After his father's mysterious death, a young novelist confronting writer's block, steals back to his rural roots, in search of inspiration - and answers. On his ferry trip to Glory, a person goes overboard and dies. It seems an accident, but the novelist thinks otherwise. His best-selling first novel revealed the seamy underbelly of his hometown - so the home folks are furious at the prodigal's return. He tries to get help from the strong-willed, beautiful, local coroner (Poppy Montgomery). Glory Days' novelist hero Mike Cahill return to "Glory" has similarities to acclaimed novelist Dave Grubb's life. "Glory" was also the name Grubb used for a fictionalized Moundsville, West Virginia in his writing. Davis Grubb was a descendant of an old prominent family in Moundsville. Like Cahill, he mined the river-town's history for his works, including his award-winning first novel _Night of the Hunter, The (1955)_, about a serial killer stalking prey along the Ohio River.

The young writer and prodigal son Mike Dolan (Eddie Cahil) returns home, after writing a successful book, where he used real events with his relatives and closest friends as if they were fictional characters. While traveling in a ferry, he is the unique person to see a man being pushed overboard. The office in charge of the investigation is Sheriff Rudy Dunlop (Jay R. Ferguson), a former friend and hurt with the comments of Mike's book. The coroner Ellie (Poppy Montgomery) finds fingerprints in the dead body indicating that Mike's observations were correct. After resolving this crime, a slaughterer clown kills and decapitates his victims. And finally, in a competition about the best seaman of the island, persons are being drowned on earth. Yesterday I saw this VHS, released by 'Warner do Brasil' with the compilation of three episodes of this unreleased series (in Brazil) and I liked. The unique known actress (for me) is Theresa Russell, but the young cast works very well, there are good sarcastic lines and the stories are very engaging. My complaint is against the disgusting procedure of 'Warner do Brasil', which released a VHS with a cover and a title ('Demon Town: The City of the Demon') inducing the viewers that 'Glory Days' would be a horror movie. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): 'Demon Town: A Cidade do Demônio' ('Demon Town: The City of the Demon')
