Five places to visit if you love vampires

vampire restaurant

To celebrate the book release of Strange Blood: 71 Essays on Offbeat and Underrated Vampire Movies, here are five places to visit if you love vampires:

Lost Boys Pizza

Not just the name of this pizza joint in Archway, London, has been inspired by the 1980s vampire movie The Lost Boys, but also the background music, the look of the pizzas (charcoal black), their names (Kale All Vampires, Fangs for the Memories, etc), and events (vampire yoga and special screenings of The Lost Boys).

Highgate Cemetery

One of the world's most haunted cemeteries is said to have a vampire roaming the premises. The many cats of this cemetery are supposed to protect us from this evil being.

Vampire Café

The Vampire Café is actually a restaurant instead of a café and can be found in Shinjuku, Japan. What to expect: cross-shaped food, darkness, blood-red decorations, and waiters dressed-up as a vampire and speaking with a Transylvanian accent.

The Museum of Vampires and Legendary Creatures

Located in Les Lilas, France, the Musée des vampires et du monde de l'imaginaire dives deep into vampirism and supernatural folklore through rare texts, antique books, Hammer film collectibles, Dracula toys, and vampire killing kits.

Bran Castle

Also known as Dracula's Castle, this is a hilltop estate where you can learn all about its connection to Bram Stoker's Dracula as well as many other Transylvanian legends. A tour of the castle lasts four hours.

About Strange Blood: 71 Essays on Offbeat and Underrated Vampire Movies:

This is an overview of the most offbeat and unique vampire movies spanning nine decades and 23 countries.

Strange Blood encompasses well-known hits as well as obscurities that differ from your standard fang fare by turning genre conventions on their head. Forget about Dracula and sparkling vampires. Here, they come in the form of cars, pets, aliens, mechanical objects, gorillas, and floating heads. And when they do look like a demonic monster or an aristocratic Count or Countess, they break the mold in terms of imagery, style, or setting.

Leading horror writers, filmmakers, actors, distributors, academics, and festival programmers present their favorite vampire films through in-depth essays, providing background information, analysis, and trivia regarding the various films. Some of these stories are hilarious, some are terrifying, some are touching, and some are just plain weird. Not all of these movies line up with the critical consensus, yet they have one thing in common: they are unlike anything you've ever seen in the world of vampires.

Just when you thought that the children of the night had become a tired trope, it turns out they have quite a diverse inventory after all.

  15. The main purpose of education is to help students gain the knowledge and skills so that they will be able to function in society. Students need to be provided with the necessary skills so that they can learn to become productive citizens. There are many advantages that are associated with receiving an education. Students will be able to contribute to their community and help make it a better place to live. Education basically helps shape society because it helps students learn to become more sociable and helps them develop relationships with their peers. Students will be more qualified for different job positions if they have a good solid education. Education is vital to each student’s life, therefore, by working hard to provide the best instruction possible will help train students to become future leaders and will lead to a better life.
    Education is essential to every student’s life as well as their future. Students can have a prosperous life by receiving a good quality education. My thoughts are that students need to learn from the books along with other various materials just as I did while growing up. The classroom curriculum should be decided by their teacher and the teacher should set clear goals as to what is expected from the students. Students should work hard to achieve their goals because it will certainly be worth it in the end. According to essentialism, ‘Schools should not radically try to reshape society but schools should transmit traditional moral values and intellectual knowledge that students need to become model citizens’. Read about education help at http://www.top-essay-writing-service.com . The school should stress the importance of values because some children are not taught these at home. Teaching children good values helps build their character and helps them become respectable people. In regards to education, I think society is important because this is a place where we all live so we should work to make it a better place.
