Wool, Wiltshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

Halloween Dare.

Count Dracula took the form of a dog as he landed and raced up the stairs to Whitby Abbey and disappeared into the night.

At Armley Mill, Leeds there is the most wonderful old cinema tucked away at the end of a gallery, where last week they were showing the 1931 Dracula film.

It was the perfect film for Halloween in the perfect setting, an old cinema within an old mill…..

We just had to get a copy when we came home… dare you watch it?

  1. EEK ! No scary movies for me! But I do love the spooky look of the old Abbey.

  2. Nooo! Too scary for me! 😊

  3. Waa haaaaaa haaaaaaaaa ha ha!

  4. You crack me up, Cathy! Such a sweet gentle, grandma pitch Dracula on the net!!πŸ˜‚

    The Abbey looks amazing. Like some of your other readers i am not a fan of horror movies. I can read them, but am to much of a coward to watch them!

  6. Halloween is my kids favorite but has never been mine. I don’t do scary so I will sit with a sappy Hallmark Halloween movie tonight. I have a little candy for early and young. Later the lights go out when the older kids try to haunt the neighborhood. The old classics were not as scary as the newer, gorier movies. I think they were better but then, I’m old. πŸ˜‰

    • I will e honest I don’t care for horror films, but I do like a good spooky book and Dracula the book is scary. The opening scenes of this film were spot on for atmosphere but departing the book!

  7. Such perfectly spooky places! I would absolutely watch a classic horror film (Johnny Depp’s Dracula didn’t do much for me). 1922’s “Nosferatu” – that bald head! the ears! those long fingernails! – was uber-creepy!

  8. Nope! Thankfully I live in a country where this has never taken off – but we do still let off fireworks for a reason most youngsters have no clue about πŸ™‚

    • When I was a child we had Mischief Night on 4 November, it has now been relegated by Halloween. We live at the end of a dark road and so far, no-one has dared to come up.

  9. I don’t like scary movies!!! I will watch thrillers, but not horror.

  10. Ooh, the Abbey does look very spooky doesn’t it you wouldn’t catch me there at night. 😱
    Mlle. Tialys the Younger and I are off out for a meal and perhaps a spooky cocktail then home to watch a horror film. It’s Mr. Tialys’s birthday today but he’s in the U.K. so we are celebrating without him but Mlle. Tialys the Elder is over there so will hopefully take him somewhere nice tonight (although I’m sure it’ll be him paying the bill!).

  11. I don’t think vampires would do so well in Australia… too much sunshine. The Count would get slapped on the back, told to take off that silly cape and have a coldie. Oh, and we know a good dentist for those unfortunate teeth.

  12. I would love to watch it. πŸ™‚
    Whitby is a favourite place of mine and the old fashioned picture house sounds wonderful.
    Apparently the mill opposite where I live ( Holmes Mill ) is going to open a cinema in it too, so can’t wait for that!

    • I could have sat and watched the film from beginning to end in the cinema, it was wonderful, and the film was just perfect in there.

  13. Oh what a wonderful old ruin!!! lovely!

    I don’t watch any horror movies anymore. the news is bad enough for me.
