The glorious castle of Gormenghast is home to the ancient family of Groan, where nothing has changed for thousands of years. The dynasty is threatened by the charming and evil kitchen-boy Steerpike. With the birth of a new heir, Titus Groan, Steerpike begins his ruthless ascent to power.
As he charms, outwits and terrorises the castle's inhabitants, only Titus, the young and timid Earl of Groan, stands in Steerpike's way. Who will triumph? And can Gormenghast survive?

Your review of 'Gormenghast (DVD)' has been sent.
“This is Salvidor dali meets eastenders. Its full of mind blowing photography and can be watched 100s of times. The books writer died from insanity and some depression brought on by his critics. The book is 1000 p long and its crammed into this 4x45mins production. A love story between a princess and a rebel underlines the whole thing...great stuff.”
