Films 67 and 68: Sick Bastard and Home Made
I ended up writing quite a lot on Impey, more than I planned. I cover Sick Bastard in detail - or as much detail as such a basic film can warrant - and touch lightly on Home Made before gesturing vaguely towards Impey's later releases. If you take a look at his website, you'll see that he's forever re-editing, re-titling and re-combining his features and shorts. I don't need to go into that much detail, thank God.
Impey's films per se aren't particularly interesting but what they represent, in terms of distribution and marketing in the 21st century, is fascinating and fits perfectly into one of the main themes of the book.

Hi Mike, I too am covering Impey's stuff in my PhD research on contemporary British horror. I have recently uploaded a short section in which I look at self-distribution, if you're at all curious: http://websploitation.blogspot.com.ReplyDelete
Good to see that you too are digging deep for your book!
