Review of 'Gormenghast'

gormenghast.jpg A DVD transfer of the recent BBC mini-series. This is an adaptation of the Mervyn Peake fantasy stories from the mid-20th century. A very gothic look with fantastic effects, a number of memorable performances (Spike Jones as the headmaster is truly incredible!). With a cast of many famous british actors this is very well done.
