Dogsbody

Could “Make Mine Mink” contain another clue, or set of clues, in the on-going saga of the Cinema of Darkness? Did Dogsbody, who is believed to have owned a Standard 8, manage to insert it into this film in some ten scenes.

We know that Dogsbody lived in a mansion block in Hammersmith, we know that he was in the film industry, and we believe that numbers of young women went missing in towns where British feature films were being made and where, in all probability, Dogsbody was on the film crew.

We know that no murder enquiries were ever launched, that no crime scenes were ever identified and that no bodies were ever found. Missing persons files were opened, but nothing more.

Who was Dogsbody and which property, I hear you ask. Look at the Cinema of Darkness and maybe you can help us find more clues to this cinematographic mystery.  Or maybe you'd like to invest in the production of the film, or even adopt it as a media project in one or more educational establishments, or possibly take the script and act as an agent.

Let us know.

Review Blogging – The Big Picture


Would you like some free tickets/DVD to view the latest film? Studios send these out all the time to accredited reviewers.
Or perhaps you prefer the more classic products of the older studios, often being re-released and digitally improved. They too want publicity and have less cash to spend on promotion. But many will happily send out a review copy of a disc free for you to review.
In return can you write a review of the film in 500 words or less? We can help you here with some suggestions. Email us.
You can use ReelStreets as a springboard to journalistic stardom, by becoming an associate editor.
Can you formulate a letter to the publicity department of the film studio?
Can't write an email? We can send you a template. Ask them for location photos for adding to the site, and your blog.
Use our 1300 films, 33,000 stills, 4 million monthly hits and 400,000 page views each month to attract film companies to participate in and benefit from our huge success.

Informal Meeting/Get Together

Last Friday's meeting was, as always, enjoyable and we were pleased to have some of our contributors join us. Thanks to those that made the effort, it was great to put faces to names and to thank them personally for their important contributions. Unfortunately, Simon arrived a little late and some people had departed but in his favour was that he was the only one with a camera! He recorded the event with these two photo's, fortunately for us, his NOW shots for the Website are always in focus!
