollywood-style special effects or shocks, as this is played for realism, rather than horror. However, the setting works well, and the absence of stars in the cast makes it all the more effective. Set in the early s, at a time of industrial disputes and power cuts, 13 year-old Jenny is haunted by the spirits of a young girl, and an evil monk. In , Len and Jenny Maynard Steven Waddington and Kate Ashfield move into a new home in Yorkshire , where their year-old daughter Sally is haunted by the ghost of a young girl and the demonic ghost of a monk.
Sally's history teacher, Mr Price Martin Compston , learns that the family is haunted by the spirit of a young girl who was murdered in a forest, and informs Len. Sally's parents seek out the assistance of a paranormal specialist and a local priest. The specialist is able to make contact with the spirit but during the session, the group is attacked by it, and the specialist is unable to remove the spirits from their house.
He initially refuses, citing lack of permission from the church, but they blackmail him by showing photos of Clifton engaging in an illicit affair with his housekeeper, Mrs Blithe. Clifton agrees and explains that the monk, while alive, preyed on young, uneducated girls in the neighbourhood and cut off their tongues so that they could not expose him.
He killed the young girl in the forest, as she was educated, and could have exposed his deeds by writing about it. After the incident, the monk was secretly tried, hanged, and buried in secrecy, in order to preserve the church's honour. They proceed with the exorcism at Len's house; the spirit violently resists but Clifton manages to drive it out.
The family returns to normal life, but one night, the spirit returns and attacks Sally, attempting to hang her. Len and Jenny try to save her but the spirit knocks them out.Mar 01, · When the Lights Went Out Lyrics: Strange, how we change; / Like water crushes stone / Take each day, suffer this alone / Try to remember, when it all fell down / .
