Halloween: Top five Somerset horror films and videos
SOMERSET has had its fair share of films and TV shows made here. But what about horror?
Including the homemade variety here's our top five Somerset horror films:

1. THE ZOMBIE KING OF SHEPTON MALLET
We don't know which concept is sillier: Edward Furlong agreeing to become Corey Feldman's mischief god's Zombie King or the fact this all happened in Shepton Mallet.
Filmed June last year, the low budget film was a straight to DVD release. We'd love to show you the trailer, with its hard-as-nails zombie-destroying mailman, but it does feature a foul-mouthed milkman.
Filmed at haunted Shapwick House in Glastonbury, Psychosis starred Charisma Carpenter of Buffy the Vampire Slayer fame, Paul Sculfor (Jennifer Aniston’s former boyfriend), who plays her husband, Ricci Harnett, and the Darkness singer Justin Hawkins.
Scream queen Charisma Carpenter plays an American novelist who relocates to rural England to finish her latest book, only to suffer hauntings of a massacre which drive her to the edge of reason.
It went straight to DVD.
The Cranmore-based girls have a more modern look on life than Jam and Jerusalem and brought in a dance instructor to show them the moves to Michael Jackson's classic.
More than 30 hopefuls trooped to Wookey Hole earlier this month to become the next cave-dwelling cheese-eating crone of the tourist attractions which also has pirates and dinosaurs. Many of them were awful.
Our photographer Jason Bryant can't leave those zombies alone. As well as an amazing gallery from the day he ended up joining the undead by being eaten on camera.
