BAFTA winning three-part series The Green Man makes its DVD debut on 5th October 2015, courtesy of Simply Media, and we’ve two copies to give away!

British acting great Albert Finney stars as a slimy hotel owner in The Green Man, a gripping ghostly BBC Two mini series from 1990, which comes to DVD courtesy of Simply Media.

Maurice Allington (FinneySkyfall, The Gathering Storm) is the promiscuous and alcoholic owner of a quaint British bed-and-breakfast hotel, the Green Man Inn. In the hope of attracting customers, when he’s not trying to seduce them, Allington keeps his guests entertained with tales of ghosts and spirits haunting his hotel, spreading rumours that the ghost of a notorious 17th century occult scientist haunts it. But he and his guests are in for a shock when they realise that the hotel is possessed by some very real and malevolent other-worldly spirits.

BatWhilst I love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, nothing can beat a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. I don't do 3D movies so put the red and green spex away!
