Being Human Series 2

Touchpaper TV's drama about a werewolf (Russell Tovey), a vampire (Aidan Turner) and a ghost (Lenora Critchlow) flat-sharing in Bristol has been a huge hit for BBC3 winning many awards including Best New Programme at the 2010 Broadcast awards.

The second series continues where series 1 left off and is a darker and more sinister affair, whilst still retaining the trademark humour from series 1.

A third series starts shooting in June 2010

Evil Aliens

Jaw-dropping late night lunacy comes courtesy of director Jake West's manic follow-up to Razor Blade Smile.

This is a hilarious horror genre blender about a disreputable cable television team investigating a wild alien abduction story involving intergalactic impregnation on a remote farming island off the Welsh coast. Even if the UFO story isn't true the program makers intend to fake it - until they too face the Predator-like space creatures full on for a bloody close encounter.

 

Being Human Series 1

Being Human is BBC3's witty, exciting and extraordinary look at the friendship between three twenty-something outsiders, a werewolf, a vampire and a ghost, trying to find their way in an enticing yet complicated world.

It mixes the mythic with the commonplace, the farcical with the horrific, and the domestic with the epic.

Razor Blade Smile

Visually dazzling and loaded with sex, blood, and macabre humor, Razor Blade Smile uses an array of cinematic techniques to achieve the slick look of a glossy comic book, reminiscent of many Asian efforts in the genre, and quite unlike anything to come out of Britain in recent memory. ~ Robert Firsching, All Movie Guide 

Cult director Jake's West's first feature was arguably the lowest budget British movie ever to receive a theatrical release back in 1997.
