This is the biggest news i have had to put on the blog so far. It has been announced this morning, that an international horror film festival has been lined up for the 16-19th october this year in Whitby, the week before the Whitby Gothic weekend. To quote the article in the Whitby Gazette "The Bram Stoker International Film Festival will be held over four days with more than 30 horror, sci-fi and thriller films including 10 UK and five world premieres. The festival, for over 18s only, is from 16 to 19 October and will also be the official European book launch of Dracula: The Un-Dead, a sequel to the famous novel written by Stoker's great grand-nephew, Dacre, who is the festival's honorary president.
Dacre Stoker delved into his ancestor's handwritten notes on the original Dracula novel to pen his sequel, Dracula: The Un-Dead, which was the original name for the first Dracula before an editor changed the title."
