Sit Back, But Don't Relax
Dracula: Sex, Sucking, and Stardom


After a successful premiere last year, the London Horror Festival is back. From the 15th October to the 7th November, you can look forward to three weeks of spine-chilling theatre, comedy, and magic.

All but one of the events are being held at the Etcetera Theatre in Camden Town, with a line-up that includes a spoof tutorial by the Zombie Institute of Theoretical Studies, short-listed radio dramas from the Stage Fright writing competition, and an absurd comedy revamp of Bram Stoker's Dracula.

Also on the programme is Fresh, Live & Dead, which will be performed by a talented young theatre company called 'The Improsarios'. Every night at 7.30pm between the 23rd and 25th October, these talented actors will improvise a new horrific play. Tickets are 6, and even if you go every night you will still see something different.

At 9.30 on the same nights, The Puppetry of Flesh will be showing. Sam is tormented by voices, terrible memories, and frightful dreams, all of which come to life through the skilful, but unsettling performance of live actors and puppets. Tickets are 10.

Being held at the Wilton's Music Hall between the 24th and 7th November is the bloody comedy The Horror! The Horror! For 17.50, you can experience a night of 'murder, mayhem, and barnstorming madness'. Performances are at 7.30pm and 9.30pm.
