Wibbell Studios news about HMV and Blockbuster

This entry was posted in News by Cleave on

While checking the mail today I can across the long overdue newsletter from Wibbell. Their words, not mine. While it was great to see them getting the newsletter out I was saddened to see the state of DVD rentals and sales over in the UK. HMV and Blockbuster are going to be closing due to lost sales due to people buying DVDs and Blu-Rays on the internet. I can see how this would hurt many of the indie film makers and here is what the newsletter had to say on the subject. By the way, the newsletter is here in its entirety by permission from Allin Kempthorne (Pictured to the left) who wrote and directed Vampires Of Bloody Island.

The Color of Magic

This fun, fantastical story set on the flat planet of Discworld is like none other. The most unlikely of characters meet up in very unusual ways. We have a tourist from a land based on science and technology, Twoflower (Sean Astin), and a washed-up wizardry student, Rincewind (David Jason) from Ankh-Morpork’s Unseen University of Wizardry who has been cursed by a very evil and dangerous spellbook called the Octavo. Add in an overly-ambitious wizard, Trymon (Tim Curry) looking to kill his way to the top, and some other legendary characters borrowed from other stories and given a new sort of life on Discworld, and you have over three hours of great adventure put together in such a great way, you really don’t want the journey of Twoflower and Rincewind to end.

The Borrowers (1997)

This entry was posted in Adventure, DVD, Videos & Movies, Family, Fantasy by Snowfoxx on

This 1990s family film did not get much push or press, but it is one great movie. Based on the The Borrowers books by Mary Norton, the movie has a very warm 1930s UK look to it, even though the main family of “beings” are American. The Lenders live in a nice suburban house in some city we never learn the name of, which was left to them by Joe Lender’s (Aden Gillett) great aunt. They share the house with a family of Borrowers. Pod (Jim Broadbent), Homily (Celia Imrie), Arrietty (Flora Newbigin), and Peagreen (Tom Felton) Clock are people whom are are about four inches tall, have curly red hair, and “borrow” things from the Lenders to make their tiny lives a bit easier.

The Vampires of Bloody Island (2009)

This entry was posted in Comedy, DVD, Videos & Movies, Horror by Snowfoxx on

I went into this new cult classic movie knowing it would be campy. Low budget and British, but after watching Dr. Who for decades before the reboot of the series, I sort of got used to that set up. While BBC and ITV are now giving many of their series bigger budgets to work with, Wibbell Productions took this old formulae and made a pretty decent comedy horror movie about a vampiric noblewoman living on the remote Bloody Island, off the coast of Cornwall that wishes to see the sun again after living in darkness for four hundred years. Morticia de’Ath (Pamela Kempthorne) has a plan to bring someone to Bloody Island that will make this wish come true. This person is the bumbling, clumsy Susan Swallows (Pamela Kempthorne), a sales representative for a soft drinks company. Wibbell soft drinks has had a slump in sales, and Susan is about ready to be fired for all the stupid mistakes she has made. In a test to keep her job, the boss sends to Cornwall to sell of a few cases of some garlic-flavoured soda. Maybe this is why Wibbell sales have slumped. Their flavours are just nasty, but not as nasty as the monsters and undead that live on Bloody Island.
