General

IMDb.com Top of the pile but undoubtedly our favourite site is the utterly ubiquitous and almost encylopedic (almost encyclopedic - there are still plenty of gaps to fill). We also love their independent movie section.

BFI - The British Film Institute. Another amazing site that is never out of our favourite lists. Utterly definitive, informative and also releases some amazing DVDs via their own label. Their ever expanding donwload section is a real joy.

Senses Of Cinema. Another absolute favourite of ours. An online journal that includes superb sections on the great directors.

Masters Of Cinema. Classic site with a wealth of information about many directors and their works.


British Film links

Britfilms.com Massive site and one of our very favourites to concentrate on British films.

British Film resource. Excellent site with lost of content including a section on Film On Four.

Another excellent site for information about is British Movies www.britmovie.co.uk/


 

Horror Movie Links

Awaken The Dead

Awaken The Dead Poster

The genre reinvogorating, darkly humourous zombie drama. An independent low budget flick bound to please both die hard zombie horror fans and the wider general audiences who have made succeses of such new wave zombie inspired films like 28 Days Later and Shaun of The Dead. Check out the movie at the movie at the Awaken The Dead official site or its myspace page.

Specialising in the release of older TV series and cult films, they have released such gems as Alan Clarke's Billy The Kid And The Green Baize Vampire, Oliver's Richard III, Budgie, Emmerdale Farm, Crown Court, One Summer, The Owl Service, Michael Bentine's Potty Time and 3 double DVD volumes of 1970s kids TV show Pipkins (our personal fave).

Web Page Designing

A book that I have used to help designing parts of my website is CSS, DHTML & AJAX - Visual Quickstart Guide by Jason Cranford Teague, published by Peachpit Press. Its a very thorough book and well worth a look for those wanting to expand their web design skills. The accompanying website is also very handy too. For more info go to the website www.webbedenvironments.com/css_dhtml_ajax/
