Wee Gyspsy Girl

We at City of the Dead like praise.  We like it a lot.  So we were pleased to get this lovely review on the Wee Gypsy Girl Blog. Check it out here…. Explore Edinburgh’s Haunted Underground with City of the Dead Tours    

Train to Busan

We at City of the Dead are sick to death of zombie movies.  So sick, we’ve come back to life and then been sick all over again.  Until we watched Train To Busan.

Happy Easter!

We at City of the Dead have resigned ourselves to eternal damnation, so it’s nice to see a former staff member getting out.  This is Duncan, who used to work for us, but now believes he is mankind’s saviour.   The scooter is for chasing Satan….

There are all sorts, but many of them are are attacks by the Mackenzie Poltergeist.  So we’ve decided to start posting them regularly – both pictures … Read More

Another Award Nomination

We at COTD are always getting awarded stuff.  Restraining orders count, don’t they? But we’re especially pleased with a nomination from the Luxury Travel Guide Global Awards.  We don’t know what we’d win but anything with ‘luxury’ in the title will do fine.  Car.  Jet.  Holiday in Thailand….
