Vampires take over Dublin

bram stoker

She lives beyond the grace of God, a wanderer in the outer darkness. She is “vampyr”, “nosferatu”. These creatures do not die like the bee after the first sting, but instead grow strong and become immortal once infected by another nosferatu. So, my friends we fight not one beast but legions that go on age after age after age, feeding on blood of the living.”

Tomorrow I will be travelling up to Dublin, where I will venture into the the gothic world of Bram Stokers novel ‘Dracula’. The Annual Bram Stoker festival is held in Dublin from 26th – 28th October, and will celebrate the life, work and legacy of Dublin horror novelist. Its gonna be a jam packed weekend full of Vampires and horror. If I make it out alive, I hope to share my encounter with you. If you are interested in coming along yourself, check out the official website

    Hope the vampire festival went well, Ed. By an odd coincidence, we had some friends round last night and one of them was telling us about his experiences as an extra in the new Dracula film. Apparently there was a problem with the catering and a woman suddenly rushed in and shouted “nobody eat the chicken – it’s raw!”. Apparently he joined the ranks of the undead for a couple of days before recovering from the food poisoning …

    • Ah, nothing worse than raw chicken, Festival went really well. Its been a hectic weekend between the festival, a halloween party and my neices Birthday. My feet took a bad hammering on Saturday, but I hope to get some shots posted this week, 🙂
