Read Book* *Different edition
Munich. A visiting, adventurous Englishman out for a leisurely carriage ride, the warning to return before dark. Howling wolves, frightened horses and thick clouds followed by a storm of hail and snow....and the unholy village cemetery of buried undead. The carriage long gone, the man now alone........
Walpurgis Night - "when the graves were open and the dead came forth and walked. When all evil things of earth and air and wate...more
Dracula’s Guest: This is part of the original Dracula which was cut to reduce the length. It has very little to do with Dracula (the character and the book) and is a bit of an odd story really. That being said they are so very creepy moments in it.
The Judge’s House: A haunted house story which is absolutely fantastic. It’s chilling.
The Squaw: A particularly gr ...more

This one was actually quite good, and downright creepy. Made all the more so by the dramatic reading audio I listened to as it had sound effects to add to the atmosphere of the reading and a very good narrator. I kind of wish the "real" Dracula book had been written this way. I think I would have enjoyed it a lot more than I did. Rather than it being in letter/j ...more
