Sorry Doc (and Doc, actually) - IATW is the association of tie-in writers mentioned in the piece. They admit franchise writers as well. I cited them as a proof that although I can't see who actually buys these tie-ins (although some do obviously sell - I was pleasantly surprised by that) I am by no means against them. Blame the obfuscation on an afternoon on the Baileys...
That's deffo not in the fillum version of Bloodbath. I really want to see Morons again. It's been years etc. Worth it for the spaceship crashing on the motorway and Dinsdale Lansden's officious line "Have that woman shot, will you?" (i.e. just about all I can remember of it) The ...er...pop concert at the end was a step too far, though.
Given K. Everett's calamitously ill-judged "Let's Bomb Russia"/ "Let's kick Michael Foot's stick away" turn at the Young C*nserv*t***'s conference shortly before the film's release (read all about it HERE), perhaps this was an attempt at winning back those he'd disappointed.
"They turned without a glance between them. Almost as if by some pre-arranged, coordinated and ritualised agreement that could only have been programmed into them by their demonic creator and which was more terrifying than a Conservative Party Conference, they unanimously turned their eyes towards Headstone Manor ..."
Don't know if scriptwriters Ray Cameron & Barry Cryer were aware of it, but there is a real Headstone Manor, which now serves as the Harrow Museum & Heritage Centre. Was there this time last year consulting the newspaper archive.
Anyway, haven't read it yet, but guess this qualifies as Sci-horror?
John Whitman - Planet Of The Apes (Puffin, 2001)
Blurb: Captain Leo Davidson has crash-landed on a planet ruled by apes. Luckily, he's joined up with humans resisting ape domination. But can he escape from this bizarre world? Or should he risk staying long enough to help the other humans stuck there?
JOIN THE HUMAN RESISTANCE!
From the first, I set myself against "literature"; the story was the thing, and no amount of style could persuade me to select a story that lacked genuine, unadulterated horror. For those who wanted something high-brow there was plenty.
