Spend The Night With Count Dracula!

Don’t wait, you can win a night at Vlad’s place! Yes, Dracula’s castle – the real life home to Vlad the Impaler, will have overnight guests this Halloween, the first time since 1948 that anyone has slept in the Transylvanian fortress!

According to the Associated Press:

“The site’s actual name is Bran Castle, and two people will get to sleep there Oct. 31 thanks to a promotion by Airbnb. The guests will be wined and dined, then left alone to lie down in red velvet-trimmed coffins just as Dracula did in the Bram Stoker horror novel that popularized the legend.

The castle is famous for its connection to Vlad the Impaler, a real-life prince who stayed there in the 15th century and had a cruel habit of using stakes to impale his victims. Vlad inspired Stoker’s story of Count Dracula.”

I came across this great contest at the website for the Napa Valley Register newspaper, which really does “cover the world!”

Read the whole story here:

How much fun would it be to see Translyvania from this place:

If it makes you yearn for some good “Dracula” movies, well I have a bit of a sexy twist for you!

Countess Dracula!

Here is an example of a modern take on a classic tale, and all ready of you to view on this 18th day of Shocktober!

Like all vintage Hammer horror, the plot is simple but effective: In medieval Europe aging Countess Elisabeth rules harshly with the help of lover Captain Dobi. Hammer scored big with sex kitten Ingrid Pitt, who was not only a great actress but a great beauty as well!

So an evil Countess – how to make it erotic? Easy! The Countess realizes that washing in the blood of young girls makes her young again!

“Washing In The Blood Of Young Girls” Indeed!

“Erotic horror” was Hammer’s attempt to stay relevant, and “Countess Dracula” and was a big hit that offered up lots of nudity and gore! All of this led to what many consider to be Hammer’s greatest achievement:So enter to spend the night in Dracula’s castle, enjoy some “Countess Dracula”, and see all of my first ten films of Shocktober by clicking here:

    #31daysofhalloween #shocktober Would you spend a night in Dracula’s castle?

  2. As I don’t live in the US, I doubt I would qualify for the competition.
    Besides, those coffins look a little uncomfortable…
    Best wishes, Pete.
