Bram Stoker Film Festival - Whitby, England

There are horror film festivals galore in October. This weekend's Bram Stoker Festival however, has probably the best location for such an event as one could hope for. Whitby England served as the muse to many of Bram Stoker's writings, including of course, Dracula.
Many of the films are independent features making their world or UK premieres. The best directors of the genre from around the world are represented, including more well known auteurs like Sam Raimi showing Drag Me to Hell. Special guests include Ingrid Pitt, "Queen of Horror" from films like Countess Dracula, Vampire Lovers, The House That Dripped Blood and The Wicker Man.
On opening night, the performers of 666Gorefest and Sin City Girls welcome you with sexy fun. You can also be entertained be the rousing The Mocky Horror Tribute Show.

Need to stretch your legs? Sunday, October 18th marks the "Vampire Walk" where fans can walk the 199 steps towards St. Mary's church as described in "Dracula". In the book, Count Dracula walks these steps after being shipwrecked in a violent storm, taking refuge in the grave of a suicide victim.
