Dracula returns – landslide at St. Mary’s Church sends gory human bodies tumbling into the town below
St. Mary’s Church in the English town of Whitby, the clifftop church and adjoining graveyard that inspired Bram Stoker’s 1897 Dracula novel, is once again scaring the hell out of people. Heavy rain and a busted drainage pipe have led to landslides at the tourist attraction which caused gory human remains to tumble down on the houses and businesses. The landslide opened up graves in the ancient cemetery causing the macabre debris to slither down onto the city below. This is the second time this year that the cliff and cemetery have experienced slides that released dead bodies.
