What a Nice Review

We at City of the Dead love praise.   And when it comes from a Belgian blog called Graveyard Picnic?  Well, that certainly makes our night. In the meantime, here’s a pic of our latest poltergeist attack…. https://catacombxkitten.blogspot.be/2017/07/travel-worlds-most-haunted-graveyard.html

The Royal Mile: A Comprehensive Guide

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1445658453  We at City of the Dead are rather the history buffs.  When was the Great Fire of 1824?  In 1824.

It’s South Korean, so expect subtitles, less than subtle melodrama and copious amounts of man weepage.  Even so , it’s the best zombie flick ever. EVER!
