  2. If the Mirror AND the Express both rate it it MUST be good! Hauntology: the bringer togetherer.

  3. All hail the British 1970s Earth Mysteries! Never thought it got its fair share of coverage really; aside from 'Quatermass' and 'Children of the Stones' it seems to have been ignored, on celluoid anyway.

    Also, isn't there a big stone causing all the fuss and bother in 'The Changes'?

  6. I hadn't heard of these, shall have to check them out, thanks. Now I remember that standing stones and their associated mysteries feature in 'Psychomania' (1973) and 'Night of the Demon' (1957), but there doesn't seem to be a serious non-fiction look at the Earth Mysteries subject made in the hallowed 1970s.
