‘The Evil Inside’ (2012) trailer
There was also ‘Treetop Tania’ (a rich brat and a poor girl are stranded on a desert island and are there for years and become expert survivors and then the island volcano erupts. Poor girl dies; rich girl is rescued and brought to a home she no longer fits into). ‘Wee Slavey’ (adventures of a put-upon scullery maid in Victorian times). ‘The Impostor!’ (a Victorian lady has her identity stolen by a maid and cannot prove who she really is). ‘Catch The Cat' (a girl in occupied France pretends to be a collaborator whilst working secretly for the Resistance as The Cat, a spy in a body stocking whom everyone thinks is a man for some reason), ‘My Mum’s a Stranger’ (a girl’s mother turns nasty). ‘Kidnappers on the Pony Trek Trail’ (does exactly what it says on the tin).
There was also ‘Sylvie Must Skate’ (a girl has stage parents from hell). ‘Vanishing Vicky’ (a girl turns invisible and pretends to be a ghost). ‘Pandora’s Box’ (a girl’s button collection tells her stories of the owners past). ‘Betsy at Big-Top Hotel’ (circus folk run a hotel). ‘Hopeless Hope - She’s No Dope’ (a fat girl is bullied by her peers) and ‘The Phantom Swimmer’ (does exactly what it says on the tin).
Even more stories came back to me. ‘Mog’ (an intelligent cat has adventures). ‘Who is Astra?’ (a girl comes to stay and everything gets weird. This was a creepy tale of parallel universes). ‘Little Sir Echo’ (a magic thing shouts a lot). ‘Wilma’s Water Babies’ (a synchronised swim team have fun). ‘Tina and Tuff’ (a fat girl and a tiny girl with Bruce Lee skills arrive at boarding school and sort the bullies out). ‘Beware the Grey Guardians’ (a secret society at yet another upper class boarding school have adventures). ‘The Girl at the Window’ (a girl is in peril) and ‘Joy of the Gym’ (gymnastics fun).
‘The Sailor Doll’ (a girl fears her school cruise is recreating the doomed Titanic). ‘The Secret of Diana’s Desk’ (a girl is controlled by her school desk). ‘Super Girl’ (crippled Suzie Sullivan is actually a bionic secret agent who has a miniature TV in her crutch). ‘Teeny Tina’ (a girl has a tiny double) I’m going to try and recall more. This nostalgia was fun.

Random street ranter quote:
There will be no review of ‘The Night of the Swarm’.
I am reading ‘14’.
I have developed a fondness for Frosted S’mores pop tarts.
They’ve filmed that silly 1960s novel ‘Trap for Cinderella’ in which an amnesic gas blast victim wonders is she the heiress Mi or her murderous BFF Do. Ridiculous.
What on earth happened to Cory Monteith?
Bear Grylls giving himself an enema with bird poo water on a life raft was DISGUSTING.
On ‘Hollyoaks’, Tony is still boring. Ste is a scrote, is he still partnered to Doug? Diane is clueless. Dr Browning seems to be the only doctor in Chester. Jack wears tiny yellow shorts. Ste’s mother is dying.
“He is poison!”
This had excessive yelling, personality flaws, class tensions, dated technology, Gellar wears a bad wig, Hewitt wears makeup that makes her look like she has TB and this was illogical. Helen holds a cigarette she never seems to smoke, no-one notices a killer with a hook prancing around in a rain slicker in July, everyone is an idiot and stuff comes out of the stuff bag. This had a bizarre ending and was followed by two rancid sequels.
“Jodie Foster tried this and a skin ripping serial killer answered the door.”
Then there was a ‘Charmed’ season 3 ep ‘Look Who’s Barking’ which saw a banshee lurking. Phoebe is wildly insensitive and persecutes Cole. The sisters never read the Book of Shadows properly. Prue transforms into a dog. Phoebe becomes a banshee, that’s what happens when she forgets to have sex. Cole was yumbers. This was dull and mangled the banshee mythos.
Then came the season 2 ‘The Invisible Man’ ep ‘Legends’ which saw Hobbes, the Keep and Darien prance around the woods looking for Bigfoot or the Wendigo or something. Darien wears a ugly hat. This was dull. A loony hunter lurks and Darien learns the invisibility gland was harvested from a Bigfoot/Wendigo/whatever and was not created in a lab by his dead brother after all. The Bigfoot/Wendigo/whatever wants boom boom with Darien.
