BEST BRITISH HORROR 2014 REVIEWED IN THE GUARDIAN

BEST BRITISH HORROR 2014 gets a good review in THE GUARDIAN. And on the note of the interests of the few being served at the expense of the many, and right unto the end game, I'm chuffed with the shout-out for my DOLL HANDS too.
 
"The volume, never less than entertaining, contains good work by Gary Fry, Tanith Lee, Reggie Oliver and Mark Morris. Standouts are Adam Nevill's "Doll Hands", a disturbing post-apocalyptic nightmare in which the privileged feast on the underclass; "Dad Dancing" by Kate Farrell, a quietly convincing account of the revenge taken by the sons of a millionaire father; and "The Arse-Licker" by the king of the gross-out, Stephen Volk, whose account of the comeuppance of the eponymous character ventures well beyond bad taste."
 

RECOMMENDATION: HOUSE OF CARDS SERIES 1

Responsible for a week of late nights in the Nevill household. And what an absorbing portrayal of the Satanic in our times. Uncomfortable truths reached through fiction. Made me even more tired of the fact that, as a species, we're always at the mercy of greedy, self-interested devils. And yet, like Michael Douglas's character in WALL STREET, Frank and Claire Underwood will probably come to be seen as role models.

HANNIBAL SERIES 2

Finished series 2 and remain a big fan. And this is probably the first TV series I've watched and repeatedly thought, how did this get made? It is a carnival of such raw horrors and taboo, the fetish-erotic and the grotesque, but always intelligent and perversely elegant. I love to see the envelope pushed a bit.
