Apologies if i've done something wrong - this is my first torrent!
As requested, here's an XviD rip of this DVD.
For those that aren't familiar:
Rough Magik was originally filmed as a pilot starring Paul Darrow as Mister Moon for the BBC. Sadly it was not transmitted or picked up for a series. It is now only available on DVD. The DVD also includes (as extra features) adaptions of TheTerrible Old Man and From Beyond.[/quote]
When the Earth was young, an alien creature plunged from the stars in fire and pain. The salts of the ocean infected its wounds and the god-like being fell into a deathless slumber.
When humanity finally crawled out of the primeval slime it was not alone. . . the Sleeping God, Cthulhu, was waiting to invade its dreams. Those who heard his telepathic call became the cruel instruments of an alien will. It was the first Dark Age. Then in a brutal purge by primitive man, all such Dreamers were exterminated.
More millennia passed.
The Night Scholars was a clandestine organization setup to monitor the ancient cult of the Sleeping God. In the early 1950s it began compiling an enormous database of arcane information and its findings resulted in a single, incontrovertible, conclusion: the Sleeping God was waking.
In 1974, underground film smuggled out of East Germany convinced the British Government of the terrorist threat posed by the rapidly expanding cult. Major Henry Armitage, the head of the Night Scholars, forged an uneasy alliance with the Home Office which lasted until 1993, when he was sectioned as being mentally incompetent by his own daughter.
Diana Armitage, with the help of her Home Office liaison, the mysterious Mr. Moon, launched an aggressive campaign against the Dreamers. This operation was designated the Rough Magik initiative. But they trod on the toes of some powerful people, amidst accusations of financial impropriety and possible treason, the Night Scholars were disbanded in 1996.
Now the old magic is returning. The Sleeping God is rising. And there are more Dreamers than Mr. Moon can handle as he struggles to rebuild the Night Scholars.
